The United States suffered a humiliating 5-nil defeat by Mexico in the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in New York.

The victory gave Mexico a record fifth Gold Cup title and was their first victory away to the U.S since 1999.

The 2 sides are due to meet again next month in a World Cup qualifier at the Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.

The CONCACAF confederation is for North and Central American teams including those in the Caribbean.
