The Full 90

TMK: After the Gold Cup rush

After putting in a full shift and then some last night, the Morning Kickoff is only dishing reaction on the action at Livestrong Sporting Park.

The U.S. moves to the knockout phase with a

dominate yet ineffective 1-0 win over Guadeloupe

Check out my thoughts as the events were unfolding in and around the park.

My favorite post-game analysis falls to The Shin Guardian:

The first game of the night was a

1-1 draw between Panama and Canada that eliminated Canada from the Cup

.

I thought this was a poignant piece of Canadian analysis.

The Gold Cup quarterfinals start on Saturday. Here are the matchups:
