US Soccer – 2002 FC Gold Cup

by John Santos

The one from 2002 is special.  Granted, it may be a little beat up, but it’s from FCGoldCup-Ticket-Stubthe first time I ever saw the US national team in person.

Sure, I had to wait for the “under card” to play out, but it was all in good fun.  Not only did the US win its match against South Korea, they would also go on to win the 2002 Gold Cup.

Also, no one on the stadium knew it at the time, but the US and Mexico would face off later that summer in the World Cup and beat them 2-0 as they made their way to the Quarterfinals, finishing 8th in the World.
