Beckerman, Beltran, Rimando & US advance to Gold Cup Final
SANDY, Utah - Real Salt Lake Captain Kyle Beckerman, defender Tony Beltran, goalkeeper Nick Rimando and the U.S. national team advanced on Wednesday night to the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final, beating Honduras 3-1 in the semifinals in Dallas to move to Sunday's final against Panama in Chicago.
Rimando and Beckerman both started for Jurgen Klinsmann's side, with Beckerman playing a very effective 67 minutes at holding midfielder and Rimando going the full 90 and making one save for the Stars-and-Stripes. Beltran did not see any action off the bench for the U.S.
Both Beckermand and Rimando are likely to start again in Sunday's final, which will be broadcast live on Fox and Univision beginning at 2:00 p.m. MT.
