USA 1 - Panama 2

US National Team Players, June 11, 2011

The United States got a first-half shock at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Saturday night, falling behind by two goals to Panama. Luis Tejada opened the scoring in the 18th minute and Gabriel Gomez doubled the lead from the penalty spot in the 35th. The USA came back when Clarence Goodson headed in a goal from a set piece in the 67th minute. Though the US came close several times in the closing minutes, they were unable to find an equalizer.

“You can’t start that way," US midfielder Landon Donovan said. "I think for some reason we were just a little lackadaisical, a little complacent early. We had some of the ball and we felt OK about ourselves, but they put us on our heels a few times and they made a play that changed the game. The penalty is a little fluky and now we’re chasing the game. We can’t start that way; that’s the overwhelming, obvious point.”

In the other Group C game, Canada beat Guadeloupe 1-0. Dwayne De Rosario converted a 50th minute penalty for the game's only goal.
