USA coach disappointed but full of praise for Mexico

USA coach Bob Bradley was definitely disappointed with the loss in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final but took nothing away from winners Mexico.

The US team raced away to a two-goal lead at the Pasadena Rose Bowl on Saturday but were pegged back by a tenacious Mexico outfit, who scored twice in each half to take out their sixth competition win.

Bradley admitted that it was a second-rate way for the tournament to end but in saying so was also full of praise for El Tri.

"It's a difficult way for us to end the tournament for sure. As a team we made a lot of progress and we were looking forward to this matchup," he said.

"It's a very good game. It's fast. There's a lot of very good attacking on both sides.

"We certainly congratulate Mexico. Give credit to them for some of the soccer they put together and like I said we put a good amount into it and we're disappointed to let one slip away."
