GAME TWO IN TAMPA: After a successful start to the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 2-0 win against Canada in Detroit, the U.S. headed south to Tampa, Fla., to prepare to face Panama on Saturday, June 11, at Raymond James Stadium. Group C’s first-place position is up for grabs as Panama was 3-2 winners against Guadeloupe in Tuesday’s other match and currently sits in second place behind the U.S. on goal differential. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. CT and the match will be broadcast live on FOX Soccer, TeleFutura, CONCACAF.com and univision.com.
