The U.S. men's national soccer team completes CONCACAF Gold Cup group play today against Nicaragua in Cleveland.
Nicaragua is the bottom feeder in Group B, losing 2-0 to Martinique and 2-1 to Panama.
Heading into the match, the U.S. MNT needed to win by three or more goals to take first place in the group and avoid a quarterfinal matchup with Costa Rica.
Babe Parilli, Bear Bryant's first championship QB, dead at age 87
Parilli's playing career ended with the Jets, where he won a ring as Joe Namath's backup in Super Bowl III. He played six seasons in the National Football League , then another 10 years in the AFL.
Joe Corona got the USMNT on the board in the 36th minute in somewhat fortunate circumstances. Both the United States and Panama ended group play with goal differentials of plus-4, with the next tiebreaker being total goal scored.
Miazga, a Chelsea defender playing his first worldwide match since May 2016, had an open header near a post and scored his first goal in three national team appearances. In the 56th minute, Zusi forced an errant pass that Bedoya intercepted and played to Dwyer.
Early in the second half, Dom Dwyer drew a penalty kick, then failed to convert as Justo Lorente blocked the waist-high shot targeting the left side. It took a slight deflection and beat Lorente to the near corner for Rowe's first global goal.

But the second goal came just seven minutes later, with Bedoya providing the assist once again. Coach Bruce Arena is expected to avail himself of several additions to his roster - each team is allowed to add six players for the knockout stages.
The Americans got another chance from the penalty spot in the 63rd minute after Dany Cadena handled the ball in the box on Bedoya's long run. With it looking like the United States might end up finishing second in group play to Panama on goal difference, Miazga scored on a header from a free kick in the 88th minute to grab hold of the group and ensure the USMNT finished on top.
