These teams have met in the Gold Cup tournament six times, but this will be their inaugural meeting in a final. All previous encounters took place in semi-finals – Panama caused shock when they eliminated Mexico in 2013 before Mexico got even.
Both teams should expect to play solid defensive football. Defenses will look for openings to attack while attacking players look to create chances. Panama forward Ismael Diaz poses a significant threat; his power and speed could prove difficult for opponents’ defenses. His performance against Qatar was outstanding.

Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa leads by example with excellent performances, while midfielders Hector Herrera and Andres Guardado stand out as premier midfielders. Mexico’s strong defenders will make life difficult for Panama when scoring goals against them.

Mexico vs. Honduras
Mexico and Honduras know this opening match of the 2023 Gold Cup is crucial, taking place at NRG Stadium in Houston and broadcast live by FOX Sports 1. FuboTV also offers free trial subscriptions so fans can watch live stream.
Honduras are considered underdogs to Mexico in this matchup, yet are hoping for an upset win. El Tri finished runner-up last year but is hoping for better this time. Kickoff for this game begins at 8 pm ET on September 9, and you can stream it live via FuboTV (free trial available).
Both Mexico and Honduras boast talent-laden rosters. However, Mexico stands out as possessing more top players than Honduras does, such as Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Raul Jimenez, who has become one of the premier players worldwide over recent years; other top Mexican talents include Octavio Rivera, Jesus Gallardo, and Jose Manuel Velasco among many more.
Striker Alberth Elis leads Honduras, but their team lacks depth. Without Alberth getting his shot off, they may struggle with scoring goals if not given access. New coach Diego Vasquez still needs time to build this squad up as a whole unit but should make strides with each passing match.
Mexico will likely field the same lineup that defeated Guatemala 3-0 in their inaugural match, probably keeping faith with Henry Martin and Santiago Gimenez, who both performed strongly against Guatemala in their debut matchup. Jaime Lozano should place trust in these players, who both performed admirably against Guatemala.
Honduras have their best chance at scoring from their wings, where Ivan Anderson and Edson Alvarez can create opportunities. But they must be more accurate with their passes and crosses for this tactic to work effectively.
Both countries boast an abundance of food to offer, yet each has unique offerings as well. Both countries share similar dishes like tortillas (especially corn) as the staple. Other notable dishes are tajadas, fried plantains, and mondongo soup, made of cow intestines.
Mexico vs. Jamaica
Mexico vs Jamaica will be one of the most exciting matches of the Gold Cup semifinals. Mexico has looked impressive thus far and could make another run at winning. Yet, they will face an uphill struggle against Jamaica, whose Reggae Boyz have proven tough opponents with players like Leon Bailey capable of turning games with his dribbling.
Mexico and Jamaica will face off at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. Mexico coach Gerardo Martino favors an offensive approach with his team, likely fielding Hirving Lozano and Orbelin Pineda as key contributors. Meanwhile, Jamaica coach Theodore Whitmore is known for taking a more conservative stance, probably using counterattacks to create scoring opportunities and play back five formations against his opponent.
After an uneven start, Mexico took control of their game in the second half with goals from two top scorers – Luis Chavez’s free-kick almost hit the crossbar before landing into one corner of the plan, and Michail Antonio nearly scored from close range. Still, his attempt was blocked by a defender.
Mexico had several late chances in the final minutes to take advantage of but couldn’t convert them. A last-minute penalty shootout produced a 1-1 tie, ensuring both teams reached the semifinals.
Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake made excellent saves against Mexico to preserve a draw, sending his side into the semifinals. Mexico is is the favorite to advance, but Jamaica is a dangerous rival with some top talent on display.

Mexico vs. Costa Rica
Mexico’s national team faces an uphill task against Costa Rica in the Gold Cup quarter-finals. Mexico is looking to reach the semi-finals for a ninth straight time while Costa Rica has struggled for consistency; these teams have met 57 times before, with Mexico holding an advantage of 31-18-6 in head-to-head competitions.
Mexican opponents have dominated possession yet failed to convert this advantage into goals. Mexico will aim to break this deadlock in this game as they hope to avoid their third consecutive loss in this tournament by scoring early.
Mexico is a solid favorite to win this matchup; however, the Costa Rican team is a dangerous contender capable of scoring independently. A goal they scored could make this contest exciting and potentially unseat Mexico.
Costa Rica is coming off an impressive 6-4 victory against Martinique in their final group stage match, moving them into second place and setting up a playoff against Jamaica or Guatemala for the second spot. Furthermore, this victory strengthened Costa Rica’s chances of making the semifinals.
Mexico and Costa Rica remain undefeated thus far in the tournament, though Costa Rica has shown some weak spots and remains dangerous for their opponents. Mexico remains in contention and hopes to take advantage of their home crowd for victory.
Mexico has been one of the strongest teams in this tournament and will look to keep up their good performance against Costa Rica in this matchup. El Tri is considered a solid favorite to win and should make the final four.
The team will likely play similarly to previous matches, though they will strive to improve their finishing. A three-man attack may form, with Luis Romo at the forefront. He has scored two goals while creating one more during this tournament and will likely be joined by forwards Henry Martin and Santiago Gimenez.
