The U.S. Men’s National team rolled to a 1-0 victory over Panama in the Gold Cup final Sunday before a raucous crowd at Soldier Field in Chicago.
The U.S. backline was anchored by Clarence Goodson, earning a shutout for the stars and stripes. Before Goodson was an international centerback or a standout at Maryland, he was a floppy-haired striker with the Braddock Road Warhawks.
It was with the Warhawks that Goodson and Shawn won the U-17 national championship in 1999. That connection has never left, as Goodson reminded everyone Sunday.
You can see Goodson repping Kuykenstrong in the post-game celebration below (hint: look for the white shirt).
