The U.S. men's national team failed to win its Gold Cup opener on Saturday, drawing ambitious Panama 1-1 in the opener.

With the goal in his United States of America debut last week, Dwyer and his spouse Sydney Leroux became the first husband-and-wife duo to each score for the USA. Panama's a good team and they're getting better.

At the opposite end, USA goalkeeper Brad Guzan dove at full extension to push Miguel Camargo's right-footed curler just wide of the far post.

French Guiana for the past two years has played only in the Caribbean Cup, starting with the qualification and ending with the main tournament having spent 8 fights, having won 5 wins, with one draw and two defeats. The last four matches between the nations have ended in 1-1 ties. It should be noted that most of the players on this roster are not "A" team guys so for so many of them to put in solid performances is very good.

Dwyer, the husband of US women's team forward Sydney Leroux, ran onto a cross from Kelyn Rowe following a throw-in by Jorge Villafana. Save for Kelyn Rowe, none of the USA midfielders could generate chances with any sort of regularity, and simply keeping possession proved hard against Panama's central midfield pairing of Anibal Godoy and Gabriel Gomez. Rowe set up the chance with some skillful dribbling moves to get by Luis Ovalle, then a pass toward the top of the box.

And with the toughest game of the group stage against Panama being played first, it's hard not to see the USA doing well at this edition of the Gold Cup.

Mexico was accused of overlooking the us, but the every-two-days schedule favored the Americans, who were fit and strong physically.

On Saturday, the latest quest will begin in Nashville, Tennessee, against Panama, an opponent that has historically done plenty to push the Americans to their absolute limit, and on occasion, beyond. This year features a fresh face, newcomer Curacao, which qualified for the first time after finishing in the top four of the Caribbean Cup.

Hernan Gomez's team, firmly on the front foot, found an equaliser after an excellent Guzan save dropped right to Camargo, who clipped home a shot from eight yards away.

He got his first cap in the USMNT's warmup friendly with Ghana last week, making him the 48th American to score in his senior level debut. Strangely enough the USA has only won the Gold Cup once in the last four tries (2013), bottoming out in the last edition in 2015 with a 4th place finish (losing the 3rd place game to Panama on penalties).
