Carlisle's Gold Cup Preview: Lacks the intrigue of the 2007 edition

Two years ago, the Gold Cup was rife with intrigue. It was the first time U.S. coach Bob Bradley had managed the team in a tournament setting. Ditto for Mexico manager Hugo Sanchez, who was fired less than a year later. There were plenty of compelling matches along the way, with Guadeloupe stunning all and sundry with its run to the semifinals. And the U.S. came from behind to beat Mexico 2-1 in what was a captivating final.
