Jonathan dos Santos scored the only goal as Mexico defeated the United States 1-0 to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup for a record eighth time at Soldier Field on Sunday.
Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder dos Santos rifled home in the 73rd minute to settle a hard-fought encounter between the two arch-rivals of North American football in front of 62,493 fans.
The win handed Mexico their eighth Gold Cup title since the championship for teams from North America, Central America and the Caribbean (CONCACAF) was rebooted in 1991.
But it was a disappointing defeat for the Americas men, who had been hoping to complete a double victory for the country's representative teams after the US women's side powered to victory in the World Cup in France earlier on Sunday.
Dos Santos's winner was the outstanding move of a pulsating duel that saw the United States pay the price for failing to take advantage of several promising early chances.
The decisive goal came after a surging run down the right flank by Mexico's Rodolfo Pizarro.
The Monterrey playmaker fed Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Raul Jimenez, who produced a delightful back heel into the path of dos Santos who curled his shot into the top corner past USA goalkeeper Zack Steffen.
But the defeat left USA coach Gregg Berhalter reflecting on what might have been after his team had started the first half strongly, carving out a string of promising chances as Mexico took their time to get into the game.
Chelsea's Christian Pulisic squandered a golden opportunity to fire the Americans ahead after only six minutes, latching onto a deft layoff from striker Jozy Altidore.
Pulisic's searing pace took him clear of the Mexican defence, with Carlos Salcedo doing his best to unbalance the US attacker without conceding a penalty. But the Mexicans breathed a sigh of relief after Pulisic could only shoot directly at goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
The Mexicans received another huge let-off only two minutes later. A speculative long ball forward from defender Tim Ream caught the Mexico defence off-guard and Altidore was left in a one-on-one with Hector Moreno.
Altidore cleverly wrong-footed Moreno to leave himself one-on-one with Ochoa, but could only look on in disgust as he dragged his left foot shot just wide of the post.
The frenetic start also produced some rugged challenges. Altidore was lucky to escape at least a yellow card for scything down dos Santos while Pulisic was also fortunate not to be booked for a ferocious tackle from behind that sent Edson Alvarez crashing to the turf.
At the other end Mexico also began to test the US defence, with Andres Guardado shooting over on 16 minutes after a desperate late block from Paul Arriola.
