Panama booked its place in the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals with a 3-0 win over Martinique in Cleveland on Saturday.

With Panama's 3-0 victory over Martinique earlier in the day, Team USA knew coming into the showdown with Nicaragua it needed to win by at least three goals to claim the top spot in Group B. The pressure was lessened since the US had already secured a spot in the knockout phase. Panama will play Costa Rica in Philadelphia on Wednesday night. The U.S.is now tied atop the group with Panama after squeaking out a 3-2 win over Martinique on Wednesday in Tampa.

At this stage of group play, getting the win was the most important thing for the United States.

The Americans applied early pressure but didn't sustain rhythm, struggled to connect passes and let the tempo drop. Corona, the late runner, took one touch forward and a pair of touches to his right to dodge two defenders.

Wilshere will be welcomed back into the fold provided he is ready to fight for his place in the starting XI. Sometimes I have left them out but it also depends on what shape they come back in.

However, Dom Dwyer and Corona saw second-half spot-kicks saved and United States appeared set to finish second to Panama in Group B.

Corona's goal came nearly four years to the day from his last one for the national team - also in the Gold Cup, on July 21, 2013 - in a 5-1 win over El Salvador.

Five minutes later, the Americans made no mistakes. Kelyn Rowe finished off a USMNT attack shortly before the hour mark to extend the lead for the tournament hosts. Jordan Morris played the hero, though, as he came through with the game-winner in the 75th minute. The USMNT would tack on a third goal in the 88th minute by way of a Matt Miazga header, three minutes after Nicaragua dropped to ten men due to defender Luis Copete receiving his second yellow card of the match.

But Matt Miazga scored an 88th-minute header - his first worldwide goal - to lift his side into top spot after Luis Fernando Copete had been sent off for Nicaragua.
