However, the game was marred by incidents of homophobic chanting from the crowd, leading to multiple interruptions in play.

Despite the disruptions, the US maintained their focus and clinched the title. This is not the first time such behavior has affected matches between the two sides, as a similar incident occurred during their last meeting in June 2023.

The discriminatory chanting, particularly directed towards USA goalkeeper Matt Turner during his goal-kicks, forced play to be halted in the 86th minute and twice during injury time.

The victory marks the United States’ third consecutive triumph in the Concacaf Nations League since its inception in 2019-20.
