Canada win hints at steep learning curve ahead for Gregg Berhalter's USMNT

Positives were hard to find in the United States men's national team's 1-0 Gold Cup victory over Canada on Sunday.

The win in the group stage finale meant the U.S. secured the top spot in Group B with a perfect 3-0-0 record. Practically speaking, and depending on results later on Sunday, it means the U.S. will likely avoid a matchup with Mexico prior to the final on Aug. 2.

But the Americans have to get there first, and based on Sunday's performance against their neighbors to the north, that is by no means a foregone conclusion.
