GC is the number of Gold Cups played in.

After 2009, we can see that Costa Rica has overtaken Canada for third on goal difference. However, they've played six more games. Guadeloupe is already 14th and has more wins than Guatemala. Grenada's zero points and -10 GD is the worst single performance in tournament history. You could also make a case for St. Vincent in 1996, who had zero points and a -8 GD in only two games.

Mexico won the tournament without losing a game, but every winner has been undefeated. The only teams to have a 100% record are 1996 Mexico, 1998 Mexico, and 2007 USA. This year's Mexico squad did score 15 goals, second all time for a single tournament. The record belongs to 1993 Mexico with 28 (and only 2 against), which is unlikely to be broken any time soon.

Despite their disappointing loss in the final, the USA did break Mexico's record Gold Cup unbeaten streak. Mexico went 16 games undefeated from 1991-2000, but the USA bested them with 18 straight. The streak started in the 2003 third place game and lasted through the 2009 semifinal.

The record winless streak is held by Guatemala at 15 games (1996-2007).

Donovan should be able to overtake Zague/Zaguinho/Alves/whatever if he plays in the next edition. Zaguinho scored 12 goals in the 1993 tournament, including 7 in one game versus Martinique. Centeno scored a goal in this year's Gold Cup, reaching third place.

Also: the 500th goal in tournament history was scored this year. It took place in the group stage when Mexico played Panama. The opener, by eventual golden boot winner Miguel Sabah of Mexico in the 10th minute, was the milestone goal.

This summer’s Gold Cup will be played in 13 venues across the US, including four MLS stadiums.
Eight-time winners Mexico won the last edition of the Gold Cup in 2009 with a 5-0 victory over the US in the final. Mexico and the US have met four times in the final, with the Mexicans holding a 3-1 edge.
2007 Champions the United States look to impress at the Gold Cup following their strong showing at World Cup 2010 in South Africa.
All three CONCACAF World Cup teams, United States, Mexico and Honduras, will participate in the tournament along with quality challengers Jamaica, Costa Rica and Canada.
