2024 CONCACAF Women’s Gold Cup hosts USA are through to the quarter-finals before a group decider with Mexico.

While Argentina held Mexico to a goalless Group A draw and lost 4-0 to the USA – Jaedyn Shaw bagging a brace, Alex Morgan and Lindsey Horan one apiece – the US put five past Dominican Republic, who conceded eight to the Mexicans.

The top four teams from CONMEBOL’s 2022 Copa América Femenina were confirmed as guests for the tournament.

Puerto Rica have three points on the board after coming from behind to beat Panama 2-1, Danielle Marcano grabbing a stoppage-time winner.
