One of the many big events happening this summer in US Soccer. I imagine it will take second fiddle to the Confederations Cup, but we should still expect to win nonetheless. This does take place after the Confederations Cup, so it will be interesting to see how it affects the players' motivation.

We have been drawn in Group B with Grenada, Haiti, and Honduras, so we should advance without problems. Group A is Canada, Costa Rica, El Salvador and Jamaica while Group C is Guadeloupe, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Panama. So long as we get first place, we will face the third placed team from either Group A or C, which I imagine will be El Salvador or Guadeloupe (maybe Nicaragua).

No, because the Gold Cup happens every two years and the Confederations Cup every four. We are already in the 2009 Confederations Cup (which takes place before the 2009 Gold Cup) thanks to our win in the 2007 Gold Cup. The next Gold Cup will take place in 2011 and the winner of that will qualify for the 2013 Confederations Cup.
