United's two representatives at the CONCACAF Gold Cup - Santino Quaranta for the U.S. and Dejan Jakovic for Canada - have both moved on to the knockout stage of the tournament following this past weekend's results. 

Canada finished atop Group A with a 2-0-1 record, with Jakovic starting and playing 90 minutes in each of the first two games. The big centerback was rested during the team's 2-2 draw with Costa Rica on Saturday. 

The U.S. finished at the head of Group B with a 2-0-1 record. After scoring his first career goal for the USMNT last Wednesday at RFK, Quaranta started and played 63 minutes in the U.S.'s 2-2 draw with Haiti on Saturday.

Both the U.S. and Canada have made their way to Philadelphia for the quarterfinal round, with both teams set to play at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday. First, Canada will take on Honduras at 5 p.m. (Univision) and then The U.S. will follow with its game against Panama (8 p.m. ET, Fox Soccer Channel, Telefutura). Should both teams advance, they would face each other on July 23 in Chicago.
