The only goal of the game came deep in extra time. Miles Robinson was the scorer. Álvarez played 117 minutes, narrowly missing out on adding a second Gold Cup trophy to his cabinet.

He ws also a starter for the matches in the quarterfinals against Honduras and in the semifinals against Canada. After a short vacation, Álvarez will rejoin Ajax.
