U.S. soccer coach Jurgen Klinsmann has made one change to his lineup for the CONCACAF Gold Cup final against Panama on Sunday, starting Joe Corona in place of Jose Torres.

Corona did not play in Wednesday's semifinal against Honduras, but he has two goals in the tournament so far. He scored in the 5-1 victory over El Salvador in the quarterfinals and also in the 4-1 victory over Cuba in the group stage.

Panama coach Julio Dely Valdes left his lineup unchanged from his team's 2-1 upset of Mexico in the semifinals.

The Americans will not have Klinsmann on the sideline as they seek their fifth Gold Cup title. He is suspended for the game, the result of his tirade over officiating in the closing minutes of the semifinal.
