In 1992 and 1999, the US Men’s National Team finished third, and in 2009, they finished runner-up. At the 2009 Confederations Cup, the United States reached their first intercontinental final. Spain was beaten 2–0 by the United States in the semifinals to advance to the finals. Following a 2–0 halftime lead, the United States lost the final 3–2 to Brazil.

Since 1924, the U.S. men’s soccer team has competed in the Summer Olympics. Olympic teams could only consist of amateurs and state-sponsored Eastern European players before 1980. Olympic teams from outside CONMEBOL & UEFA confederations were permitted to participate in 1984, making the Olympics a fully international tournament.

CONCACAF Gold Cup has been won by the United States seven times, most recently in 2021. In 1995 and 2016, they finished fourth at the Copa América.
