USA manager Juergen Klinsmann insists his side are "ready" to take on Panama in Sunday's CONCACAF Gold Cup final.
Klinsmann will lead his team out in the competition's showpiece with his side having put in a string of impressive performances so far.
They have won all five of their games, scoring 19 goals and conceding just four times to reach their fifth successive Gold Cup final.
Unsurprisingly, the USA are the top scorers in the competition with Chris Wondolowski and Landon Donovan joint first in the player stats along with Panama's Manuel Gabriel Torres
Klinsmann is delighted with his side's lethal form but is expecting a tough challenge from Julio Dely Valdes' side.
"It's going to be a nail-biter, it's going to be very tough and we're all prepared for that. I think the team can be proud of what they've done so far in this tournament," the 48-year-old said.
"The type of football that they've shown, the tempo they've played. But we are ready for it.
"We are very hungry for this Gold Cup and that's the way the players prove themselves on the field and also off the field when we are in camp."
Panama do not have a 100 per cent record in the competition, having been held 0-0 by Canada in the group stages but still boast some impressive form.
Thanks in part to Torres' five goals, they topped group A before hammering Cuba 6-1 in the quarter-finals.
They then beat holders Mexico for the second time in the competition to book a place in the final as they attempt to win their first Gold Cup.
Should the USA win on Sunday, it would be their fifth success, although Klinsmann may end up missing the match.
CONCACAF are yet to decide on a punishment after the German threw a ball in anger during the semi-final against Honduras following what he felt was persistent fouling of his players.
