USA Defeated by Mexico in a Friendly Match


Proud rights were maintained by Mexico over the US as they thrashed them 3-0 in a friendly match held in New Jersey. Only one strike was needed by Jonathon Dos Santos from the Mexican football team when both the teams met each other at the final match of the Gold Cup. But it is far better to see the teams playing in this friendly match. Hernandez, the striker from Sevilla went off the ground in the first half. Uriel Antuna and Erick Gutierrez came to the field as replacements. It should be mentioned that both of them did a great job to get the deserved victory for the team.

Christian Pulisis is considered to be the brightest player of USA. He avoided the chance of converting a late penalty and the young player, Joshua Sargent, who plays for the forward position in the team, was not able to convert the pass to Jonathon Orozco too. Sergio Dest played the match for the USA as a debutant at the left-back position. He forced the goalkeeper to get involved into the very first real save of the game by his effort of putting the ball into a long-range. It was quite threatening but it was saved at the last moment.

It was necessary for Mexico to extend the margin just before half time. But Corona, the winger from club Porto did not succeed to punish the turnover for the defense. He had dragged a shot wide from the far post that followed a counter-attack that was quick to make and Hirving Lozano, who came as a substitute to the match did a similar thing during the 71stminute of the game.

Both the USA and Mexico will return to action. While the United States will be playing against Uruguay, Mexico will face Argentina as their opponent on the other hand.
