USA Beats Long-Time Soccer Rival Mexico 1-0
The U.S. men's national team beat its rival Mexico on Tuesday in Nashville in a friendly as both nations used young squads. It was a Tyler Adams second-half goal that gave the Americans the victory over their rival, who they failed to beat in the last round of World Cup qualifying. The first half didn't offer much, but things quickly got going in the second half.
It's a great win for the U.S. They get a nice win over its rival and create some really positive vibes in the process. Neither team was near its full strength of players with guys like Christian Pulisic, Jozy Altidore, Andres Guardado and Carlos Vela missing, but anytime you can beat your rival, it's a good thing.
The U.S. continues playing friendlies next month against Colombia and Peru.
