World Cup Qualifying: Mexico vs USA – Recap and Highlights

Mexico remained unbeaten but left fans frustrated as they came from behind to draw 1-1 with the United States on Sunday night.

The quick turnaround, with this game moved up due to Mexico’s upcoming participation in the Confederations Cup, resulted in a number of changes to both starting lineups. Nevertheless, the game started at a high intensity and there were a number of fouls in the opening minutes. Carlos Salcedo was perhaps lucky to remain on the field after nailing Bobby Wood with an elbow during a 3rd minute aerial challenge.

Then, in the 6th minute, Michael Bradley silenced the crowd in the Azteca when he won the ball in midfield, saw Memo Ochoa off his line, and chipped the keeper from distance to give the U.S. an extremely rare lead on Mexican soil.
