The USMNT took on Mexico Wednesday night in an emotionally charged match that lived up to the rivalry of these two neighboring teams. The first half was all about US domination. Michael Bradley commanded the midfield with a great goal in the 15th minute and an assist to Wondolwski’s goal in the 28th minute. The first half ended “Dos a Cero” for the USMNT, but Mexico wasn’t about to go down that easily. Marquez scored a goal for Mexico 4 minutes into the second half, and Mexico tied up the game in the 67th minute with a goal from Alan Pulido. The last minutes of the game continued to thrill, as Eddie Johnson scored a goal in the 85th minute to put the US side ahead, but the goal was then called offside by the linesman. After some TV replays everyone could see that the linesman got the call wrong. But that’s just how it goes for the USMNT. Sometimes they just can’t seem to catch a break.
Other notable news: the men’s team was in the recently unveiled away kits for the first time. It seems like everyone has mixed opinions on this kit as well. However, we’ll take what we can get because I think this kit is a whole lot better than the golf shirt home jersey. Julian Green also made his debut for the USMNT.
