History repeats itself; USA ‘puts a dance’ on Mexico and is crowned in the Concacaf Nations League

Another dance put the Stars and Stripes team against its Mexican counterpart 2-0 in the grand final of the Concacaf Nations League in yet another edition of the most important classic between countries in the region.

Mexico sought to take revenge, to end the five-year negative streak without being able to beat its staunch Concacaf rival.

Those led by Jaime Lozano dedicated themselves to defending with very little productivity up front, neither the “Europeans” nor those from Liga MX could control the ball to harm goalkeeper Matt Turner.

In the first minutes the US team showed its superiority with dangerous plays, Guillermo Ochoa except the first attempt, in later plays the shots went over the crossbar.

Tyler Adams with a shot from outside the area opens the scoring second before ending the first half of the game.

In the second half, Mexico jumped onto the playing field asleep and in the 62nd minute Giovanni Reyna arrived to make it 2-0.

With Santiago Giménez on the playing field, the tone of the match did not change, the control of the ball was the American team that was closer to a third goal than one for the tricolor. In the 71st minute the whistler scored a penalty in favor of Mexico, but after a VAR review he reversed the call.

In the final stretch of the match, the homophobic shout appeared in the stadium, so the whistler suspended the match for a few seconds and, given the repetition, whistled the end.
