The U.S. men’s national team tore a sorry Mexico side to shreds as Christian Pulisic scored a brace and Ricardo Pepi added a third, leading the USA to a thorough 3-0 win over their rivals to reach the CONCACAF Nations League final against Canada on Sunday.
Yet in truth, that was only a small part of the final story of this match that was jam-packed with action, storylines, news, and most of all, complete mayhem.
The match became increasingly intense in the second half, with both Mexican and U.S. players displaying aggressive tackles and heated emotions. Unfortunately, the intensity led to several red cards being shown. Mexican players Cesar Montes and Gerardo Arteaga were sent off, while U.S. players Weston McKennie and Sergino Dest also received red cards. As a result, McKennie and Dest will face suspensions and be unavailable for the upcoming final on Sunday.
2-Fight 1 on 1 USA vs Mexico
The skill level of Dest was superb. The fans have tears of joy after this goal.
It was really a great match to watch! Best match ever with a lot of emotions.
