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

Mexican fans at Allegiant Stadium made headlines during the match due to their repeated homophobic chants, which caused the game to be paused twice. Unfortunately, the chants persisted, leading the referee to prematurely end the match during stoppage time. The incident has drawn attention and CONCACAF will have the responsibility of addressing and resolving the situation.
Adding to the eventful match, it was widely reported that Gregg Berhalter would continue as the head coach of the U.S. national team, coinciding with the start of the game.

The skill level of Dest was superb. The fans have tears of joy after this goal.



In the match against Mexico, the United States showcased their superiority and talent over their opponents. According to Sporting News senior writer Mike DeCourcy, the U.S. team is on the verge of surpassing Mexico as the most talented team in CONCACAF, and this game highlighted that potential shift.
While Christian Pulisic had a significant impact on the match, other players such as Gio Reyna, Chris Richards, Tim Weah, Weston McKennie, Antonee Robinson, and even Folarin Balogun stood out and outperformed their Mexican counterparts.
In comparison, Mexico struggled to match the talent and depth of the U.S. team. It appears that Mexico has not effectively replaced their aging players and lacks the same level of exciting young talent that U.S. fans are currently enjoying. As a result, this defeat was comprehensive for El Tri, and while the media might place blame on Diego Cocca, the reality is that the talent pool at his disposal is not as extensive.

It was really a great match to watch! Best match ever with a lot of emotions.
