It wasn’t the familiar 2-0 scoreline, but 3-0 sounds even better.

The U.S. Under-20 national team scored three first-half goals to topple Mexico, 3-0, in a friendly in Laredo, Texas on Friday night. University of Michigan forward Peri Marosevic scored a pair while New England Revolution midfielder Brandon Manzonelli added a pair of assists.

The Americans dominated the match in front of the mostly pro-Mexican crowd of 4,000 in attendance, holding Mexico without a shot on goal all game. The match had its requisite feistiness, with three red cards issued, including one to Manzonelli.

Not a bad way for Americans to start off the same weekend we will see SuperLiga kick off.
