Here’s the lineup we’ll see the USMNT deploy against Mexico:

  1. Best game in any sport I’ve ever attended. My nerves are gone and my voice is gone. A beautiful reminder of why we subject ourselves to all this suffering. Sometimes it does end well!

  2. How can throwing all that trash on the field still happen in 2021? Pathetic. Good on the USA. Mexico made our backs look silly and are going to be dangerous for a long time. The rivalry is alive and well. Herrera looks like he’s 45.

    • Tim Ream played his final game im a US shirt. He was crazy overeat he’d as a left back. I understand that Dest has not played much defense recently either, Robinson is way more competent as a 1 v 1 defender than Ream in space. I can’t believe Mexico only got one goal off of Ream.

  3. smh Mckenzie is killing us. This was a really bad game for him. Horvath with a great block!! He is taking that MOTM from Mckennie

    • Yes, McKenzie had a poor outing today, but he’s young, even if he isn’t my “boy.” (I had hardly heard of him until he got a
      start or two.)

      Why not give players at least a little time to adapt? Who among you has never had one bad day?
      .
      All the more encouraging to see teammates step up to help, and to see Horvath have a fabulous day.
      .
      Yes, Miazga, and Berhalter, may now feel he could have done better, but it might have been harsh to sit McKenzie after a decent outing against Honduras.
      .
      20-20 hindsight, doubtful whether any of us couch critics could have done better out there under pressure, and for once it turned out all right in the end. Let’s be happy for them all.

      • I agree McKenzie had a bad night, but was not conpletely out match. Had one truly bone head play and a couple other poor plays. The penalty could have happened to anyone. McKenzie did have a few very good plays as well. Altogether,a bad game! Ream on the other hand, might as well have been a statue. Mexico could do anything the wanted on his side.

      • He had more then one bad play tonight. McKenzie turnover the ball 4 times out of the back. One he recovered real nicely. The other 3 just worked out in USA favor with one kick going way over Zach. Also the hand in the box

    • One thing I learned about tonight. We need Chris Richards really bad. Btw I agree not giving up on McKenzie, he’s still young but you guys are giving him way too many excuses tonight. He was very poor tonight. But its funny how you guys have no problems slamming Ream who played better then McKenzie. Which isn’t saying much

      • The kid is 20, dont give up on him. I said he had several bad plays, but only truly bonehead play. Richard’s need to been seen in a national team jersey more as well.

      • Its Mexican fans that are a disgrace, not the team. My wife and I no longer go to games because the Mexican fans throw stuff at all American fans, ask Gio how it feels. Its a disgrace that Concacaf and local police don’t step in to remove fans and/or make arrests. It is assault.

  4. Taking out Dest and Reyna with the formation changing has no favor Mexico. We can’t even hold the ball. Such a shame cause we had a good attack thru out the game. I just don’t get this Berkhalter.

  5. Weah pleads for handball call off Araujo in area, analysts: everybody saw it; Pitti didn’t … or outside area?

  6. Overtime …

    Yedlin hurt or cramping, McKennie possibly hurt … both still on …

    H. Herrera goes in studs up on a US ankle, somehow avoids obvious yellow despite all protests. (Announcers: did ref forget he was already on a yellow?)

    Horvath several good saves already *ulp* …

  7. 96′ .. into 7 added minutes, 3-minute additional stoppage for anti-discrimination protocol step 1 … commentators say they didn’t hear the offensive word, but it’s very loud, tempers heated …

  8. Mexican soccer, always and forever. I was going to praise Tata for having his team play without the classic Mexican machismo BS, but alas….

  9. our pressure d has caused plenty of problems for Mexico. in attack, so the chances are there. could get nasty if we can score first in the 2nd half. if Adams is ready, would be sweet to see him. Finally, in the 4st minute, Steffen whacked a long goal kick. Mexico won possession but we look best in our pressure d so whatever. our build out casues heart trouble but when we do break lines it’s on and we need to convert! Pulisic off his game so far but it just takes one moment. Gio playing his best defense, great to see. would love to see Josh get a goal on that far post where he is open often

  10. McKenzie is killing us. He has 2 really bad turnovers out of the back and we were lucky the 2nd one didn’t lead to a goal. We gotta pull him, he is not ready

    • Have McKenzie and Yedlin ever had the chance to play together? Mexico was pressing hard and fast from the outset. It’s a tough situation to play next to someone completely new. Not that it wasn’t catastrophic, but Miazga or anyone else could have played one bad early pass as well.

  11. Need some changes to start second, bring on Adams for acosta and yusah for yedlin move dest back to right side and go back to a 433. Yusah could help hold possession and unlock the top 3
