Mexico Defeated By The USA 0-2

Mexico team always had bad luck in the world cup qualifiers and the same thing went on this time where they lost against the USA. The match begins on a Friday night. It was not in Columbus this time but was held in Cincinnati and obviously, the building was changed this time. The change location seemed to have no effect on the Americans as they also won this time which resulted in gaining respect and fame as well as they were motivated for their next match.

Christian Pulisic was fit enough to come off the bench, and he was the spark needed, scoring from a header after 74 minutes. Weston McKennie, another of America’s European-based stars, then made it 2-0 when he coolly slotted home after a bit of luck in the 85th minute. The USA is now tied on points atop the ‘Octagonal’ group with Mexico while Canada is one point behind and still unbeaten through seven games. The top three will automatically head to Qatar while the fourth will have a last-chance playoff to get themselves in.
