Mexico Vs. USA 2012: Michael Orozco Fiscal Scores, USMNT Up 1-0

The United States has a 1-0 lead on Mexico at Estadio Azteca in the 80th minute. They have had leads against Mexico in Mexico before, but this is pretty incredible stuff. It's been a rather dull contest, but a couple of substitutions by Jurgen Klinsmann have brought the game to life.

Brek Shea and Michael Orozco Fiscal came into the game int he 78th minute, and it took them less than two minutes to create a goal. Shea started the move by running into the box down the left side and putting a low ball into the center, to the feet of Terrence Boyd. The USMNT striker poked a backheel towards the goal and Orozco Fiscal made the perfect back post run, then applied the easy finish.

There are a few interesting things to note here. First, talk about clownshoes defending by Mexico. This is some pretty woeful stuff. How Boyd's backheel gets through is anyone's guess, as is wherever the heck Orozco Fiscal came from. Andres Guardado was probably supposed to be tracking him. Also, the scorer of the goal was Michael freaking Orozco Fiscal. Like, not good enough to play for the very poor Philadelphia Union Michael Orozco Fiscal. Wow. Wow wow wow. This is the guy who scored the goal to give the United States their latest ever lead at Azteca. Incredible.
