Takeaways from USA-Mexico: More diamond

Jurgen Klinsmann implemented a new formation on Wednesday, and it was glorious. Meanwhile, Mexico's pecking order is a bit more obvious after the game.


Hatred returns to USA-Mexico

One of international soccer's best rivalries lost its fire for a year. That fire returned on Wednesday.


Tale of two halves in USA-Mexico draw

United States fans will likely be a bit disappointed about losing a 2-0 lead, but seeing as Wednesday's match against Mexico was a domestic-only, non-FIFA date friendly, Jurgen Klinsmann will deal just fine.


Mexico ties it up

Once again, we have to watch Mexico score on the United States and wonder what exactly Omar Gonzalez is doing.


Why is your hand up appealing for offside? He was a full three yards behind you when that shot was hit.


Marquez makes it 2-1

The United States was absolutely blasting Mexico until their defense fell apart on a corner, allowing Rafael Marquez to get free and score with a completely unopposed header. It's now 2-1 to the USA, and no one's singing 'dos a cero' anymore.


Mexico's pick play is almost certainly illegal and should have been spotted by the referee, but that's awful defending from Omar Gonzalez regardless. And unfortunately, these types of mistakes have become common for the LA Galaxy man.


Mexico can be described with this grumpy face


I'm right there with you guys,



Y'all, it's dos a cero. But this time, the United States have done it in less than 30 minutes, so it's kind of hard to believe that neither they or Mexico will be able to score another goal before the end of this game. Both teams have pretty nice attackers and kind of shaky defenses. But hey, while it lasts, DOS A CERO.


Chris Wondolowski was the scorer with one of his classic poacher's efforts, but plenty of credit should go to Michael Bradley, who recorded the assist, and Tony Beltran, who delivered the initial cross.

Bradley, by the way, has been by far the best player on the pitch for either team in the first 30 minutes.


Halfway to dos a cero

The United States lead Mexico after 15 minutes of their friendly, aided by a brilliant Graham Zusi corner and some pretty bad defending by Jesus Zavala. Incredibly, Bradley holds him off easily, winning a physical battle. Zavala is about 6'3" and almost certainly outweighs Bradley. Not that he wasn't already burned by the time the physical battle started.


Halfway to dos a cero, y'all.


Preview for USA-Mexico and how to watch

It's a domestic-only, non-FIFA date friendly, but it's still USA and Mexico. It'll get nasty.
