Jozy Altidore and Bobby Wood combine for USMNT equalizer against Mexico

The USMNT struggled in the first half, but thanks to Bobby Wood, they're back in it against El Tri.

After a very poor first half, the United States needed to start the second quickly against Mexico. They did just that, with Bobby Wood finding the back of the net to level the score up at 1-1.

This is exactly what you want from a striker partnership. Jozy Altidore comes to get the ball, holds it up, waits for Wood to make a run and plays a perfect pass. Wood surges forward, picks his spot and hits a composed finish. And it couldn't have come at a better time for the USMNT.
