What The World Looked Like The Last Time The USMNT Beat Mexico

The U.S. men's national team defeated Mexico in a highly contested match on Sunday to win the CONCACAF Nations League, marking the country’s first competitive victory over its rivals since September 10th, 2013.

The fruitless streak continued so long that I personally graduated middle school, high school and was just one year away from graduating college before the U.S. was victorious again. Christian Pulisic, the American captain who scored the go-ahead goal, was just 14 years old when the U.S. last claimed victory. 

Mexico's Bottle-Throwing Shenanigans Are Nothing New, But The Instant Karma Never Gets Old

If there's one takeaway from last night's CONCACAF Nations League final, it's that the USMNT vs. Mexico rivalry is alive and well.

The first competitive match between the North American rivals since the 2019 Gold Cup Final had everything: late equalizers, abundant yellow cards, penalties, missed penalties, VAR controversy, on-field scuffles and inexplicably long periods of injury.

El Final Feliz Fue Hollywoodense Y No De Telenovela: Estados Unidos Venció Al Tri En La Nations League

Estados Unidos se coronó campeón de la Nations League de la Concacaf, luego de vencer a México por 3-2, en un partido que fue un verdadero remolino de emociones.

Hubo goles, múltiples llegadas a los pórticos, amagues de batallas campales, VAR, prórroga y hasta un penal perdido en el minuto 123.

Pulisic’s Controversial Extra Time Penalty Decides USMNT-Mexico Instant Classic

A sensational, helter skelter Concacaf Nations League final between the USMNT and Mexico in Denver, Colorado, was ultimately won 3-2 by the home nation after a 120-minute match that included sensational moments of play, godawful refereeing, raucous fan behavior, five goals and a backup goalkeeper making a decisive penalty save at the death. 

15 Years Ago, The USMNT Was Ranked No. 4 In The World — Is The Current Team Better?

It’s easy to forget given the pathetic showing that followed, but the U.S. men’s national team entered the 2006 World Cup as one of the top-ranked teams in the world. The USMNT reached a No. 4 FIFA ranking in April 2006, though that fell slightly to No. 5 by the time the World Cup rolled around in Germany. 

To this day, the No. 4 ranking remains the highest the USMNT has ever reached. After the 2006 World Cup, which included two defeats and a draw, the U.S. plummeted to No. 31 and has been stuck around No. 20 (plus or minus 10) in the decade-and-a-half since. 

What Would You Ask Pulisic If You Had One Question? Well, Here’s What My Goofy Ass Asked

Imagine you get to ask the first American male to win the UEFA Champions League one singular question. What would you ask? Christian Pulisic is sitting there on the other end of the Zoom call staring into your soul awaiting your question. The pressure is on.

This was the situation I found myself in on Wednesday. Concacaf was kind enough to give me — an aspiring 22-year-old sports media graduate who just finished college last month — media accreditation to attend Nations League press conferences and the semifinal matches.

Pulisic Ready To Ditch Super-Sub Role On Thursday In Return To USMNT

Fresh off his contributions in the UEFA Champions League final, Christian Pulisic is expected to start Thursday when the United States men's national team faces Honduras in a CONCACAF Nations League semifinal in Denver.

Pulisic came on as a substitute in the 66th minute of Chelsea's 1-0 victory over Manchester City in Porto, Portugal. In a prime scoring chance, Pulisic had a shot that went just wide of the left post with an opportunity to give Chelsea a two-goal lead.

Esta Copa Es Tuya N'Golo: Chelsea Es El Campeón De La Champions League

Hay un dicho anónimo que dice que un 71 por ciento de la Tierra está cubierta por agua y que el 29 restante lo cubre N'Golo Kanté. El futbolista francés es una máquina, pese a su 168 cm. de estatura. Su humildad y su alegría, además, lo han convertido en un jugador de culto y que merece más que nadie el título de la Champions League que el Chelsea acaba de levantar. Los londinenses obtuvieron la segunda Orejona de su historia, luego de vencer por 1-0 al Manchester City.
