No fue una buena noche la de ayer para Josué Duverger, arquero de Haití. Su selección perdió 3-0 ante Canadá, en un duelo que definía un cupo para el octagonal final de la Concacaf rumbo a Catar 2022, y una parte importante de la derrota recayó en sus hombros. O más bien, en sus confundidos pies.
Duverger fue fundamental para mantener su arco cerrado en el primer tiempo.
Sin embargo, apenas se reinició el complemento, el golero se vio envuelto en un blooper que hoy se repite en pantallas de todo el mundo.
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.
A fan who threw an object on to the field and injured United States men's soccer player Giovanni Reyna has been arrested and banned for life from Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, the scene of Sunday's CONCACAF Nations League final between the U.S. and Mexico.
Stadium Management Co., which operates the venue, made the announcement Monday night. The U.S. won Sunday's game 3-2 in extra time.
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.
Sunday night’s Concacaf Nations League final between the United States and Mexico was the craziest game I have ever seen. Period.
The game had everything on and off the field, including a fan parkouring off the Paramount+ set to evade security. The fact that a fan taking a plunge into the stands from the broadcast booth isn’t big news goes to show how nutty this Concacaf classic was.
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.
The story of the Reyna family is well-known on the pitch. Claudio excelled for the USMNT, winning 112 caps and playing at three World Cups, and his 18-year-old son Gio has already shown early signs of usurping his genius.
On Sunday evening, Gio scored his third senior U.S. goal in only his seventh appearance. It was his first competitive goal for the USMNT, serving as a 27th minute equalizer against Mexico in the Concacaf Nations League final.
