A nine-game unbeaten run dating from November of 2021 came to an end for the USMNT U-20 on Saturday night after a tough 2-1 loss against Mexico in the Revelations Cup.
And although it is always difficult to lose against your biggest rival, it is also hard not to recognize the fact that one of the Mexican goals was an absolute beauty.
Joshua Mancha free kick goal vs USMNT U-20
Mexico set the pace of the game at the beginning of the first half and built a 2-0 difference in less than 25 minutes, thanks to Christian Torres and Joshua Mancha.
Mancha's goal was particularly striking: a sensational 20-yard curled free kick that hit the net, creating a pleasant soccer ASMR moment.
Mhm, what a sound!
With Paxten Aaronson, Quinn Sullivan and Kevin Paredes on the field, the USMNT U-20 tried to fight back, but Diego Luna's goal from the penalty spot was not enough to avoid the defeat.
