Ratings after the tie against the United States

ESPNReading: 3 minutes.

ESPN presents the feedback Mexico’s players got after 90 minutes against the United States, which ended in a draw

The goalkeeper didn’t get much involved during the first half, as the USA took no shots on goal, however, an unorthodox outing that almost ended in a goal due to a Morris rebound is still to be remembered.

In the appendix, the goalkeeper spent most of the minutes calmly, but the duel was equalized in a counterattack, before playing in which he could not do much due to defensive mistakes that left him alone against Ferreira at the front of the small area.

The right wing witnessed the duel between the Mexican winger and Sergenio Dest, with whom he fought a fierce duel to control the area, for which he was prevented from appearing in the attack and contributing several crosses or partnering with Uriel Antona. In defence, as a winger, Araújo showed doubts about his positioning, turned over balls in midfield due to poor passing and remained in the way of play, such as the goal, in which he appeared nowhere to stop Morris.

As a right-sided centre-back, Reyes displayed an erratic image, due to the occasions when he lost the ball and wavered in his plots, which eventually ended up conceding a goal through a counter-attack, despite the zero chances it created. rival.

The defender demonstrated his inability to stop the USA attackers in the race and was responsible for losing both the duels he contested with Ferreira and Cowell. On the goal play, he simply saw the ball pass from Aidan Morris to Jesus Ferreira.

The center back did his job while the USA lay dormant for most of the match, however, he was left on screen after a poor pass from Morris to Ferreira that turned into a single goal.

Mexico’s most experienced defensive player put in an attacking display with drops down the left flank and a quick contest against DeAndre Yedlin, whose effort was reflected in an energetic sector looking for the opposition’s door.

The midfielder appeared to contain the inside lines of Santos, Acosta and Ferreira, distributed the balls with great vision to bring the team forward and allowed Chavez and Antona to do the same with the ball at their feet.

The right winger showed his speed time and time again to beat the marks of both Sands and Dest and capped off his performance with a goal in the 55th minute thanks to his most iconic trait.

Preceded by a safety zone error by the USA, as he intercepted a pass from Aaron Long in center field, Antona was left alone over midfield to run comfortably under Shawn Johnson and locate at the base of the near post with the right leg.

Starting in midfield and tasked with getting to the box, he has shown himself to be one of the most involved and diligent players to generate options. He also had time to try middle-distance shots on several occasions, although on this occasion he had no luck.

As No. 10 on the Mexican National Team, Vega took over the offensive machinery to spin plays and serve as a resource for Roberto de la Rosa. Despite being named for the second point, the striker made tireless sacrifices and raised his hand as a fine healer against the opposition. He came off in the 71st minute for Carlos Rodriguez.

Carlos Rodriguez (7)

Substituting for Alexis Vega in the 71st minute, he went behind the striker to play between the lines, and with ten minutes left on the field, came close to increasing the advantage of the match with a curling shot into the right corner, which, unfortunately for the Mexican team, became the counter-attack that the United States linked with the duel.
