The United States National Team surpasses the market value of the entire Mexican squad due to the extraordinary value of Christian Pulisic.
United States and Mexico have seen significant growth in their football over the past decades, creating a famous rivalry between them that sees them fighting every two years to be the 'CONCACAF Giants,' and despite Mexico still leading the tournament with ten titles (seven since it has been called the Gold Cup), USA is chasing closely with six.
Going on economics, the Gold Cup 2019 edition should see a close tournament since the value of both squads are fairly close. However, this time round it's the US men's national team, according to transfermkt, which is worth more: the Stars and Stripes side surpassing Mexico by almost nine million euros in value.
The US team market value is around 137.45 million euros while the Mexican National team is worth a total of 128.70 million, with its most expensive player being Raúl Jiménez who plays for Wolverhampton worth 25 million euros.

However, the big difference between USA and Mexico is due to one player's market value, Christian Pulisic, Chelsea's new shining star arrived with the 'Blues' in a record transfer fee of 60 million, the third most expensive signing in club's history, costing almost half of what the US squad is worth.
Mexico's absences like Carlos Vela, 'Tecatito' Corona, 'Chicharito' Hernández, Hirving Lozano, and Héctor Herrera have lowered El Tri market value, as 'Chucky' Lozano is currently the most expensive player on the Mexican team, with a market value of 40 million euros.
