USMNT establishes new record against Mexico national team

The United States men’s national team wanted to end a winless record at Estadio Azteca in World Cup qualifiers on Thursday night, but they failed to find the back of the net in two clear opportunities they had. Christian Pulisic missed a point-blank chance in the first half when his shot was hit straight at Guillermo Ochoa.

Then late in the second half, Gio Reyna cushioned the ball to Jordan Pefok inside the six-yard box and the USMNT striker completely missed the goal. The United States had the two clearest opportunities to break the deadlock, but they were not on point and had to settle for a draw at the end of the 90 minutes.

Historic streak for the USMNT

Even though the United States couldn’t walk out of Estadio Azteca with the three points, they remained undefeated against Mexico in four straight competitive games for the first time in history. It all started last year when the USMNT defeated El Tri in the final of the CONCACAF Nations League final.

A few weeks later, the team managed by Gregg Berhalter did it again, but in the final of the Gold Cup tournament, and then in November the United States defeated Mexico 2-0 in Columbus, Ohio in World Cup qualifying. After the result obtained on Thursday night, the USMNT only needs four points in two games, against Panama and Costa Rica, to secure a spot at Qatar 2022.
