Mexico lost to the United States in the Estadio Azteca for the first time in history.

El Tri had a better first half, but had several misses from Javier Hernández.

Tom Howard's superb performance and Michael Orozco-Fiscal's goal were enough for the States to leave with a 1-0 victory.

This was the ninth time Mexico lost at the Azteca and it happened just four days after the under-23 team grabbed their first Olympic gold medal in football.

Klinsmann said before the game (via Goal.com): "We want to measure ourselves with Mexico. And we respect what they’ve done but we’re coming here to win. We’re not coming here to defend, we’re coming here to win."

So let's take a look to the key battles of the game.
