Mexico vs. USA: US Takes an Early 1-0 Lead
U.S.'s Michael Bradley Nets First Goal in USA vs. Mexico
Mexico was dominating the early action of this game. Six minutes into it Mexico had controlled the ball for the majority of the matchand have fired off two shots to the U.S.'s none.
Then the U.S. got a corner kick. The kick was centered perfectly and Michael Bradley was able to get a head on it and find the net.
The man that centered the corner kick perfectly? Well, that would be Freddy Adu. The same Freddy Adu that was surprise insertion into the starting lineup by Bob Bradley.
While the U.S. has the early lead, Mexico is clearly the aggressor. They are controlling possession and getting plenty of shots on goal. Chicharito has already missed a pair of shots with one even bouncing off of the post.
The U.S. is going to have to keep much better tabs on him if they want to hold onto this lead. It also won't hurt if they increase their possession numbers.
