Mexico vs USA: Mexico Takes Command 4-2 as Tempers Rise
Mexico vs USA Nears the Finish with Mexico Leading 4-2
Mexico has now scored four unanswered goals to take a commanding 4-2 lead. Giovani Dos Santos had the ball on the right back corner of the goalkeepers box as Tim Howard came out and tried to take the ball from him, but Dos Santos eluded him and two U.S. defenders.
He then lofted a beautiful chip shot to the back upper left corner of the goal. The U.S. had a defender back, and he jumped as high as he could to try and head the ball away, but he missed by inches. And now it is 4-2 Mexico in the 80th minute.
The came is not over yet.
The U.S. came attacking back and Michael Bradley had a one touch with the goalkeeper out of position, but his off foot shot curved just wide left.
Tempers are also beginning to flare. With the rivals locked in a tight 3-2 battle Jermaine Jones was called for a soft foul on Jose Torres.
Some pushing, shoving and yelling ensued. The Americans are quickly running out of time, however, and if they are going to mount a come back they are going to have to do it quickly.
