Dos a Cero makes a comeback as the USMNT defeated Mexico 2-0 once again. Christian Pulisic scored a header on his first touch after coming on as a substitute, and Weston McKennie would double the lead ten minutes later. With the win they moved into a first place tie with Mexico, but ahead on goal differential.
The USMNT will play the 8th game of the Octagonal with their away match vs Jamaica on Tuesday. It will be streamed on Paramount+, and broadcast in Spanish on Universo at 3 PM MT. However, history warns us that Jamaica won’t be a pushover for the USA.
