Bradley's stunning early goal helps US to 1-1 tie at Mexico

Bradley's stunning early goal helps US to 1-1 tie at Mexico

After all, they now jet off to Russian Federation to take part in the Confederations Cup, and remain the runaway Hex leaders, with little fear of stumbling on the road to the World Cup as they did so badly in the 2014 cycle.

There were multiple instances where the referees made some questionable calls that went for Mexico, especially when a Mexican player put an elbow to the face of two United States players in a span of five minutes early on. Only 17 minutes after Bradley's goal, a breakdown in defense between DeMarcus Beasley and Tim Ream saw Mexico's Carlos Vela dribble towards the eighteen and fire a low ball near post right past USA goalkeeper Brad Guzan. "My experience with the national team, this is critical", said Arena, who has more wins (74) than any coach in national team history.

Christian Pulisic - 5.5: Took some players on the dribble, and some other times looked very much like an 18-year-old. He said they had studied a lot of video of Mexico's movements and seen patterns in which Javier "Chicharito" Hernández comes back to the ball and one of Mexico's inside midfielders is looking to run through.

CONCACAF World Cup qualifying is past the halfway mark for both the United States and Mexico. With a win at home vs. Honduras, Panama would leap back ahead of the USA and into third place with nine points, one ahead of the Yanks and five points in front of the fifth-placed Catrachos.

With Mexico holding a six-point lead at the top, the odds of the Mexicans dropping out of first place are slim.

The United States is creeping, not surging, toward next summer's World Cup.

From there, it was classic park-the-bus from the US, as Mexico racked up 74% of possession.

Mexico leads the final round of the North and Central American and Caribbean region with 14 points, followed by Costa Rica and the United States with eight.

Apple's making an Amazon Echo competitor called 'HomePod'
Amazon has heavily dominated the field with its home speaker called Echo , which uses the digital assistant Alexa . Apple claims that the speaker can play a full rich mix of sounds that can fill up an entire room.

Both Panama and Costa Rica are at home on Tuesday, to Honduras, fifth, and Trinidad and Tobago, sixth, respectively.

Mexico was trying to sweep the Americans in a qualifying cycle for the first time 1972. I wanted to make sure I caught it right.

Mexico had a few half chances late on, and Pulisic was unable to put his shot from twenty yards on frame in the dying moments, one of the better opportunities for the Americans on the night. Powers like Germany, Argentina and Brazil play the same system no matter who they are playing.

Bradley's goal wasn't enough to give the USMNT a victory.

As Wood buried his head in his hands, Guillermo Ochoa saw an opening and rifled a throw toward midfield.

Arena used 20 of the 26 players on his roster in the last two qualifiers, changing seven starters because of the 7,820-foot altitude and the short recovery time. Many of us who love watching our national team play had lost a lot of hope. Mexico, in its current form, can confidently be expected to win its remaining home games, just as it won the two that preceded this.

The Americans stunned the 81,000 at Azteca, and all of us watching from afar, before even taking the field Sunday night when Bruce Arena unveiled a 3-4-3 formation with seven lineup changes from Thursday's triumph over Trinidad and Tobago. "For us to come down here and take a point, it's not the worst result in the world".
