USA beat Mexico 2-0 to complete Concacaf Nations League three-peat


Tyler Adams and Gio Reyna each struck for goals to help the United States complete a Concacaf Nations League three-peat in a 2-0 victory against Mexico in the Final of 2023-24 Concacaf Nations League Finals on Sunday night at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Adams scored right before halftime with a wondergoal from long-distance, while Reyna fired in a strike midway through the second half to account for the night’s scoring.

The U.S. have now won all three editions of the Concacaf Nations League, having defeated their long-time rivals for the second time in the final, the first occasion being 2021.

A scintillating environment greeted the two teams and the intensity started from the beginning, with Christian Pulisic getting denied by Mexico GK Guillermo Ochoa in 5’.

Mexico countered by applying more pressure in the U.S. half and one of the best chances of the first half came for the Mexicans in the 22’ when a flicked-on header reached the feet of Luis Chavez, who sent a shot straight to U.S. GK Matt Turner.

The U.S. started to try their luck from distance and some fancy moves from Sergino Dest set up a shot that sailed just over the crossbar in the 38’.

The next attempt, though, from long-range could not have been better, as Tyler Adams hammered a right-footed shot into the top left side of net from 35 yards out to hand the U.S. a 1-0 lead right before halftime.

Mexico looked to respond to start the second half, but it was tough sledding against a resolute U.S. defense.

Instead, the U.S. asserted their control more in the 63’ when an initial clearance from the Mexican defense fell to Gio Reyna, who fired into net at the near post past Guillermo Ochoa for a 2-0 U.S. advantage.

As time continued to tick away, Mexico committed more numbers forward and increased the pressure in search of a goal, but the U.S. defense never wavered and confidently saw things out until the final whistle to earn the crown once again. (Concacaf)
