once again! Mexico loses in the final to the United States…

The Mexican team suffered from the dance of the Americans, whose 2-0 victory was enough to win their third title in the competition.

ARLINGTON, Texas – The United States' dominance over Mexico has persisted in recent years. The Stars and Stripes team is once again renaming itself the “Concacaf Giants” after defeating the Aztecs in the Nations League final 2-0 on Sunday and lifting its third title in the competition, without any of the “tricolors”.

Tyler Adams and Giovani Reyna's figure made Guillermo Ochoa look bad under the goal by becoming accomplices in both scores. Furthermore, Jaime Lozano's lack of reaction off the bench and low productivity on offense has the United States dancing at Dallas Cowboys Stadium.

During the first half, the Mexican national team was unable to produce the attack that was led by Hirving Lozano, Uriel Antuna and Henry Martin at the top. Eric “Chiquito” Sanchez was canceled out and Luis Chavez was not noticed as channels to advance in attack.

The course of the match was favorable to Gregg Berhalter's team, which had only to wait for a goal from Tyler Adams in the 45th minute, who, without supervision or pressure, shot a shot with his right foot from three-quarters of the field, with the complicity of Guillermo Ochoa, that he did not go to save a ball that went to the middle of the height. .

Mexico sought to achieve an equalizer during the first moments of the match, but the message from the bench did not arrive. The people at AT&T Stadium chanted “Santee, Santee,” but “Jimmy” didn't fit.

In the North American attack, their best player, Giovanni Reyna, put up the final numbers at 63; He scored after a series of rejections in the area with a low right shot against the post by Memo Ochoa to once again make him the scoring villain.

Mexico has not been able to overcome a 2-0 deficit since losing 4-2 to the United States in the 2011 Gold Cup final.

In the 73rd minute, there seemed to be a light on the way for the Mexicans, when a penalty kick was awarded for an alleged foul on Santiago Jiménez, but a VAR review overturned the original mark and left it yellow for 'Bebuti'.

The crowd in the building, mostly Mexican, chanted anti-gay chants between the 75th and 83rd minutes, so the central judge had to interrupt the match at least twice in the final half.

The scoreboard no longer moves and the United States has won the Nations League for the third time (2019-20, 2022-23 and 2023-24), while for Mexico, this trophy is still missing from its encounters as far as CONCACAF is concerned.

Although the “Tricolor” historically records 36 wins compared to 23 for the North American team, the United States played seven matches without losing against the Aztecs, with 5 wins and two draws.

It is worth noting that during the past five years, the Stars and Stripes team has done a “dance” with its Mexican counterpart.
