This was head coach Gregg Berhalter’s third straight win over El Tri, following titles in the Concacaf Gold Cup and Nations League finals this summer.
Timothy Weah sliced a ball in front of goal where Pulisic, just five minutes after entering the match, crashed in to put a glancing header past Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa.
Westin McKennie doubled the lead and ignited “Dos a Cero” chants throughout the red-white-and-blue crowd by taking an attempted pass that deflected back to him off a Mexican defender and coolly finishing inside the far post.
Mexico had the best two chances of the opening half, but Zack Steffen dove to his left to deny Hirving Lozano, who was deftly played behind the US defense in the 18th minute. At the half-hour mark, Jesus Corona received a Lozano service but bounced his volley wide of the post.

USMNT forward Tim Weah scored his second international goal – and first since 2018 – to put the U.S. ahead, but Jamaica striker Michail Antonio scored on a world-class effort from distance to level halfway through the first half.
