USA-MEXICO HISTORY
Having won the first meeting that took place in the 1934 FIFA World Cup, the USA has faced off with El Tri 69 times – far more than any international opponent. Though Mexico showed considerable dominance through the rivalry’s first 50 years, a new generation of U.S. players began to turn the tide during the 1990s, leading to the MNT’s own supremacy in the series, going 14-7-6 since the turn of the century.

The sides last met on July 7, a 1-0 victory for Mexico in the Final of the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup. The meeting prior to that came in a friendly last September in Nashville, a 1-0 shutout win for the United States. Tyler Adams scored his first international goal as part of the USA’s youngest lineup against Mexico in the modern era.
