The US tied 1-1 with Mexico last night in Jurgen Klinsmann’s first game in charge of the national team.
First impressions were not positive as the U.S. were dominated by Mexico in the first half. Klinsmann sent the U.S. out in a 4-2-3-1 formation, but the U.S. could do little offensively in the first half, failing to even get a shot on goal. Mexico dominated possession and had the U.S. chasing shadows for most of the first half.
As in the Gold Cup Final, Mexico attacked the U.S. down the wings, and Edgar Castillo and Jose Torres on the U.S. left had trouble containing Pablo Barrera.
