WATCH: Chicharito, Cameron trade early CONCACAF Cup goals
The United States and Mexico are already promising a thriller through a half hour of play at the Rose Bowl.
Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez opened up the scoring by opening up a dicey U.S. back line to give Mexico an early lead, but Michael Bradley and Geoff Cameron teamed up to level things soon after.
The winner of Saturday’s match goes to the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia.Hernandez struck first, as Matt Besler risked too much and Fabian Johnson risked too little in a porous bit of defense.
