Monday, June 17th

Mexico vs United States
Jeonju --  (0-2)

Brad Friedel gets his first touch of the ball, in the second minute, as Mexico attack early.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 0-1
Brian McBride fired America ahead in their first real attack, after good work from Claudio Reyna on the right, in the 8th minute.

Mexico continued to pass the ball around well but couldn't get near enough to the American goal to put Brad Friedel under any real pressure.

Substitution
To try and open things up and get Jared Borgetti into the game more, Mexico's Luis Hernández replaced Ramón Morales in the 28th minute.

Brad Friedel held things together in the 35th minute by punching away one attack, as far as Cuauthémoc Blanco, and flapping away Blanco's return.

Two minutes later, Josh Wolff should have done better than drill the ball at Oscar Pérez; when he had a clear view of the goal.

Mexico's last wave of attacks came to nothing and they would have to rethink their strategy for the second-half.

Half-time: Mexico 0 -- United States 1

Mexico were lucky to get a free-kick n the 52nd minute, that Brad Friedel pushed onto the bar.

Mexico were putting America under sustained pressure and should have been awarded a penalty for handball, in the 55th minute.

Leading Goalscorers -- GOAL -- 0-2
Just as Mexico seemed to be getting back into the game, Landon Donovan headed in Eddie Lewis' perfect cross from the left, in the 65th minute.

A minute later, Luis Hernández was booked for diving in search of a penalty.

Eight yellow cards were handed out in this second half, bringing the total to ten yellow cards with five minutes still to play.
