Teenager Adams' goal gives USA 1-0 win over Mexico

There's no such thing as a "friendly" when the United States' and Mexico's men's soccer teams face off.

The United States came out on top in what proved to be a fiery game when Tyler Adams bagged his first goal for his country in the 70th minute.

Moments before, El Tri had been reduced to 10 men after Angel Zaldivar was sent off for a risky tackle on Wil Trapp. Zaldivar went for a slide tackle but instead put his studs into Trapp's right leg.

El Salvador barely mustered a chance as Brazil, led by Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar who played the entire 90 minutes, put on an excellent performance in front of their adoring American based fans in the usa capital.

At least nine nuclear facilities also lie in the storm's path, including Duke Energy's Brunswick nuclear plant in North Carolina. Brunswick Nuclear Plant and Shearon Harris Nuclear Plant are the closest to where the superstorm will strike, Green added.

Robinson galloped down the left wing into space and calmly picked out Adams, who had sprinted 40 yards to join the attack. The 19-year-old midfielder for the New York Red Bulls made a 35-yard run and smashed the ball at the penalty spot for his first global goal in his seventh game. El Tri lost 4-1 to Uruguay on Friday in Houston.

His actions prompted anger from Mexican players and a fracas ensued, in which an irate - and fellow over-6-footer - Edson Alvarez charged at Miazga, tapping his own head to remind the player there were bigger boys on the field.

In the 37th, Steffen denied Roberto Alvarado, who was unmarked after Diego Lainez made a run to the end line and sent the ball to the middle of the box.

The United States next play Colombia in Tampa on October 11 and Peru in East Hartford five days later.
