Mexico and USA did battle (on the football pitch, not another struggle for Texas) and Mexico earned their place in the Confederations Cup with a 3-2 win in extra time. The game was tied 1-1 heading into the extra period after goals from Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez and Geoff Cameron. Oribe Peralta netted in extra time and Bobby Wood equalized only for Paul Aguilar to score the winner in the 118th minute.

The better team on the day won and the result was fitting. Mexico out possessed the Americans 63% to 37% and also out shot them 23-14.
