Michael Bradley scores all-time great goal against Mexico

Well, it looks to have helped early in the match, as American midfielder Michael Bradley got the United States on the board with a brilliant chip shot goal from so far out.

When taking the historic nature of the rivalry and looking at this game in isolation, the U.S.is firmly back on track in World Cup qualifying.

Of course, climbing from last to third in the final round of World Cup qualifying has eased pressure immensely.

With a mix of regulars and secondary players, the US team will regroup late this month ahead of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, a regional championship with no bearing on World Cup qualifying.

Three minutes later, Bradley returned the favor with a booming shot from 35 yards that banged off the right goalpost.

The goals by Maradona and Negrete are commemorated with plaques at Azteca Stadium.

By "them", we mean Michael Bradley.

Bradley's exquisite goal rattled Mexico, who struggled to keep possession as the Americans managed to dictate play and keep the Azteca supporters quiet. The U.S. held Mexico to 0-0 in qualifiers at Azteca in 1997 and 2013. Yeah, Guillermo Ochoa was out of position, but the pacing and positioning of Bradley's shot was flawless.

The FC Dallas man broke up more than his fair share of Mexico attacks through the middle of the park and was a physical presence throughout the match. And from the Netherlands, where Bradley spent two seasons with Heerenveen, it was described as world-class, delicious and wonderful. Only 17 minutes after Bradley's goal, a breakdown in defense between DeMarcus Beasley and Tim Ream saw Mexico's Carlos Vela dribble towards the eighteen and fire a low ball near post right past us goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

"When Trump was elected, I only hoped that the President Trump would be different than the campaigner Trump. It's true the team had more of the ball but the people want to see their team win".

Attempting to volley a bouncing ball off that found it's way to his midfield position, the American captain made an absolutely brilliant strike that got around the keeper but finished its journey at the right post rather than the back of the net. "We were close, I'm proud of the result, but I am a little greedy". With Jermaine Jones at age 35, the 21-year-old Acosta may very well be the future of the United States midfield. "I felt like I was able to read what he wanted to do and step in". So even before Chicharito tapped the ball toward Hector Herrera, Bradley stepped up.

"You know that obviously he's a very good goalkeeper". But one that caught me totally off guard.

How Bradley read the play, how effectively and smoothly he moved, and how skillfully he shot. led to the 1.8 seconds that the ball soared while you watched wondering whether it could actually land in the goal. "I think we played well". "Any time you can get a point here it's great". "It was able to take a lot of pressure off the game, especially what a attractive goal he scored". It was an important point for Bruce Arena and his team as the Americans seek to qualify for the World Cup next summer in Russian Federation.

Pulisic made his global debut 15 months ago and has seven goals and five assists in 15 appearances, including four goals and three assists in his last four contests.
