USMNT get vital point at the Estadio Azteca against Mexico

The U.S. Men's National Team meets Mexico in a World Cup qualifying match at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico, on Sunday, June 11, 2017 (6/11/17).

7 - Number of games the U.S. MNT has gone unbeaten since Bruce Arena took over. But in the context of history, it's a brilliant result.

US midfielder Christian Pulisic, front, jumps over Trinidad & Tobago forward Kenwyne Jones while pursuing the ball during the first half of a World Cup soccer qualifying match Thursday, June 8, 2017, in Commerce City, Colo. With a combination of young stars and experienced veterans who have seen all sides of World Cup play, it's a team that could do something special on soccer's biggest stage. Most importantly, the USA have earned eight points from four qualifiers in the hexagonal stage of World Cup Qualifying since Arena took over - they're now third in the table behind the likes of Mexico and Costa Rica. It's a significant boost for the USMNT on its quest to qualify for Russian Federation 2018.

Vela's goal was a decent finish, but it doesn't have a patch on Bradley's effort. If the Canaleros prevail at home, they will leapfrog the Americans and, for the moment, move into the region's third and final automatic qualifying slot.

Most folks have described this goal as a chip, but that does it a disservice. Pulisic picked up the ball, and with two touches, worked his was into the middle of the field, but his curling attempt was always wide, as he wasn't able to properly position himself to get a shot on target. The former Aston Villa, Chievo and Roma midfielder, who is also the son of former U.S. and Swansea coach Bob, scored a phenomenal lob over goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa just six minutes into the match to silence the home faithful.

"After 15 minutes of an interview that was centered around soccer and our national team, he asked me about my thoughts on President Trump's ban of Muslims".

It took just seven minutes for the visiting side to score a simply sensation goal. But Mexico might not be too bothered by this one.

Michael Paramasivan said he was watching TV in the building as his girlfriend and daughter slept when he smelled burning plastic. Ambulances and fire trucks filled the streets around the building, which is located in a diverse, working class area of London .

However, it took Mexico only 15 minutes to to equalise, as Carlos Vela finished off a counterattack with a fine finish.

So now the U.S.is back on its feet with a clear head after sustaining a couple of early knockdowns. We needed the three points, " said Jozy Altidore, who had the assist on Pulisic's second goal.

Miguel Herrera, Osorio's predecessor, was working as a pundit for Univisión Deportes for the evening and commented on the fact that this should be a warning sign for El Tri.

Arena invited 27 players to camp.

But before they go up against Panama, they will play Costa Rica at home and Honduras away in September. "So probably not. I probably won't be a part of the 3-on-3 matchup". Four years ago El Tri were in shambles, chaotically shuffling through a trio of coaches - Jose Manuel de la Torre, Luis Fernando Tena and Victor Manuel Vucetich - before Miguel Herrera managed to right the ship after the famous lifeline from the U.S. That was his undoing. But Arena promised pragmatism when he came in and he delivered it in its highest form here.

Bradley scored a stunning goal as the United States held "Hexagonal" leaders and rivals Mexico to a 1-1 draw at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. The USMNT is back where it should be, maybe even a little better.
