Team USA beat Trinidad and Tobago in their latest World Cup Qualifier on Thursday night 2-0. This result, combined with Mexico’s win and a draw between Panama and Costa Rica, moved the US into 3rd place in the Hex standings. Christian Pulisic had both goals for the U.S., and is continuing to build his legend despite still being only 18. Darlington Nagbe was also a standout performer for the U.S., and fullbacks Jorge Villafana and DeAndre Yedlin also acquitted themselves well in the game. The U.S. now takes on Mexico on Sunday at the Azteca. The U.S. has not won a single World Cup qualifier at the Azteca, but they have gotten a result the last two times they played there, a 1-0 friendly win in 2012, and a 0-0 draw in qualifying in 2013.
