The US women’s national soccer team fell to a shock 2-0 defeat against Mexico in the group stages of the Concacaf Women’s Gold Cup on Monday, Feb. 26, stunning the soccer world.

Mexico’s Lizbeth Ovalle scored the opening goal in the 38th minute, capitalizing on a defensive error from Becky Sauerbrunn before finding the back of the net with a brilliant chip over Alyssa Naeher in the US goal.

In search of an equalizer, Kilgore substituted star striker Alex Morgan into the game at half-time, but the team couldn’t find a way to break down Mexico’s resilient defense.

Instead, Mexico put the icing on the cake with a brilliant goal in the final moments of the match, as Pelayo-Bernal launched a long-range effort into the top corner of the net.

It came after a fantastic, cross-field pass from Karen Luna but Pelayo-Bernal still had plenty to do herself.

Mexican headcoach Pedro López said he was proud of his players but added his side cannot be satisfied with just beating the US.

Despite its setback, the US still progresses to the quarterfinals of the tournament, after finishing second in Group A behind Mexico.
