The United States lost to Serbia with a score of 1-2 in a game marked by the expectation of the debut of Alejandro Zendejas with the United States National Team shirt at the BMO Stadium in Los Angeles. A match in which it also marked the debut of Team USA after being eliminated at the hands of the Netherlands in the round of 16 of the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
The same way Gregg Berhalter would not be on the bench of the Stars and Stripes team for an investigation into a case of physical violence in 1991, in his place was Anthony Hudson. The first part was very good for the US team, with a young team, mostly MLS players.
At minute 29, Brandon Vázquez, one of the Mexicans at the service of the United States, opened the scoring and he showed that there is a goal-scoring nose that can contribute a lot to this team. The FC Cincinnati footballer would have a great first half, like Cade Cowell, both could represent Mexico.
At minute 43 of the first half, Luka Ilić scored the equalizer for the Serbian team And so the first half would end.
It is also worth noting the good performance of goalkeeper Gabriel Slonina, who at 18 years old became the youngest goalkeeper in the history of the United States to debut with the first team.
An error in the American defense allows Veljko Simić to put the second score on the scoreboard for the Serbs who passed it to win 2-1.
The United States tried but nevertheless failed to match the actions, it is worth noting the debut of the youngest and especially Cade Cowell, another eligible for Mexico who showed a lot of talent and left two crashed balls off the crossbar.
The next game for the United States will be on Saturday, January 28, where they will face off against their counterpart from Colombia.
