The U.S. men’s national team will meet its greatest foe for a spot in the Concacaf Nations League Final later this summer.
Mexico will oppose the USMNT in June 15th’s semifinal round following the conclusion of group stage action on Tuesday night. The competitive showdown at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will come just two months after El Tri and the Americans clash in the first-ever Continental Clasico on April 19.
The Concacaf Nations League Final is set for June 18.
The USMNT claimed top spot in the Final Four after finishing with 10 points in four group stage matches. Anthony Hudson’s squad are reigning champions after the Americans defeated Mexico 3-2 in the 2021 final.
Mexico topped Group A with eight points despite winning only two of its four group stage matches. A 2-2 draw with Jamaica was all Diego Cocca’s squad needed to edge the Reggae Boyz to top spot.
Panama and Canada will meet in the other semifinal matchup after winning their respective groups on Tuesday. Panama’s 1-0 victory over Costa Rica clinched top spot in Group B following Jose Figardo’s second-half winning goal for the visitors.
Canada routed Honduras 4-1 at BMO Field to claim top spot in Group C. Cyle Larin set the tone with a three-minute brace in the first half while Jonathan David and Jonathan Osorio added second-half goals of their own.
