Mexico delivered a stunning upset in the W Gold Cup, defeating the U.S. women’s soccer team for only the second time in history. The match, held in California, showcased Mexico’s prowess as they scored a 2-0 victory over the four-time world champions.

In the first half, Lizbeth Ovalle made a remarkable lob from the edge of the box, leaving U.S. goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher and two defenders helpless. The goal set the tone for Mexico’s strong performance.

Mayra Pelayo-Bernal sealed Mexico’s victory with a sensational strike from outside the box in stoppage time, securing a historic win for the Mexican side. This marked only the second time Mexico has defeated the U.S. team in their 43 meetings.

The defeat in California highlighted the end of USWNT’s 80-match unbeaten streak against CONCACAF teams at home, and also marked the team’s first loss under interim coach Twila Kilgore.

Speaking after the match, U.S. forward Alex Morgan admitted that the team did not display their best performance. With only one shot on target out of eight attempts, the USWNT struggled to break through Mexico’s solid defense.

Defensive midfielder Sam Coffey echoed Morgan’s sentiments, describing the loss as ‘unacceptable’. Coffey emphasized the need for the team to regroup, learn from this defeat, and focus on their upcoming matches.

Following their victory, Mexico finished at the top of Group A in the W Gold Cup, while the United States secured a second-place finish. Both teams are set to advance to the knockout round, setting the stage for further exciting matchups in the tournament.
