The United States came out on top in what proved to be a fiery game when Tyler Adams bagged his first goal for his country in the 70th minute.

"He keeps getting better".

Zaldivar's challenge came shortly after tempers flared between the two North American rivals, as US defender Matt Miazga kicked off a kerfuffle by mocking the height of Diego Lainez.

When the two squared up, 6 ft 4 inch Miazga took the opportunity to point out the size difference between him and Lainez, who stands a full foot smaller, lowering his hand to his chest and the crouching to his knees. "And I do think our guys showed great composure".

Lainez, 18, had been Mexico's best player during a dominant first half display which saw El Tri carve out the most promising openings without being able to convert their pressure into goals.

U.S. forward Gyasi Zardes had headed over from Weston McKennie's cross early in the first half but Mexico were in control for long periods afterwards.

It was the culmination of a sudden sea change of action that started a few minutes earlier in the second half.

There's still a lot of room to grow: The last three friendlies have all come against World Cup teams in France, Brazil and Mexico, and the usa has fared well with a win, a loss and a draw.
