Miazga towered over the 18-year-old and mocked the player's height, putting a straight hand out to show the difference between the pair before looking downwards with a bemused expression.

That strike came just three minutes after Angel Zaldivar was sent off for Mexico for a challenge on American Will Trapp. Entering the match, only three players in USA boss Dave Sarachan's starting lineup had senior-side experience against Mexico.

The U.S. suffered an injury setback when midfielder Weston McKennie came out in the 40th minute after suffering a left knee sprain.

The Mexicans went down 4-1 to Uruguay last week, their first friendly after being knocked out the World Cup at the last 16 stage by Brazil.

There certainly is potential, even though the Bengals have spent the past two games treading the line between winning and losing. At that point, no one would have blamed the Ravens for wanting a second game against the Bills this season , not the Bengals .


The match between the regional rivals became heated in the second half.

Matt Miazga stirred up tensions by mocking the height of Diego Lainez as the United States took on Mexico in a friendly.

Sarachan made six changes from Friday and his lineup averaging 23 years, 5 days, the youngest starting lineup for the Americans against Mexico since at least 1990. For Ricardo Ferretti's young Mexico side, four players made their global debuts at Nissan Stadium.
