USWNT vs Mexico LIVE: Olympic qualifying decisive match

The U.S. women’s national team aims to reach a seventh straight Olympics when it faces Mexico at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, Calif., Friday night.

Concacaf’s Olympic qualifying tournament has been the USA’s playground, with the Americans 21-0-1 all-time and outscoring opponents 116-3 in their history. All it takes to ruin that history and keep the U.S. from a summer trip to Tokyo is one loss, though, something that Mexico has delivered on a big stage in the past. In a qualifier for the 2011 Women’s World Cup a decade ago, a famous 2-1 Mexico win nearly cost the U.S. a place in Germany. That remains the only win for Mexico over the U.S., with the two-time reigning Women’s World Cup champs 36-1-1 in all-time matchups.
