usa interim coach Dave Sarachan praised the 19-year-old Adams' performance. "When you look at data, analytics and the volume of work he does in 90 minutes, he's a victor, this kid. Not flawless but he's shown that he's emerging as someone that other players can look up to".

Mexico's Angel Zaldivar was shown a straight red card for a risky tackle on Wil Trapp in the 67th minute and four minutes later the home side got the victor, Adams taking advantage of poor positioning by the Mexican defence to slot home from 12 meters out.

Lofty USA defender Matt Miazga got on his high horse to mock diminutive Mexican opponent Diego Lainez, before wilting when confronted by a taller player who cut Miazga back down to size during a friendly on Tuesday. "And I do think our guys showed great composure".

Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen had all three of his saves in the first half when Mexico carried the play.

Here's how to watch United States of America vs. Mexico on television and online.

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

Robinson's introduction gave the U.S. greater width down the flank and when Zaldivar was dismissed midway through the half the hosts seized their chance to stretch Mexico further.

Robinson galloped down the left wing into space and calmly picked out Adams, who had sprinted 40 yards to join the attack.

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.

The loss signals Mexico's fourth consecutive defeat in all competitions, while the Americans, still under the tutelage of interim boss Dave Sarachan, will be buoyed by the performance of their young side.
