Pulisic sends message to Ochoa as USA defeat Mexico – MARCA.com

The rivalry between the United States and Mexican national teams is as fierce as ever, and things were ramped up even more as the sides met in World Cup qualification on Friday night.

Ahead of the game, Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa took a swipe at the US national team in the media.

Mexico has been that mirror in which they [the United States] want to see themselves and reflect, it’s what they want to copy,” Ochoa said.

Christian Pulisic didn’t take kindly to these comments and responded in his own way, coming off the bench to score the first goal in his side’s 2-0 victory.

After scoring the decisive goal, Pulisic revealed a message written on his shirt that said “man in the mirror”, a clear swipe at the comments made by Ochoa in the press in the lead up to the game.

The Chelsea man didn’t want to go into the matter when asked about the message on his shirt in the press conference after the match.
