It’s another meeting between the rivals.
By defeating Honduras in the semifinal, the United States Men’s National Team qualified for the championship game of the 2021 CONCACAF Nations League Finals. As is customary for most competitions, the opponent is Mexico, setting up another contentious meeting between the two nations. This is the second title match of Gregg Berhalter’s international management career after losing in the final round of the 2019 Gold Cup.
Historically, the titans of CONCACAF have met 71 times, with Mexico holding a 36-19-15 advantage. El Tri qualified for the final four by finishing atop Group B with a perfect 4-0 record, outscoring Panama and Bermuda by a combined 13-3 margin. The semifinal was a tight victory over Costa Rica, requiring six rounds of penalty kicks.
