Fan Reaction: USMNT enthralling 3-2 victory over Mexico

The United States Men's National Team renewed their long-standing rivalry with Mexico last night in the CONCACAF Nations Final held in Denver, Colorado. The USMNT battled from being down 1-0 and 2-1 to win the game 3-2 after extra time. 

As good as that sounds, you know there is so much that comes with a match between these two North American rivals. And with that in mind, you know social media did not fail to impress. Here's some of the best tweets of the night during the game. 

Gio Reyna equalizes for USA

After Mexico took an early 1-0 lead, the USMNT had to find an equalizer. In the 27th minute, Dortmund's young prodigy Gio Reyna slotted home a Weston McKennie header the ricocheted off of the post. 

At halftime, the score stood at 1-1. The second half is where the saying "CONCACAF is gonna CONCACAF" comes into play. And boy did it ever. 

Diego Lainez gives Mexico the lead

Moments after coming on the pitch, Diego Lainez  was able to get around defender Tim Ream and give Mexico a 2-1 lead in the 79th minute. 

Weston McKennie ties the game

Minutes later, Weston McKennie was able to head home a corner kick to tie the game 2-2 as regulation time was winding down. 

Now things start to get weird and again, USA/Mexico is nothing short of wild and crazy. Like, a fan storming on the set of the panel during the break before extra time. 

In the second half of stoppage time, Christian Pulisic was taken down inside the penalty area. The call on the field was originally a clean tackle, but upon further review, VAR came into play. And boy did things get spicy there.

As the center official was walking over to the monitor, members of the Mexico bench and team surrounded the official pleading their case. Head coach Tata Martino was then issued a red card for illegally entering the VAR area between the benches and placing his hands on the official. 

After review, all eyes. were on the center official and he did not disappoint in his decision. The call was reversed and the USMNT were awarded a penalty. The call from the official was what mattered the most, as he took his time to shine when needed. 

Pulisic was able to convert the penalty, and in iconic fashion, gave us the photo for eternity. 

You thought we were done? No way. It just gets even better.

Mexico was awarded a penalty after a handball inside the box in the brink of stoppage time of extra time. This was a big test for Ethan Horvath, who came into the match for an injured Zack Steffen in the second half of regulation. These next tweets are every USMNT fans thoughts.

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you Ethan Horvath who stood on his head and stopped the ensuing penalty kick to preserve the lead for the USA.  

In hindsight, this was the best match ever if you were a neutral.

The USMNT would hold on to win 3-2 and would ultimately win the inaugural CONCACAF Nations League. But truly, this is the best way to put this game, yet this region of soccer.
