They won the game 2-1, with all three goals coming in the first half.

But the competition will now be remembered for the incredible incident that happened at 32 minutes.

Central defender Jesus Alcantar had a moment of madness in Mexico’s 2-0 win.

Initially, his team defended the situation well, made a few goal-safe blocks and duels in the penalty area.

But for some unknown reason, when the ball fell his way, Alcantar decided to grab him.

The defender can be seen appealing for something, which likely explains why he decided to stop the game himself.

Diego Luna scored from the resulting penalty to put the USA back in the game.

Luckily for Alcantar, the away team couldn’t find anyone else, meaning his moment of madness didn’t prove too costly.

Despite the decision, Mexico emerged victorious 2-1

Alcantar is currently on loan at Sporting CP from Club Necaxa, although he only plays for their B team.

When he signed for the Portuguese club, he described himself as “a fearless player and good with the ball”.

He added: “I will give everything to be successful here. I come here to grow.”
