FRISCO, Texas (Feb. 29, 2012) – The U.S. Under-23 Men’s National Team scored back-to-back goals to beat Mexico on Wednesday night. The U.S. won 2-0 at FC Dallas Stadium.

Juan Agudelo gave the U.S. the lead in the 35th minute when he connected on a Mix Diskerud corner kick and put the ball in the back of the net with a powerful header. Diskerud doubled the lead just a minute later, deflecting Freddy Adu’s shot past Mexico goalkeeper Liborio Sanchez.
