Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Nashville, US - Teenager Tyler Adams scored his first in­ter­na­tional goal as a new-look US side de­feated ten-man Mex­ico 1-0 in a friendly on Tues­day.

New York Red Bulls mid­fielder Adams burst into the penalty area to tuck away an An­tonee Robin­son cross on 71 min­utes to set­tle a hard-fought en­counter at Nis­san Sta­dium in Nashville.

US in­terim coach Dave Sarachan praised the 19 year old Adams' per­for­mance.

"This kid's a beast," Sarachan said.

"When you look at data, an­a­lyt­ics and the vol­ume of work he does in 90 min­utes, he's a win­ner, this kid.

The de­feat was Mex­ico's fourth con­sec­u­tive loss.
