Chelsea's Matt Miazga shamed Mexico's Diego Lainez for being short

Chelsea's Matt Miazga shamed Mexico's Diego Lainez for being short

But clearly unhappy at the foul, Miazga became irate and began gesturing and talking to Lainez about his height, given the sizeable difference between them.

"We aren't all going to be the same height", Lainez told reporters after the game.

"I wasn't offended by Miazga", he said. "I don't know. I'm calm and I don't see it as an insult".

Mexico's Angel Zaldivar was shown a straight red card for a unsafe tackle on Wil Trapp in the 67th minute and four minutes later the home side got the victor, Adams taking advantage of poor positioning by the Mexican defence to slot home from 12 meters out. Club America youngster Diego Lainez raced past USA captain Wil Trapp along the goal line to place a tap-in for Cruz Azul star Roberto Alvarado, only for an out-of-position Steffan to dive back toward the net and cradle the ball.

Apparently, Lainez wasn't fazed by the incident.

The United States came out on top in what proved to be a fiery game when Tyler Adams bagged his first goal for his country in the 70th minute. "It's football. Football players are different sizes and have different skill sets".

Zaldivar was quickly shown his marching orders for a tackle on midfielder Wil Trapp after coming in studs up and over the ball on the US midfielder.
