After watching him play for eleven seasons in Foxboro, New England Revolution fans have plenty of reasons to love Matt Reis. Now the goalkeeper coach for the USMNT, Reis added to that list on Tuesday when he took to social media to troll the Mexican National Team.
By now you’ve certainly seen Michael Bradley’s epic chip against Mexico a few times. In fact, you probably wouldn’t mind seeing it again. So, let’s do that.
What a chip from Michael Bradley!— FOX Soccer (@FOXSoccer) June 12, 2017
Captain America has put the #USMNT up 1-0 early against Mexico. #USAvMEX https://t.co/AlBTYZTxeq
In the sixth minute of Sunday’s game, Bradley intercepted Javier Hernandez’s back pass before setting his sights towards goal. In a moment of brilliance, the US captain took a shot that caught goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa off his line. It was a thing of beauty and it happened in front of 71,537 hostile fans inside the infamous Azteca Stadium.
Mexico would battle back as the game ultimately ended 1-1, marking the third-ever time the U.S. has recorded a draw at Azteca in World Cup Qualifying.
Reis added to the joyous moment by offering this tweet:
This one has a sweet taste and an incredible finish. pic.twitter.com/HRZxQcMRPd— Matt Reis (@MatthewJReis) June 13, 2017
