Joining Panama and Canada, Mexico and the USA are battling in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals this summer. While it is unfortunate this is not a repeat of the heated final from two summers ago, it at least guarantees another competitive fixture between the two rivals. The USA vs Mexico game in the CONCACAF Nations League semifinals is June 15.

The CONCACAF Nations League Finals are in Las Vegas, the same location as 2021’s Gold Cup Final between Mexico and the United States. That game, as well as the previous Nations League Final in 2021 in Denver, proved tight. Both needed an extra 30 minutes to settle a winner. However, the United States emerged victorious both times.

The USMNT game against Mexico is on the same day as the other Nations League semifinal. Panama, which topped Costa Rica on Tuesday night, plays against Canada. Panama’s surprising result sets up a match involving two teams making their debuts in the CONCACAF Nations League Finals. In 2021, Honduras and Costa Rica lost in the semifinals. However, one of Panama and Canada will play for the CONCACAF Nations League title.

The seeding for this game is not based off a draw. Instead, the semifinal matchups are based on group stage performance. The top performing team in the group stage, the United States, is playing against the lowest performing team, Mexico. The USA picked up three wins and a draw in its four games. Mexico had two wins and two draws. Panama also had three wins and a draw, but the United States had a vastly superior goal differential of +12 over four games.
