Washington makes it 3-0 in the 87th minute! Alex Morgan picked up a through ball, and with one defender in front of her, she looked up and saw a streaking Washington heading into the box. Morgan touched it over and Washington took one touch before slipping it past the goalkeeper

Michelle Enyeart is just on fire this tournament, putting away her sixth goal in the 69th minute to double the USA's lead. Enyeart went on a 40-yard run, outpacing every Mexican defender and slotting the ball past the goalkeeper.

It is POURING here in Puebla right now. the thousands of fans have taken shelter under the limited overhang - your trusty blogger has found a place in the VIP booth...

HALFTIME: USA 1, Mexico 0

The U.S. takes a halftime lead on O'Hara's 10th minute goal. The teams have been trading possessions, but the US has been getting the better of it. They're stringing passes together and moving forward, while much of Mexico’s possession is sporadic and unorganized. Stay tuned for the second half!

We've got some new fans here at the stadium - the entire Trinidad & Tobago team has stayed after their win over Cuba to cheer on the U.S. They're waving flags, and even sang the entire Star Spangled Banner - really impressive, and we're happy to have their support in a hostile environment!

GOAL USA - Kelley O'Hara 10th minute

O'Hara capitalizes on a great build up from the USA out of the back. Winters fought off a defender and snuck a ball through a tight seam. O'Hara had timed her run perfectly and was in alone, slotting the ball to the far post

This is your place for live game updates! The USA and Mexico have taken the field in front of a VERY loud pro-Mexico crowd! The USA has been in this type of environment before, in the Pan American game
