The US Under 23 men's soccer team heads to Olympic qualifying with a confidence building huge victory as they beat Mexico 2-0 on Wednesday night. Mix Diskerud had a goal and an assist within a two minute span in the first half to lead the Americans in the international friendly.

Diskerud's goal came in the 36th minute after he deflected a pass from Freddy Adu Diskerud set up the Americans' first goal when he curled a corner kick from the right side that Juan Agudelo 
headed into the left corner of the net in the 35th minute.

Wednesday's friendly was a tuneup for both teams before Olympic qualifying starts later in March. The United States will play Cuba in its first match in Nashville, Tenn., and Mexico will play Trinidad and Tobago on March 23rd in Carson, Calif.
from outside the top left corner of the goalie's box. Adu fired a shot from outside the penalty area that brushed against the left leg of Diskerud and into the right corner of the net.

Ricardo Bocanegra almost scored on Mexico's first shot of the game when he fired a right-footed volley from outside the top of the penalty area. Bill Hamid 
made a diving  save to his right side.  Hamid only played in the first half and finished with three saves before he was replaced by Sean Johnson.

Mexico forward Marco Fabian who plays for Mexican First Division team CD Chivas and has been rumored to be a target of Manchester United and FC Barcelona, did little in the match. The closest Fabian came to scoring was on a line drive shot from 35 yards that Johnson easily scooped up in the 65th minute.

The true stars of the game were the attacking trio of Freddy Adu, Joe Gyau and Juan Agudelo.  Before all three were subsituted in the second half it was all USA.
