There were a couple options, but the hero gets the kudos.

What a match! The USMNT took down Mexico 3-2 in extra time to win the inaugural Concacaf Nations League. Goals by Gio Reyna, Weston McKennie, and Christian Pulisic were the difference as the young squad took out their archrivals.

However, for the over 1750 people in the SSFC community, it was a penalty save that was the determining factor in who they though the Man of the Match was. And, that man was Ethan Horvath. His penalty save of Andres Guardado in the 4th minute of stoppage time in the 2nd extra time period saved the match for the Americans and gave them the trophy, and you all responded with one of the highest ratings a player has ever received from the SSFC community.

Ethan Horvath - 9.24
