Mexico and Honduras played to a scoreless draw Saturday night at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The match saw both teams with some goal-scoring opportunities, but neither team was able to capitalize off of them.
The match served as part of a tune-up for both national teams, as both teams prepare to compete in the Gold Cup next month. Going forward, Mexico will have two more friendlies, against Panama in Nashville and then against Nigeria in Los Angeles. Meanwhile for Honduras, this was its final friendly before the Gold Cup.
In tonight’s match, a total of 70,072 fans made its way into Mercedes-Benz Stadium. It is believed to be the largest soccer crowd in the world since the start of the pandemic.
