US Player Squares Up To Mexico Footballer And Jokes About His Height

US Player Squares Up To Mexico Footballer And Jokes About His Height

Even if it's classed as a friendly, an old rivalry like the one between the United States and Mexico isn't going to happen without a little bit of drama. And boy, this one is one to remember.

During their most recent match, the US' Matt Miazga went toe to toe with Mexico's Diego Lainez Leyva and mocked him for his height.

No, seriously. That's where this clash ended up going: taking aim at the Mexican's height.

Check it out:

The 23-year-old Chelsea star is 6ft 4ins, with the 18-year-old Club América winger coming in at 5ft 6ins.

Maybe Miazga was doing it for a reaction? If he was - and that's what he claimed after the match - then Leyva wasn't afraid to square up to the big man and speak his mind.

"We talked a little smack," Miazga said (via the Sun). "It's part of the game. It's mental warfare.

"We got in their heads. They got a red card right after it. It took a toll and we won the game."
