The United States got a dream start in their World Cup qualifier at Estadio Azteca against Mexico when Michael Bradley scored from 40 yards out.

The goal came in just the sixth minute on a mid-field turnover. Bradley took possession, saw that keeper Guillermo Ochoa had drifted forward, and perfectly drilled just over his head.

Bradley is just the sixth American to ever score a goal in Estadio Azteca.

Here is the goal, via Fox Sports 1.

The match is huge for the U.S. as they sit in third place halfway through the 10-game CONCACAF hexagonal, just one point ahead of Panama. Only the top three teams are guaranteed spots in the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The U.S. lost their first match against Mexico in The Hex, 2-1, in Columbus back in November.

Here is the replay.
