The two players got into each other's faces, with Miazga then gesturing to the much shorter Lainez about the teenager's height. "It took a toll and we won the game".
"I wasn't offended by Miazga", he said. Everyone has their own way of thinking. "I don't know. I'm calm and I don't see it as an insult".
Adams' tally, a 71st-minute strike that was teed up by Antonee Robinson, was the lone goal in a testy friendly at Nissan Stadium; El Tri finished the contest with 10 men after Angel Zaldivar was shown a red card for a brutal tackle on Wil Trapp in the 66th minute. Club America youngster Diego Lainez raced past USA captain Wil Trapp along the goal line to place a tap-in for Cruz Azul star Roberto Alvarado, only for an out-of-position Steffan to dive back toward the net and cradle the ball. "Every player has a different skill set and [I have] to keep going in the same direction".
Apparently, Lainez wasn't fazed by the incident.
However, tempers seemed to boil over as Zaldivar would soon haul Trapp down near midfield to earn the straight red.
