The latest installment of one of the biggest rivalries on this side of the planet will take place Thursday when the U.S. Men's National Team travels to Mexico.

With the USMNT riding in hot after three straight victories over El Tri, a win for either team would go a long way towards securing a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Although the Americans have never won at the Estadio Azteca in a World Cup qualifier, Gregg Berhalter's side will be looking for big performances from stars like Christian Pulisic, Tim Weah and Tyler Adams.

For Mexico, Chucky Lozano and Raul Jimenez will play significant roles for the host nation and they'll need to succeed if El Tri wants to topple their biggest rival.

ONE37pm takes a look at five of the best USMNT-Mexico goals since 2000.

5. Benny Feilhaber (USMNT)

2007 Concacaf Gold Cup Final

Feilhaber struck this ball about as clean as possible and was a huge reason why the USMNT went on to win the Gold Cup in 2007.

4. Paul Aguilar (Mexico)

2015 Concacaf Cup

Aguilar had some amazing moments for Mexico throughout his career, and this goal against the Americans highlighted his brilliance in attack.

This was truly splendid technique on a tough volley and Aguilar buried the chance at the back post.

3. Israel Castro (Mexico)

2009 Concacaf World Cup Qualifying

Castro wasn't known for scoring goals in his career for El Tri. In fact, he only scored one in a national team kit, but this goal was very worthy of being one of the best against the United States.

2. Michael Bradley (USMNT)

2018 Concacaf World Cup Qualifying

Results are hard to come by for the U.S. at the Estadio Azteca, but this goal from Bradley was certainly the best the Americans have ever had in the heart of Mexico City.

1. Giovani dos Santos

2011 Concacaf Gold Cup Final

Take the USA-Mexico battle out of the equation and this would still be one of the truly great goals you'll ever witness.

Dos Santos not only used quick feet to get away Tim Howard, but then proceeded to complete one of the nicest back-post chips to help seal this match for Mexico.
