Tyler Adams may well be the future of the United States men’s national team’s midfield, but he was very much a 19-year-old at Estadio Akron on Wednesday.

The New York Red Bulls’ teen maestro’s mistake helped Chivas Guadalajara to a 1-0 CONCACAF Champions League semifinal first leg win on Wednesday.

Adams made a poor decision in the center of the park, and couldn’t recover well on the ensuing 2v1. Rodolfo Pizarro fed Isaac Brizuela for a 26th minute opener.

Chances were at a premium, and RBNY’s hopes of leveling the leg took a major hit when Aurelien Collin took his second yellow card with just under a quarter-hour to play.

The second leg is April 10 at Red Bull Arena.

Toronto FC took a 3-1 lead on Club America in the other semifinal first leg on Tuesday.

Things boiled over late in the match.
