    USA vs. Mexico World Cup

    I know this actually isn't a pro sport (international comp.), but the USA is beating Mexico 1-0 in the World Cup Qualifier and they just gave a red card to a Mexican player for challenging the goalie!

    Go USA!!!!

    USA has looked pretty good, but it's hard getting excited about the US soccer team until they start beating quality opponents more regularly.

    Re: USA vs. Mexico World Cup

    Its nice that US is in North American qualifying they basically walk into the World Cup, would be nice if they can get past the group stage in 2010. A win over Mexico is always good!

    They turned it back up offensively then and it showed. I'm a soccer neophyte so I may be all wet, but that's what I saw.

    It did look like they turned it off a bit and almost gave up the tying goal, but thankfully Mexico played dirty and messed themselves up.

    A win over Mexico is always great!

    My old ISU roommates and I are actually thinking about planning a trip to S. Africa for the World Cup.

    Re: USA vs. Mexico World Cup

    A fun match to watch even if it wasn't always well-played. Obviously Bradley was the man tonight and it seems like he's been developing nicely despite all of those that claim nepotism, etc.

    I love the fact that the US is so far into Mexico's head and I love another 2-0 scoreline.
