United States of America vs Mexico highlights and match reviewBy Kelly Sanders Nov 14, 2016
It's a rivalry US vs. Mexico.
Despite the recent political and sociological climate between both neighboring nations, this match will simply be 22 men on a cold Columbus night in front of a sellout and passionate American and Mexican fanbase. It's a special place for us because it gave us so many good results. Team USA appeared to have taken control with Michael Bradley and Jermaine Jones began taking control of midfield and Wood's runs wreaked havoc on the Mexicans.
And they've grown never having seen it end with anything but a US victory.
Prior to this stage of qualifying, Mexico have looked solid, and did not lose a single game in the fourth round of qualifying.
There will be no Dos A Cero tonight for the #USMNT.
It had been since 1993 when last Mexico topped Canada on Canadian soil in a World Cup qualifier, and since 1972 that Mexico had beaten the U.S.in America in a qualifier.
"We've got to go down there and get a result".
Much of the pre-game focus was on the United States' flawless record over Mexico in Columbus, Ohio. Conversely, Mexico did not let the 24,650 red, white and blue-clad fans discourage its effort.
"(Losing to Mexico) gets a sense of anger in all of us and absolutely a sense of urgency because we don't want to be behind in the group", Klinsmann said.
LSU vs. Arkansas: Live Score, Highlights for Tigers vs. Razorbacks
Arkansas wanted to devour the run - and it did by allowing just 12 yards on 14 carries in a 31-10 win over the Gators. The defense kept Alabama from opening it up on the scoreboard, as LSU's offense once again sputtered in a big game.
Mexico players celebrate the win. "So I'm very excited".
Despite the first time loss of Team USA on home turf, they still respected their opponent Team Mexico. "I can remember sitting on my couch in 2001 and watching Josh Wolff score and he was playing for my dad at the time in Chicago and I can remember being so excited that he was playing and he got on the field and made a difference". The game will air on Fox Sports 1. The MLS stadium's size allows the U.S. Soccer Federation to ensure a pro-American crowd.
The U.S. fell by the same scoreline, 2-1, as it did then while the Hershey native, 18, was one of the bright spots of the hosts' attack at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. They will meet again in Mexico City in Round 6. Zero became one. Dos a cero became impossible.
"Strange right", Howard said when asked about the score line.
It was during Arena's tenure as national team coach that the USMNT first hosted Mexico in central OH back in 2001 when the Americans earned their first of four consecutive 2-0 victories over El Tri.
"We know it's going to be a very hard game, a very close game and really anything is possible", he said.
"It should always be here", Howard said. But with less than two minutes to go in the match, the USA conceded its first corner of the match, and Mexico made it pay.
Well said, Tim. Well said.
