So Mexico won 2-1… When you consider the lack of importance for the US, the win or they’re probably done mentality for Mexico, and the fact that they played at awful Azteca, this is not the worst result ever. This game undeniable confirmed that the US are the superior team in CONCACAF, or at least in the US v Mexico rivalry (I wont take anything away from Costa Rica yet).
When you take the two games together, our 2-0 win in Columbus and the loss today, this would be a win overall if we considered it a home and home, the way that the Champions League is played, for example. If there is anyone who thinks that Columbus is a harder place to play away than Azteca I would love to hear why, but for now I think that fact makes the overall score even more impressive…
For a recap of the game you can read it on ESPN, but I’m just going to touch on a few things then I would like to hear other peoples thoughts. First I think Charlie Davies has transformed as a player this summer more than any other American and his goal today just confirmed that. Also Landon’s pass was world class and I feel he could still be immensely successful in Europe if he found the right place. I’m glad that I called the two guys who would be left out, although that was not the biggest deal ever. And lastly Tim Howard made some unbelievable saves like always, to help confirm that he is the best in the world.
So tell me what you all think about the game.
