USA 3- Mexico 2 (Aggregate)

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.

If only we could be like the Mexicans in NY...

So today is the big game! The game is at 3pm and will be shown on Mun2 in English and Telemundo in Spanish.  There will be a pregame show on ESPN the first ever pre-game show they do for a soccer game that they are not actually showing.  If you are like me than you do not get Mun2 (although they are adding it to all satellite customers for the game today free) because I have cable.  So I will be out and not able to add posts about the game today.  I will be able to comment though and will try to update that way.  Go USA!!!
