Tomorrow Sunday the USA soccer team will be playing against Mexico for a ticket to Germany 2006 World Cup. The game will be in Mexico City, at the great Azteca Stadium, which will hold 110,000 soccer fans.

I wish and expect for a Mexican victory, but since the USA is a nation close to my heart, I hope the difference will be only one goal and both countries will get their tickets for the World Cup. Mexico 2 - USA 1.

¡Vamos México!

It should be a great game. Azteca is going to be crazy, with 110,000 fans looking for revenge for the defeat in the 2002 World Cup. I'm hoping the US can win for the first time in Mexico City, but it is going to be tough in such an intimidating atmosphere. Whoever wins, I expect both teams to make it to the World Cup. The game probably won't have much of an effect on World Cup qualifying, but it will definately be worth watching. USA-Mexico has become one of the most intense international rivalries in all of soccer.

Just shows the level of interest of soccer in the US. If I hadn't read this thread just now, I would have had no idea about this game. NCAA basketball is the big thing right now, and people just don't follow the soccer action. Too bad, since it sounded like a good game.

I hope so. Smile

It's a good game, although Mexico played far better than the USA. Now Mexico is leading its group with 6 points. I think that we should start looking for those MEX-FRA tickets for next year's summer.

Mexico clearly deserved to win the game. They had several good chances, while the US looked terrible the entire first half. I thought the second half was much closer, with both teams getting a few good opportunities.

I wonder what the Mexican coach did to deserve that red card. Usually it is the coach of the team losing that says something stupid and gets thrown out, not the coach with the 2-0 lead.

"The Americans pressured much more at the start of the first half, and Eddie Lewis scored in the 59th minute off a feed from Landon Donovan. Some Mexican fans responded by chanting "Osama! Osama!".....

There was booing and whistling during "The Star-Spangled Banner" and derisive chants whenever Kasey Keller took goal kicks.



Aren't Mexican fans so tasteful, not to mention educated? Considering that probably half their relatives are making their living in Los Estados Unidos they really should get a grip.

Gotta agree that this kind of act is very disgusting. That has nothing to do with soccer. But unfortunatly many americans gets to hear alot of this. And I can only say that I feel sorry for you guys.

I find it the most disgusting when fans start booing during the national anthem of the visitor team. They should show some respect. I know the Mexican team is (sometimes) the first to whine when they are treated unfairly  

On a brighter side, glad to see the Tri beat the US again.

Is it just me, or has the US team really digressed from the World Cup a few years back? I mean yeah they usually send out an MLS side, but what happened to the creativity and intensity that that team had? Todays game was embarrassing, especially the first half. The U.S team didn't even look like they tried. If It weren't for Kasey Keller this would have been a blow out. We have so much talent, it just never looks like we use it.

The key word here is "some." Sadly, jerks and idiots have the same right to buy a ticket that the most educated soccer fan. What a shame that some ass***** disrespected the USA anthem and the American team. They were a few, but it's a shame nonetheless.

Don't generalize. Most Mexicans in the stadium were graceful and polite with the USA team and its hundreds of fans who were at the game. For instance, I've met a very few racist Americans both in the USA and A.net. I'm sure you, JCS17, know whom I'm talking about. Yet, I'd never dare to say that "Americans are racists and bigots" because that would be a huge lie. Most Americans are neither racists nor bigots. In fact, they are great people. My point is simple, idiots are everywhere and you can find them in any race, country and stadium.

I was once in the very same stadium watching the very same match - Must have been back in 1997 or so - One of the Americans got sent off early but Mexico couldn't take advantage of it and was booed at by their own supporters in the second half - It ended 0-0, IIRC! But what I remember best was the national anthem that was sung by everyone in that stadium, except by one - ME! My friend forgot to teach me the lyrics before the game Wink

Always had a splendid time in Mexico!

Think about the poor Mexico fans who couldn't make it to the stadium and thus had to chuck their urine bombs at the TV. That must have been a tough cleanup.

Because in other countries it's fashionable to boo all things American. Anybody who participates in this forum would know that.

Yeap we better start booking our seats! If LH doesn't add frequencies or AM doesn't open or charter flights to FRA it's going to be a nightmare to get a ticket next year!

Except people who don't travel or think that the USA is the best in this world or is loved everywhere by everyone.

From ESPN.com:
http://soccernet.espn.go.com/report?id=173288&cc=5901

Lewis scored the lone U.S. goal in the 59th minute off a feed from Landon Donovan, the first goal in Mexico for the Americans since 1984.
also..........
The Americans are 0-22-1 in Mexico, getting their lone point from a 0-0 tie in a 1997 qualifier.

And people wonder why hardly anyone over here gives a rip about soccer.

In late 2003 just after Canada decided not to send troops to Iraq the Canadian national anthem was booed at NHL games, in response to this the American anthem was booed at NHL games in Canada. There are disrespectful tasteless fans everywhere, not just Mexico.
