What do we have to do to get that W in Mexico? It's been impossible for team USA to win there besides the Friendly we got on them last year. This would be a huge win.
Game is 9:30 on ESPN

I thought game wasn't til 10:15-10:30? Mexico has to be one of the most hostile places in the world to play. TBH not sure you could pay me (as a USA fan) to go there. Shit gets crazy down there, especially if we were to somehow to pull out a victory.
I've been to games in colombia and that was a great time but you're right idk if id want to go to Mexico.
Happen to go back when Pablo was still around? Not even sure if he was involved with national team, but that dude wouldn't think twice about killing anybody.
Nothing like elevation & air pollution at Azteca Stadium.
I was way too young for that as he was killed in the 80'a I think. However I did go to a soccer game in Bogota and or was a great time. Or was their countries soccer league games. I did drive by one of his mansions in Medellin once though. Or was a huge white mansion with gates around or.
Escobar was beloved by many of the poor in colombia because he did a lot with charity. He helped to build stadiums and many other things.
Now of course he'd kill anyone and he amassed his wealth from dealing coke but hey.
Colombia is an AWESOME country with the funnest times anyone could have.
Where did you learn to write?
Maracana in Rio holds 200,000 fans and has a deep dry moat around it patrolled by security with mean ass German Shepards. Thats to protect the refs. Fans are also divided by chain link fences. Seats are poured concrete but few sit during a good game.
Well, the first major problem we have is that we are Americans. We play football, basketball, baseball, hockey, lacrosse, and Nascar over soccer. Until our nation get's serious about soccer (maybe in the sense that we like it at the MLB level of interest) then there is no hope for our National Soccer team.
I think Roger Goodell is really going to help soccer, NBA and the UFC with the way he's killing football.
TOON TOON! BLACK N WHITE! TOON TOON! BLACK N WHITE!
Don't agree. In the last World Cup, the US won their group (which included almighty England) and made it into the round of 16. Back in '02 (just 3 world cups ago) they made the round of 8. Keep in mind, this is out of almost 200 some-odd countries. Not to mention they've represented well in other recent tournaments, see the 2009 confererations cup, 2nd place, and they beat Almighty Spain (who only won the world cup a year later). I seem the recall the US beating Brazil within the last few years as well, but cant recall when.
Nobody would say that an NCAA Basketball team that makes both the elite 8 and sweet 16 in recent years in March Madness has no hope. Why would soccer be different?
