Im all for the Mexican team, but I do accept that the USA team has been playing much better lately. I just hope it does not stay that way. Good thing neither the USA or Mexico have to worry aobut Canada.

I feel there is some sort of inferiorioty complex problems in the way the Mexican soccer player thinks. They win against Brazil but lose against Honduras or Salvador. They have players that play incredibly well in Mexican teams, but when they play in Europe they lose their touch.

I just feel it would be a wast if the Mexican team did not make it to next World Cup. Hey, it happened to Holand a couple of years back, so it could happen to anyone.
I have also often wondered why Mexico is such a soccer underachiever, with their population, they should be the equal of Germany, Brazil, etc.

I dont think the population has a direct impact on the skill of a given nation. USA, China have the biggest population and have never been in a World Cup Final.
