Since 1980, U.S. has posted a 9-8-7 record in the series and has won five of the seven matches played since 2000. The U.S. outscored Mexico by a total of 10-1 in those five matches.

Mexico has not scored more than two goals against the U.S. since a 4-0 win on July 25, 1993, at Mexico City. The U.S. has scored three or more goals in five of the 47 meetings between the two sides -- most recently in a 3-0 win on June 11, 2000, at Giants Stadium in the U.S. Cup final.

"Osama, Osama, Osama' was the chant, referring to al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, that rang out from the crowd of 60,000 at Estadio Jalisco before a U.S. soccer match against Mexico in 2004. And this was a match between the two countries' Under-23 teams!

Mexico went on to win that match, 4-0, and eliminate the U.S. from the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, but the high passion of the fans--albeit shown in somewhat of a tasteless manner--was just another indicator of how intense the soccer border rivalry between the U.S and Mexico has become over the last decade."

hehe, so true. There were so many people upset that the US team was being booed on their own turf, and let's face it, that's pretty messed up. However, the US took in over 100 medals at the Beijing Olympics and Mexico had 3. I am OK with this.

On a side note, Team USA will not improve until we get a world class coach. Bob Bradley has plateaued and should have been showed the door after the last world cup.

That game didn't count because they played with womens soccer balls.

Americans don't really care about soccer, much less the way we do about football and basketball. That's why the crowd was 90% mexico.
