  • Gotta agree with JB.
    I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME!

    The United States, which schedules matches to avoid being the "away" team at home, probably will be a visitor at the Rose Bowl.

    "It sucks," United States defender Jonathan Bornstein said. "You come into your country and you know they are going to have more fans than you are. We're on our home turf, and so we need to be considered the home team even though we might not have all the fans."

    The United States doesn't have home field advantage and it doesn't always get the respect it might deserve despite dominating Mexico in the United States while being at full strength.

    The United States has not lost to Mexico on American soil when at full strength in 12 matches dating back to the year 2000.


    The two ties came in Houston in 2003 and 2008. Coach Bob Bradley's team has beaten Mexico in the last three World Cup qualifiers between both teams played in the United States. All three were 2-0 victories (2001, 2005 and 2009).

    The last time El Tri won on American soil against a United States carrying a complete squad was August 1999 in San Diego.

    On the other hand, the United States has never beaten Mexico on Aztec soil.

    Mexico is still considered the favorite to win its sixth Gold Cup title. De la Torre is unbeaten since he took over as Mexico's coach. His team has outscored opponents 18-2 in this tournament. El Tri's roster has a roster regarded as its best in recent history despite missing starters Guillermo Ochoa and Francisco Rodriguez.

                O'Reilly just had a strike better than anything I've ever seen from Agudelo.

                        No. Dead serious.

                        • Yeah, that strike was disgusting. I don't even think she seriously thought that would happen.

                          • Canada done ****** up.

                            USA - Sweden could be a good one, but I'm pretty excited to have Aussie-Norway going right now. Do or die game during a slow work day? I'll take it.

                            Also just remembered that superbabe Alex Morgan plays for WNY Flash, along with Marta and some other people that like ******* **** up lady style. Would totally check that out, if they actually played in Buffalo like they're supposed to.

                            • The Mexico vs. Germany Sub-17 WC semi-final game is probably one of the greatest games in the history of soccer.

                              Amazing second and third goals by Mexico.

                              • Watched a lot of that match yesterday. Easily in my top 10 matches I've ever watched. That kid was on the verge of what looked like death after that head to head collision & to come back on & score the winner....hello cult hero status. I hope the finals is just as exciting.
