USA To Open Hexagonal At Home Against Mexico

USA-Fans-Newhe U.S. national team will open the final round of World Cup qualifying against Mexico on Nov. 11 after defeating Trinidad and Tobago on Tuesday to win Group C.

The U.S. national team will host rival Mexico on Nov. 11 to kick off CONCACAF’s final stage of World Cup qualifying.

That matchup was set Tuesday as the U.S. clinched the top spot in Group C of the semifinal stage by recording a 4-0 win over Trinidad and Tobago in Jacksonville, Florida. Mexico’s position as the Group A winner, meanwhile, has been secure since March.

The Americans will then travel to face Group B winner Costa Rica four days later, with Mexico visiting Panama.

The top three teams in the Hexagonal will advance to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, with the fourth-place finisher taking on the fifth-place side from Asia in a two-legged playoff in November 2017.

It should come as now surprise that U.S. Soccer have picked Columbus as their home venue for a Mexico match. It’s become a well-known tradition in American soccer that Columbus is their safe haven when it comes to the most difficult match they play at home. And every four years, the most difficult match is against Mexico in the Hex.

Nov. 11, 2016: USA vs. Mexico

    Argentina with Messi is one of the leading teams in Copa America… Enjoying this tournament very well this season!!!

    It’s definitely worth paying to see how the Stars and Stripes do against a powerhouse team like Mexico’s. Nevertheless, I’m hoping that both sides won’t treat this like any other friendly.

  • Raymond L. February 10, 2015, 2:22 am

    While the Stars and Stripes are notorious for letting their guards down in the second half after going all out in the first, this match against Panama didn’t follow that same trend. And because the squad maintained their focus throughout the 90 minutes, they came away with the win—certainly a breathe of fresh air after that disappointing loss to Chile a week ago.

    • David February 10, 2015, 8:31 am

      Totally agree although I put part of the Chile defeat down to the fact that the players had not played since November and are not fully fit yet.

    Hi congrats to the US team they play great against Mexico i hope the US keeps on the supremacy against Mexico for years to came, but I’m from Honduras and i hope that we do a lot more than Mexico to take a least one point home, but if not i would just like to see national team for the first time here in Chicago.

  • Dave February 12, 2009, 8:42 am

    When will the venue for USA vs Honduras be decided and announced and when will tickets go on sale? What a win vs Mexico! It was great to see so many foreign based players! Our defense looked a bit suspect however. Hopefully that will improve with time, otherwise things will be same-ole-same-ole come cup time!

    • David Wilson February 12, 2009, 9:43 am

      Hi Dave. The U.S. will play Honduras on June 6 at Soldier Field in Chicago. I would expect tickets to go on sale in early May.

    • David Wilson January 11, 2009, 4:47 am

      Unless you are a Crew ticket holder or belong to something like Sam’s army Lonnie, it looks like a ticket reseller like StubHub is your only choice for tickets to the game

  • Alejandra Gutierrez January 1, 2009, 2:07 am
