A makeshift USA team stunned Mexico in the Azteca Stadium last night, beating Mexico 1-0. It was the first time that the US has won in Mexico in 75 years. The best the US had done previously was a draw.
You cannot overstate the importance of this win, especially after 23 defeats in 24 visits to Mexico. Now, when the U.S. goes back next year as part of World Cup Qualifying, the team will travel to Mexico with a the belief and understanding that winning in Mexico City isn’t some unimaginable and unreachable dream of a goal.
