An early purpose gave the United States soccer group hope, but in the end the result of their Planet Cup Qualifier against Mexico at Azteca Stadium was a familiar loss. Mexico rallied for a 2-1 triumph in front of their residence fans, sending the US to defeat for the 23rd time in 24 games at the venue. The very best outcome the US has been able to muster on Mexican soil was a – draw in 1997.
The United States quickly silenced the raucous crowd of one hundred,000+ with a objective by Charlie Davies just eight minutes into the game. It was the very first time in history that the US soccer group led a match at Azteca Stadium.
Mexico would pull even just ten minutes later when Cuauhtemoc Blanco set up Israel Castro, who beat US goaltender Tim Howard with a blistering shot off the crossbar. That set the stage for Miguel Sabah’s aim in the 82nd minute which gave Mexico the come-from-behind victory. Mexico coach Javier Aguirre sounded simultaneously elated and relived with his post match comments:
“Right now is a day to celebrate, drink a couple of tequilas, and then get back to perform. Everyone will go to bed tonight a bit more relaxed.”
His American counterpart, Bob Bradley noted:
“I feel it’s a tight game and a fair score. It is hard loss to have so a lot of guys perform so tough and then give up a late aim. The feeling inside is one particular of great disappointment.”
US forward Landon Donovan spoke of his teams overall performance and the difficulty in playing at the high altitude:
“We did a good job beginning the game effectively and scoring. They made a single play at the finish that produced the difference. It is difficult to play here, man. It wears you out. It really is just exhausting.”
The Americans play Sept. 9 at Trinidad and Tobago. Theyll finish up qualifying on Oct ten at Honduras and at house against Costa Rica on Oct. 14. Mexico will play at Costa Rica on Sept. 5 and host Honduras on Sept. 9. Mexico will wrap up qualifying on Oct. 10 at property with El Salvador and at Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 14.
