Current Event

This is my current event on the 2-0 US Soccer win over rival Mexico. This win was huge for the US team, with a US win and a Panama lose or tie over Honduras they would clinch a birth in the 2014 World Cup. Also this was a huge win because not 6 months before this game the US traveled to Mexico to play in the Hex in a hard fought battle and ended in a tied at 0-0.
This 2-0 win also continues a steak of 4, 2-0 wins by the US when they play Mexico at the Crew Stadium in Columbus. The chant “dos a cero” was cheered once the team got the second goal and it was looking to be a dominant win by the United States. It was probably one of the most important wins by the team this year because they are finally qualified to play in Brazil for the 2014 World Cup, which is huge. Plus beating our arch rival Mexico is always something huge for the US because Mexico used to always be dominate versus the US but the in past 5-10 years we have really made it hard on them to win.
Hopefully they will continue to play the way they have been and take their momentum into the World Cup next summer. I don’t expect them to win despite how huge of a fan I am because I’ve got to be realistic. They are not one of the top teams in the world despite being ranked 13th in the world on the FIFA rankings. But I will stay that I believe they will have a good chance of doing well in the group stages no matter who they will play.
All in all the US is playing as strong as ever and going to take their momentum into every game from now till they are knocked out of the World Cup.
