U.S. vs Mexico, it’s gonna get Dirty!

In the road to the World Cup, the United States has a huge qualifier tonight versus rivals Mexico in the CONCACAF bracket. These two teams hate each other and the intensity and flow of the game is usually dirty and fierce. In this type of game, people usually get hacked and it brings out the best in the US team. Tonight in Columbus at 7 pm all the action happens. It’s the first round of the final leg of World Cup qualifying and it’s time to step it up.

78112036BL023_U_S_MNT_V_MEXI hate Mexico for their dirty play and I just can’t stand watching them. They lack the skills of an up and coming US team that really looks to make more of an impact in 2010. Freddy Adu was left off the roster but expect Landon Donovan to pick up the slack. Donovan has struggled in the World Cup but recently has been playing in Germany for Bayern Munich. The Adu snub is due to the lack of action he’s seen in France. Baby Pele is getting upset, personally he’s not too impressive. He’s young but hey hype is much too large for this young little man.

The U.S. has dominated recently gathering an 8-0-2 home record against Mexico since 2000. In this time the U.S. has totaled 17 goals, while the Mexicans have countered with three goals on American soil in this decade.

The U.S. finished 2008 with a 9-3-2 record, including a 7-1-0 record in World Cup qualifying.

Action starts tonight at 7pm ET. Get loud in Columbus…I’ll be watching.
