World Cup Qualifier Has U.S. & Mexico Result In A Tie!

usa america mexico soccer world cup qualifier

Is it an exciting game of soccer where the two teams are so evenly matched that the result is a 0-0 tie, or is that the most boring game in history??

We're sure people would argue the former!

For the U.S., this means we're now in third place in the World Cup qualifying with 1-1-1. Three of ten matches in, we're right behind Panama by one point!

The thing is — the Americans got lucky! According to the source, there SHOULD have been a penalty kick for a two-handed push:

'Mexico could have been awarded a penalty kick for a two-handed push by Michael Bradley on Chicharito in the 12th minute. And El Tri probably should have been awarded one in the 76th when Maurice Edu took down Aquino from behind with a sliding tackle. The Mexican players were livid when no penalty was called, surrounding Guatemalan referee Walter Lopez. Lopez didn't back down, though replays showed Edu had clipped Aquino's foot.'

Things are in-tense for qualifiers!!

After a game in Jamaica in June, the U.S. will play four of its six final qualifiers at home!

USA! USA! USA!
