U.S. men's soccer at an international level has not given our domestic fans much to be proud about in recent years, but perhaps a win over soccer-crazed Mexico does a bit to change all that. The sport has seen recent growth in this country, and I am glad to see the world's most popular sport is gaining some traction.
Having a winning team, in my opinion, doesn't always mean that the team is stronger. It could very well mean that the team simply used the time off-season better this year. A win is always the effect of the team's training. I wouldn't be surprised if Mexico wised up to this and began to train harder.
Even a weak team can win against a strong team. Sometimes a team has a bad night and looses, or has a great night and wins. A number of wins would be a better idea of if a team is strong. Luck has some thing to do with winning and not just skill.
The United States score before Wednesday was 2-4-3 while that of Mexico was 6-1-1 which clearly showed that Mexico was the stronger team before the Wednesday match. In addition to this, the United states team had not won a single match since last September which also adds to the fact that Mexico has been performing better overall despite Wednesday;s loss
