It's no secret that I hate Mexico.  It's also no secret that Mexico deserve it.

Today, at 3:00 PM Eastern, the dreaded El Tri takes on England in an international friendly at Wembley Stadium.  If you know anything about anything, you should understand why this is a big deal.

For those of you who don't:

Over the past 20 years, the US and Mexico have been the traditional powers in the CONCACAF.  In qualifying for this summer's tournament, the US finished top of the group, with Mexico in second place.  On June 12th, the US faces off against England in the first Group C match-up of the World Cup.

Today's friendly should serve as an excellent barometer for what the US needs to do on the 12th.  If you have access to a computer or a TV, I would suggest you watch.


  1. England experimenting and not playing any Chelsea players makes this a less revealing fixture.

  2. ZGS, which team do you hate more, Mexico or England.

  3. That's easy: Mexico.

    I hate England dismissively. I hate Mexico passionately.

  4. Mexico and USA don't really play a similar style, so I'm not sure if Mexico winning/losing has any bearing on our match up against England.
