We have a big soccer game tonight between USA and Mexico. The game is in Mexico at Azteca Stadium at 8:00 p.m. ET, and will be televised on ESPN 2.  You will be able to follow the game stats on this post in live time.

The USA men’s soccer team needs to fight for redemption as they should have been on the medal stand in London. This game is going to be extremely tough for the American squad as the stats show.

In Mexico City’s Estadio Azteca with an expected 104,000 diehard fans the US record is a dismal 0-23-1. The Mexican National Team has a huge amount of confidence coming to this game against the Americans coming off their Gold medal victory against Brazil.

USA has won for the first time in 75 years in Mexico City’s Estadio!!!!!!!
