"Their City. Their Stadium. Our Victory." - USA 1-0 Mexico.

It’s one of the best rivalries in all of sports, so needless to say there is no such thing as a friendly match when the United States take on Mexico. However, there was just one element missing from the US-Mexico rivalry: a US win in Mexico. That’s right, it’s been 75 years and the US had never won a match in Mexico. Their record? 0-23-1.

Well, after last night in the legendary Azteca stadium it’s 1-23-1, and the barrier of prestige Mexico fans held over the heads of American fans has been breached. Chicharito was silenced. Jurgen Klinsmann was vindicated. And a Mexican-American from California, Michael Orozco Fiscal, was the unlikely hero as he kissed the US badge in ecstasy. Despite Mexico’s recent (and amazing) accomplishments, a new chapter to this rivalry has been written. [Graphic by Live Breathe Futbol. GIF via. Posted by EB]
