  • 2010 World Cup, Mexico, World Cup qualifying

The Mexican Football Federation has announced that the USA-Mexico World Cup qualifier in Mexico City on Aug. 12th will start at 4pm (ET).

So a 3pm local time kick sounds interesting. We can expect some muggy, humid conditions at Estadio Azteca (some have said temps in mid-August there are usually in the mid-70s). Some may make a bigger deal out of the start time than others but playing in altitude like Mexico City at this time of day could either be a good thing for the US or a bad thing.

What do you think of this news? Think Mexico is getting desperate? Why is this game being played so early? To better manage crowd violence if the United States actually wins?

    Mexico is desperate homie. Look at their form in the last few years…horrible. Losses to Jamaica, El Salvador, Honduras, Tie w Guatemala. Barely squeaked into WC qualifying. When is the last time Mexico beat the US? I think the goal tally is USA w about 18 goals and Mex around 3. The problem w the Mex team and the fans is that they have a lack of respect for their opponents. It's a mental thing, refusing to acknowlege the fact that many CONCACAF nations form is getting better and Mex is stagnant. Remove the veil from your eyes and tell Coach Aguirre he was wrong for trying to intervene against Phillips from Panama. Verguenza!

    I don't think he made it sound like a desperate move by Mexico at all. He simply said that the conditions could have a good or bad effect on the game for the US. Don't be so sensitive. This is a blog that focuses on US soccer, mostly MLS, so obviously it's going to be from an American perspective. Chill out. <br />
    Drew, I would suggest removing that comment. It was really uncalled for, rude, and the word &quot;retarded&quot; should never be used as an insult.

    Thanks Kevin. I'm going to set some bans to certain keywords for comments…next time those will go in the spam filter
