US Downs Mexico...AGAIN!

Over the last few months, Mexico has been playing some pretty impressive soccer. However, despite a chippy first half, they didn't give the US much more trouble than an average CONCACAF team.

The 2-0 US win clinches the US' fifth straight trip to the World Cup and gives them three remaining qualifying matches to test out a few new young players. On Wednesday, they'll face Guatemala in Guatemala City (ESPN2, 10PM EST).

The win also moves the US to the top of the standings and ahead of Mexico. And Mexico isn't taking it well. You can read a good post about the nasty post-game comments here.
