In the 2013 World Cup qualifier, USA and Mexico faced each other in front of a sold-out crowd in Columbus. After the USA had an extended spell of good fortune in the Gold Cup, their last two appearances in the final against Mexico have been far from pretty. The United States and Mexico had met plenty of times before, but quite possibly never on a stage as big as this. The 1998 Gold Cup featured an expanded format in which 10 teams qualify for the tournament. In the 1995 Copa America quaterfinal, USA and Mexico played a tense scoreless match that would eventually end in penalty kicks.
I don't know why, but I really appreciate a good playerhome, especially if they can be upgraded. I loved Rapture from the first moment I walked through and somehow living in an underwater city (without the war) sounds ideal. Despite being an entire village, I loved walking (yes, just walking) through my town and see after every upgrade how it would evolve from poverty to wealth. One I can think of off the bat is Deadpool's home, but then again, it can't be upgraded and only appears in the main menu and the beginning of the game.

Prior the game, USA had played 24 games against El Tri on Mexican soil without a single win.
After Mexico clobbered USA 5-0 in 2009, the United States lost again in 2011 4-2, but this match will be remembered much for for a rare outburst of innapropriate behavior from USA keeper Tim Howard.
USA came into the 2007 tournament having won two of the last three Gold Cups (Mexico won the third), and as the defending champs.
In the semifinal match in front of 91,000 screaming fans at the mighty Azteca, USA and Mexico played another scoreless 90, which meant the match would be decided by way of the golden goal. Despite the expanded competition, we saw another USA-Mexico final and for the third straight tournament, Mexico took home the Gold Cup title. Eric Wynalda and the US team would conect on their first four penalty kick attempts, and Mexico would only go on to make one shot as USA would win the shootout 4-1 and move on to the semifinals. After being knocked out in the semifinals of the 1991 tournament by the US, Mexico left no doubt that Mexican soccer was back after they routed the USA 4-0 in the final in front of a hostile Azteca crowd of 120,000. The result on the field of the LA Coliseum reflected the state of the two programs, as USA shut out Mexico 2-0, and advanced to the final where they eventually defeated Honduras for the Gold Cup title. MLB Confidential »Baseball's Top 50 ProspectsWhere does the recently-signed Yoan Moncada land on Keith Law's prospect rankings? This all changed, thanks to a goal from Michael Orozco Fiscal, who scored off of a backheel pass from Terrence Boyd, and the heroics of Tim Howard who made crucial late saves. Howard took exception to the fact that the award ceremony was held in all Spanish, despite being played at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, and went on an expletive laden tirade, berating CONCACAF for their choice of language. Mexico took the lead in the first half, but the US scored two quick goals in dramatic fashion in the second half and went on to win the match 2-1, claiming their third Gold Cup in four appearances. Brian McBride set the tone ealry with a goal on the 8th minute and a young Landon Donovan sealed the deal with a goal of his own in the 65th minute.
The winning goal was provided by Mexico's Cuauhtemoc Blanco in the 97th minute, which propelled Mexico to the final match against Brazil and eventually the 1999 Confederations Cup title.
They were able to hold off the US, 1-0, thanks to a goal from Luis Hernandez and a pro-Mexico crowd of 91,000 at the Los Angeles Coliseum.


The USA advanced to the quarterfinals, the furthest they have ever advanced in the modern World Cup tournament. He was commanding, keeping a lively Stoke attack fairly quiet, and always got in an made the crucial intervention when it was most needed. For an 18-year-old, playing away to Stoke, he dealt well with everything they threw at him.
It took Boggs 16 years to finally convince a manager to let him pitch, but once he got the chance he certainly made the most of it, tossing a scoreless inning for the Yankees thanks to his fluttering knuckler. Then a member of the Texas Rangers, Canseco got a chance to pitch in a 15-1 blowout at Fenway Park. Though he did manage to get three outs in relief, Canseco walked three batters, allowed two base hits and gave up three runs -- and that isn't even the worst part.
Early in his career, Colavito was called on to relieve Hall of Famer Hoyt Wilhelm in the second game of a doubleheader and proved quite competent in his three scoreless innings of work. Called on to pitch for the Yankees in the first game of a doubleheader, Colavito turned in a scoreless relief performance  and earned an unlikely win on the mound as New York came from behind for a 6-5 victory over Detroit.
Hours later, playing his traditional spot in right field, Colavito belted a home run against Tigers starter Mickey Lolich.Ted Williams, Boston Red Sox (August 24, 1940)AP PhotoYes, even being arguably the best pure hitter in baseball history doesn't exclude you from mop-up duty on the mound.
