USMNT looks to punch World Cup ticket tonight vs. Mexico

usa soccer mexico previewThe U.S. men’s national team will take the pitch tonight in Columbus, Ohio, with a chance to make it a very special night.

Jurgen Klinsmann’s team is currently in second place in the CONCACAF Hexagonal, one point back of Costa Rica. The Ticos defeated the Americans on Friday night to break their 12-match winning streak. A win by the U.S. tonight at Columbus Crew Stadium, combined with a Honduras win or tie against visiting Panama, means the Americans can punch their ticket to next summer’s World Cup in Brazil.

Sounds easy, right?

Well, there is one thing standing in the way of the celebration – arch-rival Mexico.

Our preview of the match starts now at World Soccer Talk.
