Mexico’s Most Popular Team Last Night — USA
Last week Mexico kept its World Cup hopes alive by beating Panama with an amazing bicycle kick goal.
This week, all Mexico had to do was beat Costa Rica to stay alive but they lost. So their World Cup hopes depended on the USA (who had already qualified) beating Panama in Panama. All seemed lost when Panama took a 2-1 lead into stoppage time and then lightning struck . . .
Mexico now advances with a playoff with New Zealand with the winner qualifying for Brazil 2014.
