El Tri fell against the United States in an eliminatory duel, once again, with a score that has become customary “
He returned the “Two to zero, two to zero“, the shout with which the American fans celebrated the triumph of USA upon Mexico at Octagonal Final of the Concacaf. As a fluke and a curse, the American team revived the famous marker, which has haunted the Tri as a ghost now in Cincinnati.
As a carbon copy of almost every elimination process in the past, since 2000, USA repeated a marker with which he made the Tricolor on more than one occasion.
In six sets of World Cup qualifiers which have been carried out in the United States, the table of the stars and stripes was imposed on five occasions, including that of this Friday night. Interestingly, the score in those five matches was 2-0.
It was in the year 2000 when the Final Hexagonal format was established to decide the teams of Concacaf that would qualify for the World Cup. Then, USA It took as its headquarters the city of Columbus, Ohio, this due to its icy climate and the small Mexican population in that area of the country.
In February 2000, September 2005, February 2009, September 2013 and now, November 2021, USA won Mexico 2-0, in what became a nickname, a battle cry and a heavy slab for the Aztec team.
The only time that Mexico won as a visitor was in November 2016, as part of the tie for the Russia World Cup 2018. On that occasion, they won 1-2 in Columbus.
Although this year it was played in Cincinnati, Ohio, and not in the traditional Columbus, the change of venue did not affect USA, as he had no problem reviving a nightmare marker for the Tricolor.
With goals from Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie, the team led by Gergg Berhalter, wrote a new chapter in the most important rivalry of the Concacaf, which remained in the history books, as one more point in favor of American football and a ghost that reached the Mexican team.
