World Cup Retrospective: USA vs. Mexico 2002, Dos a Cero!

May 24, 2010

Because of the time difference with the host nations of Japan/South Korean, I remember a month of 3 am wake ups to watch most of the 2002 World Cup. My favorite US match – ever – happened early one morning in June that year to watch my boys take on, and eventually humiliate, North American powerhouse Mexico in the knockout stages. Though favored in that match, Mexico had no answer for what the Yanks had to offer that day. That day also gave us the chant “Dos a Cero!” (“Two to Zero!”) which is sure to get you bruised and bloodied if you dare to utter it south of the border. Enjoy!
