US-Mexico Soccer Impression

By John Philip Wyllie

The sign on the stadium scoreboard said it all. It read, "Welcome U.S." Certainly an odd message to be posting at San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium, which according to Rand McNally, still lies within the boundaries of the United States. Or was it?

Surrounded by a sea of highly charged green-jerseyed Mexico fans, players on the U.S. National Soccer Team must have felt as if they were playing in Azteca Stadium. But this is the situation whenever Mexico brings it's skillful and exciting team to Southern California. Following their every move is a legion of loyal fans waving flags, chanting, blowing their horns and celebrating their heritage. This was not just a soccer game. This was an international battle for the U.S. Cup between North America's two best soccer teams, the United States and Mexico. This was war!
