On Wednesday, Mexico beat Ecuador in Oakland, Calif., in a game that was sold out two weeks before kickoff while on the same day a crowd nearly a fifth smaller attended the USA's game against Guatemala in Texas.

''We probably could have sold another 50,000 tickets,'' said David Alioto, executive vice president for Earthquakes Soccer, which co-hosted the Mexico-Ecuador game with SUM.

Mexico has played three games on U.S. soil in 2007, including a 2-0 loss to the USA, which drew the biggest crowd of the USA's four home games this year. The crowd at that game was comprised mostly of Mexican supporters.

63,328 Mexico 3 Venezuela 1 (Feb. 28 in San Diego, Calif.)
47,416 Mexico 4 Ecuador 2 (March 28 in Oakland, Calif.)
62,462 USA 2 Mexico 0 (Feb. 7 in Glendale, Ariz.)
31,547 USA 3 Ecuador 1 (March 25 in Tampa, Fla.)
10,932 USA 0 Guatemala 0 (March 28 in Frisco, Texas)
10,048 USA 3 Denmark 1 (Jan. 20 in Carson, Calif.)
