    If history is any indicator, USA will lose this game. In 1997 during the World Cup Qualifiers, I heard the announcers at that time note, "Mexico's record at the Azteca against the US...has never lost." Even listening to Alexi Lalas interview in 1998, he said, "it was like playing in the thunderdome...over 100,000..its intimidating."
