Mexican press laments 'Aztecazo'

MOST COMMENTED

Mexico had not lost at Mexico City's Azteca Stadium since a 1-0 loss to Paraguay in a friendly in 2007 -- and it has lost only one competitive match in the stadium's 46-year history -- so the Tri's 1-0 friendly loss to the United States was a blow, especially on a night when Mexico's soccer gold-medalists were honored at halftime.

"Spoiled the fiesta" was the headline in the daily Cancha, which noted that the Mexico team that fell to the United States was a shadow of the team that beat Brazil in the Olympic final.

What made the “Aztecazo” so tough to take, according  El Universal, was the U.S. goalscorer was a Mexican-American playing in Mexico, San Luis defender Michael Orozco Fiscal.

“Feo y genial” ("Ugly and cool") was the way the sports daily La Afición summed up the evening -- "ugly" for Mexico's performance and "cool" for the celebrations honoring the Olympic team.
