Four numbers to remember
[USA-MEXICO] Whom does recent form favor in Columbus? It's been 12 years since the USA lost a World Cup qualifier at home, but Mexico has romped the last two times
the teams have met north of the border in official competition.
Since the USA's third "Dos a Cero" win in 2009, it has faced Mexico twice at
home in official competition and lost both times: 5-0 in the 2009 Gold Cup final and 4-2 in the 2011 Gold Cup.
The number of players carrying
yellow cards into Tuesday's game is down to four:
Since 2000, the USA owns a plus-6 advantage on Mexico in their 20-game series. Before 2000, Mexico's edge in the 41-game series was a whopping plus-22.
USA vs. Mexico
The USA's unbeaten streak in home World Cup qualifiers is 25 games (23-0-2) dating back 12 years to the game it
lost to Honduras, 3-2, at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
