Josh Wolff scored one goal and set up another to lead the United States to a 2-0 win over Mexico before a full house in Columbus. Wolff scored to give the United States the lead when Clint Mathis fed him with a long pass and he beat Jorge Canpos to score into the open net. After showing little in the first half, the Americans created all kinds of trouble for Mexico early in the second half. Mathis, in particular, was outstanding. The Mexicans pressed for the equalizer. The insertion of Miguel Zepeda brought new life into the Mexican attack. Paco Palencia had the best chance in the 70th minute but was stopped by Brad Friedel. With three minutes left, Wolff broke free in the right corner and fed Earnie Stewart for the second goal. The victory was the third straight over Mexico -- and its first in World Cup qualifying since 1980. The loss extended Mexico's winless streak to six games. Feb. 28 in Columbus, Ohio USA 2 Mexico 0.
