Mexico's goal v Italy is my pick for goal of the tournament so far.

Will be a hard game, Mexico and USA play a lot of games in between, friendlies and in competition, we know each other too well, hope we keep our current level.

I think it sucks that USA has to play Mexico. I would much rather have them play someone else - not in there own "conference" per se. Match both of the teams against a European team, african team, Asian team or something, not two teams from the same area. I thought this was the "World's game" - nad we are now going to weed out a whole continent.

In spanish you can pluralize some abreviations.

E U would mean Estado Unido
EEUU give it a plural meaning Estados Unidos

In Mexico we don't use that very much, we abreviate it EUA ( Estados Unidos de America).

Yes you are right, I think it will be a tough game, it has become a classic game, a derby.
Vamos Mexico!!!

Sorry, I'm too nervous already!

i can understand how you feel. my mother just got back from queretaro and she said that ppl are really excited! she said that team coverage is almost 24/7, stuff like what the players have eaten, will eat, interviews w/their families and things of that sort.

i have always thought, it must be fun to be in a country that goes all out for futbol, the world cup atmosphere must be amazing, esp if the team is doing well. don't get me wrong we get excited in the US too, but on a smaller scale. *maybe someday* we will catch futbol fever too!

best of luck to both teams! may the better team on the field tonight win!
