In the past, "El Tri" could always be counted on to dominate their northern neighbors in men's soccer. However, times have evolved.
Although Mexico-U.S. has long been the Concacaf soccer region's largest rivalry, there is excitement for further success in U.S.
soccer's future, and a lack of it for many in Mexico at the moment. Even though the two teams drew 1-1 in a friendly on Wednesday night at State Farm Stadium in front of 55,730 spectators,
primarily on Mexico's side, the disapproval isn't expected to go away much. The passionate supporters of Mexico anticipate victory over neighbors as well as their main opponent.
The two rivals' illustrious rivalry has still another chapter to be written. In the first Allstate Continental Clasico, which was attended by a large chunk of the top deck,
Jess Ferreira's goal in the 81st minute gave the United States a victory over Mexico. Mexico had taken a 1-0 lead early in the second half on Uriel Antuna's goal.
After a Mexico goal-bound attempt hit the post, the United States' goal from Ferreira saved the tie. Ferreira's ninth goal in international play was the outcome of a swift counterattack.
Ferreira of Major League Soccer's FC Dallas was in a position to complete a mishandled defensive clearance.
