Good thing no-one cares about the Gold Cup anyway.
But no matter the competition or team the U.S. should never – never – lose 5-0 to Mexico. And certainly shouldn’t collapse on that scale, conceding five goals in just over 30 minutes.
How different would it have been if the likes of Rolling Hills Estates’ Robbie Rogers had converted first half chances?
It was the first time a team scored five goals against the U.S. since Czechoslovakia won by a 5-1 margin in the 1990 World Cup.
If this doesn’t motivate U.S. Soccer to lobby CONCACAF to move this tournament to an every four year rotation nothing will.
