A U.S. Win Versus Mexico Clinches World Cup Berth

USMEX_2013COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Alejandro Bedoya remembered back four years ago, when he walked onto the field with his American teammates to face Mexico at the Rose Bowl and saw the crowd of 93,000-plus.

"A sea of green," the 26-year-old midfielder said, referring to the Mexican jersey color.

While American soccer fans are outnumbered by visiting supporters at many venues, the U.S. team has found a home at cozy Columbus Crew Stadium.

It's become the traditional site of the Stars & Stripes' World Cup qualifier against regional rival Mexico following 2-0 victories in 2001, 2005 and 2009.

And on Tuesday night the Americans hope to emulate their performance of four years ago, when they clinched a World Cup berth by beating El Tri.
