USMEX_2013 [1]COLUMBUS, 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.
