Mexican Newspapers Thank the USA

Mexico_2013It really was a once in a lifetime moment for many fans across North and Central America, as years of qualifying all boiled down to a few minutes of intense drama.

Nations held their breath as first Panama, then Mexico, then Panama and then finally Mexico, qualified for the CONCACAF vs. Oceania playoff round to make it to the World Cup. The front pages of the press in Mexico (right) tell it’s own story.

And of course, Mexico had good ol’ Uncle Sam to help them out in their moment of need.
