Have to root for Mexico tonightPosted by ohiovol on 2/6/13 at 4:57 pm
It sucks, but we can't afford to see the other teams taking points off them. I hate them, but they're going to make it to Brazil. Therefore, it would be best for us if they're 8-0 in games that don't involve us.
this makes me sad but i WILL watch and i WILL root for mexico to win. however...i hope they recieve 3 red cards, and chicharito scores all of their goals. also, many injuries and possibly a stadium fire.

We don't necessarily need Mexico to win, but we at least need them to earn a point. Mexico losing to Jamaica at home would be bad for us on multiple levels. Also probably need a Panama win or draw in the other match.
At this point we need as few points for all of the teams involved, as in lots of draws. This particularly sucks because we never win competitive games against Mexico and, in particular, Costa Rica on the road.
Basically we need to win out our remaining home fixtures (15 points there) and get at least 1.5 away wins against either Panama, Mexico Costa Rica (4-6 points).
