With all due respect to Canada though, they have gotten better it seems. I never really saw them play that much in the past though so it's hard to compare. They have scored some fine goals this tournement though.

The U.S doing well in this tournement doesn't really prove all that much, especially playing on their home ground with the comfort of home. They beat most of these teams in qualifying for the world cup, and this region just isn't strong at all in terms of competiton. It has gotten somewhat better though.

The U.S doing well in Copa America will be a much bigger success. Much stronger competiton, and in a much rougher enviornment, where the U.S isn't exactly a fan favorite :lol: . Looking forward to see how we compete there though.

I definitely don't want to see a Mexico USA final, I think that'll just end up like a Man U Chelsea game. I'd like to see either Canada or Guataloupe in the final, preferably Canada of course...

J, are you back now? You've been gone for months!

I suppose usa will win because if they can get in a world cup and we can't they are better. but the quarter final vs haiti (not a strong team BUT... :lol: ) we played for the 1st time like a team. anyway even if US are better I hope canada will win their 1st trophy in anything (I think)

GO CANADA GO!!!


No Canada has won the gold cup in 2000.... against i believe ecuador or colombia but they won it in a close game but i want either canada or mexico to just kill usa and win the cup

Mexico is garbage, they couldn't even beat USA. Last I checked Donavon was the one scoring on mexico during that friendly a few months back. Mexico has one good player and you got it right its Rafa the rest are trash

i dont know about you but last time i checked mexico is one of the teams that makes it every four years to the world cup....have we won any world cups? no we havent yet....and the last time i checked Brazil and Italy couldnt manage to beat us...what does that tell you and at the world cup Portugal barely managed to beat us cause we were a man down...and also the last time i checked at least half or more then half of the players mexico have played in europe or are still playing in europe and the last time i checked Ricardo Osorio and Pavel Pardo helped win the cup for Stuttgart in Germany,and Carlos Salcido helped PSV Eindhoven win their cup.....and yea Carlos Salcido,Pavel Pardo,Ricardo Osorio,Rafa Marquez,Giovanni Dos Santos,and Nery Castillo play in europe thats six players and now the ones that have played over there.... Cuathemoc Blanco,Jared Borghetti,and there is probably more....now the players who are getting offers from europe teams....Andres Guardado,Guillermo Ochoa,and Omar Bravo..yea i know that Giovanni Dos Santos was born in Brazil but why would he play with mexico and not Brazil?the answer is simple he know who is better

all of you mexico fans can talk your trash, but in the end who has won all the recent matches between USA and Mexico? Not to mention mexico is barely winning their games in the Gold Cup which in all due respect doesnt even have strong competiton. SO i think you mexico fans should keep your mouth shuts till you start winning.

why would they have turned him down? he is playing for barcelona and he is going to start in their next season?

Same reason Canada turned down Owen Hargreaves, didn't think he was good enough. But then, he went on to play for England, kinda the opposite here isn't it?

I'd like to thank for already stating the main fact, have Mexico won the world cup, answer is, NO!. Has Brazil and Italy,yes. For all we know they were both sand bagin against them. Like how France beat Italy after the World Cup, tell me why it happened maybe cause Italy didn't have anything to prove and me defending Italy is a rare thing as I hate those Cheating dirty ass WOPS.

:?

The reason they play on the U.S national team is because they were born and raised in the United States :lol:

And I wouldn't be talking all the smack you do considering the U.S has the better record agianst Mexico in recent years. Especially in the game that counted most, which was the round of 16 in the 2002 World Cup where the U.S knocked Mexico out...

And not to mention, soccer is Mexico's number one sport. Which is hardly the case in the U.S. It's like the 4th or 5th most popular sport in the U.S.... Mexico has it's best athletes going pro and investing in the sport from a young age. To be honest, Mexico should be easily beating the U.S everytime.

cheating? yea since we score goals with our hands to win matches and fall and pretend we broke our foot?hello wake up i do admit italy france brazil portugal england and many other good euro teams are centuries better then mexico but were talking about mexico and usa here...ok soccer/football yea its a third or fourth string sport for usa ...but baseball is like a third string sport for mexico but hey we still beat usa in a tournament that the mlb did for countries..yea i agree mexico have been losing to the us...but when you have a 12th player on your team(the ref) you are always gonna win unless your a weak team
