Doesn't count?

So the US win over Mexico on Wednesday doesn't count since the Home team was automatically supposed to win, no questions asked. The 90+ minutes of play are just for shits and giggles. South Africa should have been awarded the World Cup in 2010, Germany in 2006 and Korea/Japan should have shared the Cup in 2002. Also, France's World Cup should be revoked because they were playing at home and it doesn't count since it's a well known fact that the home team plays with 5 extra players, can use their hands at any time, and each red card they receive awards them 3 extra goals and deducts 2 goals from the away team

Dude, it's pretty much a fact that Mexico is head and shoulders above the USMNT in terms of quality players and overall play right now. In fact, one US website even went as far as saying that the US is closer to 3rd, 4th, or 5th place in the Concacaf than they are to Mexico's undisputed place at the top. That may be a little too extreme but that just goes to show what the general sentiment is regarding US vs. Mexico.
