More like that was 99, the list was from 2000 and on.

That may be a little too extreme but that just goes to show what the general sentiment is regarding US vs. Mexico.

They are so much better that they lost in conditions they are more used to than the US national team. It'd be like the US hosting Mexico in Buffalo every winter and see how the Mexicans do.

And @ Mexico being the undisputed top place in Concacaf with the US being 5th. I guess Honduras & Trinidad/Tobago > US
