And when I say to you people that Mexico has performed better on the internaitonal stage I mean that when they play top tier international teams in matches that actually count (not friendlies) they play better then the US. The US has two impressive performances in 09 and not many since/before. They luckily tied England on a lucky goal. They struggled against Algeria til the end. They did pretty bad in 06. Where as Mexico at least was competitive this year in the Confeds. They beat France in 10. Even in the 05 confeds cup they were more pretty competitive.

So they were "competitive" but didn't do shit and beat France who was complete shit in and basically quit the competition before it even started.

You have no support at all for your statement. USA made the confederation cup finals...thats a bit more than competitive.
