The Americans are Making Noise.

by Ryan Fantozzi

No Jozy Altidore and Michael Bradley, no problem for the Americans last night as they beat their biggest rivals Mexico, 2-0. What is even more important the tickets can now be purchased to go watch them in Brazil in 2014 for the World Cup. I was able to watch the most of the game last night and the atmosphere in Columbus, Ohio was electric from the fans goose bump inducing singing of the National Anthem until Landon Donovan put the game away from two yards out in the 79th minute. Obviously soccer isn't the most popular sport in the world. I have heard that all my life and that is fine but what the Americans are doing should not go unnoticed. 

The Americans win last night over Mexico has given them 13 wins in their last 14 matches between Friendly matches, World Cup Qualifying matches and a Gold Cup finals win back in July. Before Friday's 3-1 loss against Costa Rica on Friday the U.S. had won twelve straight games, scoring 39 goals. If you haven't watched a game, you need to. While many people think soccer is boring, this team will get your blood pumping and adrenaline going. They have found the back of the net consistently unlike scoring struggles in the 2006 and 2010 World Cup showings. I suggest getting on board now because summer 2014 the Americans might shock the rest of the world with their improved play.
