Pleasant surprise with World Cup qualifying starting next month. Juergen Klinsmann takes a patchwork lineup (but importantly includes Tim Howard in goal) and gets a 1-0 win at altitude in Mexico City. Merely the first US win on Mexican soil in 75 years of trying.

Mexico was riding high with an Olympic gold by their U-23 team, a Gold Cup win over the US last year and some championships at U-17 levels.

This one is big, and Mexico won't take this very well.

A promising future. Mexico didn't have some of their big guns but neither did USA. That makes wins at Mexico and at Italy. Not bad for the guys.
