Dunivant on U.S. victory over Mexico at Azteca

By Adam Serrano

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- On Wednesday, while the LA Galaxy were playing the Columbus Crew, the United States' national team was making history. 

LA Galaxy captain Landon Donovan and the rest of the U.S. team defeated Mexico on Orange, Calif. native Michael Orozco-Fiscal's 80th minute to win 1-0 for the U.S.' first victory on Mexican soil vs. El Tri. 

Following the U.S.' historic victory, I caught up with Galaxy defender Todd Dunivant, a recipient of two U.S. appearances, for his thoughts on the win.

DUNIVANT: "It's massive, even though it's a friendly and it doesn't really mean anything, it means the world to soccer in the U.S. and the fact that we've never won in Mexico. I think that there's been a lot of talk about how good Mexico has been and how they've suddenly jumped so far ahead of the U.S. and we just had the first time we ever won in Mexico. So it makes quite a statement, it's not to say that suddenly everything is different, but it's a huge statement for our country and I think that everyone is really proud of that."
