U.S. National Team prepare for World Cup qualifier match against Mexico

It doesn't get any bigger than this.

The United States will take on Mexico on Tuesday in an important World Cup qualifier that will help determine whether or not the two countries can qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. With a victory over Mexico and a Honduras win or draw against Panama will put the U.S. through to Brazil. Meanwhile, Mexico is reeling as El Tri fell 3-2 to Honduras last week -- leading to the dismissial of head coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" De La Torre -- and currently sit in fourth place in World Cup qualifying just a point ahead of fifth place Panama.
