Way to go, U.S men's national soccer team

By beating Mexico 2-0 and getting some help from Panama, who tied Honduras, the U.S. men's national soccer team qualified for the World Cup next year in Brazil.

The team didn't have a lot of drama associated with this qualifying run, except for the snow job they pulled on Costa Rica during their home game in Denver.  Costa Rica got revenge a few days ago with a great home win (and key U.S. midfielder Michael Bradley out after tweaking an ankle on loose turf just before the game).

Mexico has never been a particularly easy game for the U.S. - they had a long history of losing to Mexico, particularly under important circumstances.  After the disappointing game against Costa Rica, they had to play well.  And they did, apparently.  Eddie Johnson can SKY for a header, that's very clear.

Next we have to see how England is doing in the World Cup qualifying.
