I know, I know, dos a cero and Crew Stadium and coaching changes. But this Mexico are like a wounded tiger and the USMNT has its own injury issues. Ergo...

Come on, what else could it be?

El Tri are mentally and motivationally destroyed. Same coaching staff but no "Chepo" – are you kidding me? What’s the difference? The US got this.

All good things eventually come to an end.

The US may be short-handed, not to mention facing an El Tri positively desperate to prove “Chepo” was the side’s weak link, but the World Cup is in their sights and they’ll use a familiar scoreline in Columbus to essentially book their place.

I just can't see this Mexico team not making the World Cup, so things need to change and I expect an inspired performance under new head coach Luis Fernando Tena. Let's be honest: A US side without Altidore, Bradley, Cameron and Besler should be content with that result.

Dos a uno? Why not? Mexico will have a fresher air this time around with Tena, but their lack of concentration in the back line will enable the USMNT to put two in the back of the net. Goals by Landon – who else? – and Eddie Johnson.

Everyone may be down on Mexico, but this is a team that causes major headaches for the USMNT every time they meet. El Tri is talented, fast and motivated and they'll stun a US squad still dazed and confused (tactically) from their suspensions. So much for Columbus home field.

DRAW
1-1

The dos a cero magic has to run out sometime, and there seems no time more likely than now, with the US missing two of their best players in Michael Bradley and Jozy Altidore against a desperate Mexico team. The US have had enough time to game plan without those players so as to avoid the kind of performance they had in Costa Rica, and in the end, a draw will give Mexico a lifeline and keep the US campaign healthy heading into the final two games.
