Razgriz I hope your wrong, I don't think Mexico should depend on luck as much as skill to defeat Japan. And congrats to the USA I actually thought they would win by more, but a win is a win and the USA is still in the game, good luck against UAE, I know USA has the players to represent the Concacaf well!
