Familiar faces. Familiar result.

An older generation of U.S. men's national team players defeated Mexican rivals of years past, 2-0, in the Legends Game played at the Home Depot Center on Sunday night. Roy Lassiter and Brian McBride scored in the 70-minute match and goalkeeper Ian Feuer came up with several saves to give the Americans their latest dos-a-cero victory.

It was a game that not only brought together old heroes and villains, but one that played out similarly to when these players were in their heyday. Mexico had several chances in the first half, but Feuer denied them time and again.

That opened the door for Lassiter bury the opener in the 50th minute off an assist from John O'Brien. McBride then put the game away for the United States in the 61st with a superb strike from just outside the 18-yard box following a pass from Eric Wynalda.

Some of the other players who partook in the match were Alexi Lalas, Cobi Jones, Paul Caligiuri, Jorge Campos, Jared Borghetti and Francisco Palencia.

What do you think of the United States' latest dos a cero win? Wishing it had been aired on TV?
