  1. Embarrassing that the US can’t sell out the little MLS stadium, but Mexico can sell out the massive NRG Stadium

      • It’s about the fact that the US has a very small fan base. They aren’t even the most popular national team in the US. Mexico are. This is the problem that US Soccer needs to address and take on.

      • Say 5 years ago when the US was the better side and Mexico nearly missed the WC but for two late goals in a match that was meaningless to the US, Mexico still easily would outdraw the US. It’s cultural not aesthetic.
