USA up to 33 in FIFA rankings

The U.S. men's national team's victory over Mexico at Estadio Azteca in last month's friendly was touted as one that closed the gap between the two nations. At the very least, that is most definitely true in terms of FIFA rankings.Â

The United States' win was good for a three-place boost in the FIFA rankings, and it cost Mexico three places as well, as the Americans are up to 33rd in the world, while El Tri is down from 18th to 21st.

Its a busy time of the "summer", orange fans. I put sarcastic quotation marks around "summer" because I am starting my fourth week of school, without a shred of sympathy for grade school children bemoaning the end of their breaks. Also, I'm a bit scienced-out for the week, so I'm going to let Opta add the science to the beautiful game as long as everyone is cool with that.

With an unlikely goal by Michael Orozco Fiscal in the 80th minute of last night's international friendly between Mexico and the United States at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, history was made.

For the first time in its 75 year history, the United States, featuring a young, cobbled together squad, managed to beat their CONCACAF rival, Mexico, on Mexican soil.

The Americans will also be missing some regular roster members due to the schedule of the game in Mexico conflicting with the start of many international leagues.

Tonight the USA Men's National Team played the Mexican National Team in Stadium Azteca. Most people probably could care less about a friendly, even one in Mexico.

I love the opportunities presented to guys who might not normally get the opportunity to get decent minutes against quality competition.
