World Cup 2010 Qualifying: Mexico vs. El Salvador


Mexico vs. El Salvador 2009: The Mexicans need just one win to get into next year’s World Cup Finals. A victory over El Salvador tonight at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City, combined with other results, could put El Tri into the top spot.

They are currently second in the group with 15 points, one behind the United States, two ahead of Honduras and three in front of Costa Rica with two games to go.

El Salvador, on the other hand, will be hoping to avoid becoming the second team—after Trinidad and Tobago—to be eliminated.

Yes, La Selecta still has a chance to make it to South Africa. It’s not a very good chance but there is hope for them.

The match kicks-off at 6:00 p.m. ET.

UPDATE: Mexico became the first country in CONCACAF region to clinch a World Cup berth, crushing El Salvador 4-1 in front of a sellout crowd at Estadio Azteca.
