USMNT will be facing Mexico in the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers recently. This match is of significant importance for a number of reasons.
The game is a must-win for the American football team. In order to keep their hopes of playing the world cup alive, they must beat Mexico. Both the teams have had ups and downs during their world cup campaign.
The Americans showed a lot of promise initially and pulled off some great games. However, they seemed to be struggling with being consistent as days went by. Thus, it is now a do-or-die scenario for both teams.
The match is expected to be a cracker of an encounter. However, this is not the only reason why the match is important. The upcoming qualifier might be the last time USMNT and Mexico face off in a qualifier.
The world cup qualifying matches between the two arch-rivals have become like a ritual. Thousands of fans wait for the match for years.
Unfortunately, with America hosting the World Cup, chances of the rivalry continuing are bleak. Let us learn more about the story in detail below.
USMNT-Mexico Qualifiers Might Be The Final One
USMNT vs Mexico is one of the biggest rivalries in football history. It is ranked very high on the list of classic matches.
This might be the final time both the teams will be locking horns with each other. One of the main reasons is that both America and Mexico will be hosting the world cup in 2026.
This makes them automatically qualify for the tournament as host nations.
According to reports, Fifa will be expanding the number of teams in the World Cup to forty-eight by 2030.
This will increase the number of automatic qualifications from the CONCACAF group, thus, making it impossible for USMNT and Mexico to meet in the qualifiers.
