US-Mexico: Tuesday Press

Grahame Jones of the LA Times sets the stage for this Sunday's clash at the Azteca. As per Colorado and US defender Pablo Mastroeni, "I think we're prepared."

Chris Cowles of the Houston Chronicle points out that the US is 6-2-1 vs. Mexico in the Bruce Arena era, with a 0-1 loss in Mexico City in a WC 2002 qualifier. Salt Lake and US Midfielder Clint Mathis says, "We just have to be prepared to deal with whatever comes at us and hopefully come away with a good result."

The San Bernadino Sun looks at the rivalry through the eyes of Mexican fans. "A loss to the U.S. is still unacceptable," said one fan. "Mexican fans will not admit the U.S. is at their level."
