In beating Mexico 1-0 at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City Wednesday the U.S. Men’s National Team achieved history, winning its first game versus Mexico on Mexican soil.
It was just a friendly match, but its historical significance was not lost on the U.S. players.
American midfielder Maurice Edu tweeted the following photo with the caption, “History makers! 1-0 in Azteca!”
Edu then followed that up with the image below and a “Never said it was easy lol.” (We’re going to assume the presence of an oxygen machine is due to the stadium being located more than 7,000 feet above sea level.)
