Team USA might have benefited from the snow in their win against Costa Rica, but unless there's a blizzard coming that everyone missed, they won't have that luxury in Mexico. Tonight's World Cup qualifier in Estadio Azteca is a daunting one for Team USA, which is 0-5-1 in qualifiers when visiting Mexico. Can the U.S. pull off a win this time?
