The U.S. men's soccer team beat Mexico, 1-0, at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, ending 75 years of successive losses on Mexican soil. The first-ever win in Mexico also ended a 24-game losing streak by the U.S. defender Michael Orozco Fiscal, who scored the game's only goal in the 80th minute. U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard blocked Mexico's stepped-up efforts to even the score in the final 10 minutes. "It's huge for, I think, all American fans, it's huge for the team, and it's historic," said U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann.
