Thanks to the United States men’s soccer team, Mexico will now advance to a qualifier for next year’s world cup. Tuesday night, the U.S. team managed to beat Panama in their home, keeping Mexico at fourth place overall, despite a loss to Costa Rica.
Announcers reacted to Graham Zusi’s goal against Panama to tie it 2-2. Shortly afterwards, Aron Johannsson clinched the win with a third goal, reports ESPN.
From the sounds of these announcers though, you’d think the U.S. singlehandedly won a revolution for them. The announcers even at one point yell, “We love you! We love you forever and ever!” followed by “God bless America!”
After the goal, “Gracias USA” was trending on Twitter. Now Mexico will go on to face New Zealand to attempt to secure a slot in Brazil.
