Mexico found itself wearing the odd hat of United States supporter Tuesday night.
After dropping a 2-1 decision to Costa Rica on the final day of World Cup qualifying, El Tri needed the U.S. to knock off Panama — in a game that was being played simultaneously — to have any hope of earning a spot in Brazil. The U.S. did just that, scoring twice in stoppage time to win 3-2, and the Mexican television announcers calling their game promptly lost their minds.
Mexico will now have one final shot at qualifying when it takes New Zealand in a home-and-home series next month.
Hear the final call, which makes Patriots radio commentator Scott Zolak sound positively reserved, in the video below.
