    The indictment of the Mexican team that ensues is amazing in its vitriol, too:

    “You’ve done nothing for the shirt.”

    Graham Zusi is dead to me.

    In a few words, Martinoli said: All of you are a f*cking piece of sh*te, you don’t deserve wearing the shirt, “european players” never do anything, this oportunity is thanks to USA, NO TO YOU!

    Everybody laugh at us worldwide, we are so embarrased…
    Sorry for my english :(

    If Panama had won that game, they would be even with Mexico in amount of points (11) and goals difference (-2) in the final table.
    Does that mean that 2 direct matches agg. between Mexico and Panama worth less than goals scored in general, counting other rivals?
    I mean – firstly there was a draw, then Mexico won by the fucking chilena and still there was Panama to play against New Zealand because of the 3 more goals scored (10 to 7)? Someone ensure me of that fact or maybe tell me where my maths is wrong.
