Cheesehead_Dave: PIP with the Mexican announcers:  "We love you forever and ever! God bless America!"

The video looks to have been pulled, but someone put together a rough translation:

"GOOOOAAAAAAL The US of A PUTS us in the playoffs!!!!!" USA!
"It is because of the USA that we are being placed in the playoff ...BECAUSE OF THEM , NOT DUE TO YOU..NOT ANY OF YOU in the green shirts ....IT WAS THEM!!.NOT YOU!..THEY DID IT!!!!!NOT YOU! remember this forever..... KEEP THIS CLEARLY IN MIND FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES! You do NOTHING for the shirt, you do NOT put the effort, you have NOTplaced us in the playoffs , you HAVE NOT placed us in the WORLD CUP ..YOU WOULD NOT HAVE KEPT US ALIVE....IT WAS ESTADOS UNIDOS, NOT YOU.! .NOT YOU AND YOUR ARROGANCE/CONCEIT.....NOT YOU AND YOUR INFAMY....NOT YOU AND YOUR MORONS/PUNKS....
"IT IS A FAILURE.....and UNDESERVED -to go through to the playoff- WE HAD NO ARGUMENTS to earn the playoffs, THE USA, WITH SUBS , WITH MANY SUBS as the visiting team shows us once again what the USA is all about to play the game with dignity, how to approach the sport..MExico is a horror, just terrible....A FAILURE....
THE USA HAS SURPASSED US ..They are better than Mexico in SOCCER ....THEY EVEN HAVE THE LUXURY OF PLAYING THEIR SUBS and KEEPING US LIVE.... I hope our coach wears the pants and resigns..He has failed as coach...."

And every Mexican media outlet was venting anger at the Mexican team for being in that position. Every single one of them.

The Mexican soccer association should be beyond embarrassed. Their team was a joke from start to finish this year. And when you get right down to it, that bicycle kick on Friday saved their ass. If that ball doesn't go in and the match ends in a draw, assuming Tuesday's results stayed the same; Panama would've still been in the playoff on goals scored.

But instead; they're thanking Uncle Sam, Orozco is on some newspaper covers and everyone is wondering if they really can beat the Kiwis in the playoff. How the once mighty Mexicans have fallen.

kevinatilusa: 2 wins and 7 goals in 10 matches, and Mexico's still got a good shot at a World Cup spot.

If you don't like it, talk to the Panamanian defenders, not us.

LucklessWonder: But Northern Ireland isn't part of "Britain," it's a part of the United Kingdom and the person I responded to said "brits"

/Geography pedantry is best pedantry

I'm sure there are enclaves in Northern Ireland who wouldn't consider that distinction pedantic.
