U.S. v. Mexico Wildly Popular on TV
Almost 12 million people watched Wednesday’s clash on TV. 1.9 million people tuned in on ESPN2 and another 10.9 million people watched on Univision. The game was awfully popular in California and across the southern half of the United States. It was the most watched U.S. qualifier ever on ESPN2 and the best ratings Univision has ever had for a sporting event.
While certain Mexican fans, officials, and players may claim that the U.S. aren’t up to Mexican standards (results withstanding I guess), many Mexicans were very interested in the latest edition of the of the USA/Mexico battle.
