The duel between the United States and Mexico in the World Cup qualifiers is at boiling point.
The choice of Donald Trump has not made relations between the countries better.
In the election campaign Trump repeatedly criticized Mexico.
He will make it more difficult for Mexicans to come to the United States. Trump, who beat Democrat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s presidential election, has repeatedly said he wants to build a wall against their neighbors in the south.
– I absolutely think that what has happened in recent months adds an extra dimension to the fight, said the US-captain Michael Bradley to USA Today.
He is the son of former Stabæk coach Bob Bradley, who is now in Swansea. United States and Mexico meet in Columbus on Friday night Norwegian time.
– I sat up late and watched (the election). It all has been incredibly catchy. I have been very interested in this, says Bradley junior.
Support guy Daniel Herrera, a Mexican US resident, said the fight means more than ever.
– Mexico is always desperate to beat the US, but you can double the lust now, says Herrera.
Bradley believes everyone must respect democracy and rally behind the incoming president.
