The USMNT defeated Mexico for a third time in 2021 with a familiar scoreline resulting in Dos a Cero chants in the stadium and around the internet.
For USA soccer, the only thing better than a victory over Mexico is when it comes by the best scoreline of them all.
Dos a cero.
When Weston McKennie beat the keeper to make it 2-0, the fans at TQL Stadium went wild with that epic chant.
Even the studio hosts were in on it.
What does Dos a Cero mean?
Why do USA soccer fans chant “Dos a Cero”? Quite simply it’s the scoreline.
Dos a Cero means two to zero in Spanish. It’s a message to Mexico in their own language and it’s been chanted by American fans since at least the 2002 World Cup victory by that scoreline.
Twitter celebrated yet another Dos a Cero victory
Fans who weren’t in Cincinnati for the game still got in on the Dos a Cero celebrations.
It all got going when Christian Pulisic came off the bench to provide an instant spark for Team USA. He scored the opening goal just five minutes after taking the field.
With Zack Steffen proving impervious in goal, McKennie’s goal to make it 2-0 all but sealed the deal. It didn’t matter that Miles Robinson received a red car in the 89th minute. The USMNT saw out the win.
The United States is now sitting at the top of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying standings with 14 points. The victory makes it all the more likely the Americans will be heading to Qatar for the 2022 World Cup.
