BRISTOL, Conn---Wednesday night's World Cup qualifying match between the United States and Mexico was seen in an average of 794,800 homes based on a 0.8 rating, making it the most-watched FIFA World Cup qualifier on ESPN2 (26 matches).

The match, a 2-0 victory by the U.S. on a pair of goals by Michael Bradley, marked the third straight FIFA World Cup final round qualifying matchup in Columbus between the two teams.
In the first meeting Feb. 28, 2001 - dubbed the "Guerra Fria" ('Cold War') because the game-time temperature topped out at 29 degrees - for the 2002 World Cup, the U.S. won 2-0. Four years later, Sept. 3, 2005, the U.S. team earned a place in the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany with another 2-0 victory over Mexico.
