Having scored both goals in the United States' 2-0 win over Mexico on February 11, 2009, midfielder Michael Bradley explains why Crew Stadium is the only choice to host El Tri in World Cup Qualifying.

"We have history here. For soccer in our country, that's not always the case. Soccer is still in its growing stages. For us to feel like we walk into a stadium and there's history is a special feeling.

The people here in Columbus and this part of the United States love soccer. They love our team. They love the United States. When we come here, when we step out onto this field, there's an overwhelming feeling of American support. 

I think when you play against Mexico, when you play in these types of games where so much is on the line, that can push -- that can help the bar swing our way."
