Mexico to play on Tuesday in Arizona in Gold Cup semi-final

GLENDALE, AZ – Team Mexico’s national soccer team is as popular in the Tucson area (if not more) than the United States when it comes to the number of die-hard fans.  The border neighbors (USA & Mexico) are both just one victory away from meeting in the Gold Cup Championship game in Chicago.  Meanwhile, Tuesday evening in Glendale, a near-sellout is expected as Mexico will take on Haiti in the Gold Cup semi-finals.  Hundreds of Tucsonans are expected to make the drive north to the Phoenix area for the game.  USA will battle it out against Jamaica in Nashville, Tennessee.
