USA 1975 Retro Football Shirt. The US had eliminated Mexico in 1972, and they vowed that would not happen again. To ensure this, the game was played at Toluca, 8000 feet above sea level. The Americans were serenaded with car horns overnight at their hotel, and possibly because they were concerned that the grass might become dehydrated, the Mexicans thoughtfully soaked the field shortly before the game and drowned it. In these conditions, and with their typical lack of adequate preparations, the US was flattened 8-0.The return match was more even: twice the US took the lead and the Mexicans tied it, before taking control in the 2nd half on their way to a 4-2 victory. Once again, the US was out of the Olympics. Ultimately, East Germany took the gold, Poland took the Silver and the Soviet Union took the bronze.
