On August 15, 2012, the USMNT silenced the Azteca Stadium and ended Mexico's unbeaten record at the Coloso de Santa Úrsula. A single goal from Michael Orozco in the 80th minute gave Team USA their only home win for the Mexican national team.

Before that game, Mexico had been practically unbeatable in their building, cause the only defeat in the qualifying rounds was against Costa Rica, prior to Korea-Japan 2002. But that night in 2012, the Stars and Stripes team was the first Announcement of the precipitous fall experienced by the Mexico National Team.

Mexico tilted the court, with 66% of possession and almost tripled the number of shots (19 to 3), but they could not break the bolt that Tim threw Howard to his goal, and on a rebound from a set piece, Michael Orozco sent it to save 10 minutes to finish, to give their country what remains the only victory for the USMNT in Mexico.
