U.S. Soccer is hoping that the Dos-a-Cero mojo in Columbus can be put to work one more time. Follow GOAL.COM on Twitter
After defeating Mexico by a 2-0 scoreline in World Cup qualifiers at Crew Stadium in 2001, 2005 and 2009, U.S. Soccer has selected the MLS venue as its host site for the USA-Mexico World Cup qualifier on September 10 -- almost a year to the day that Columbus hosted a semifinal round qualifier between the USA and Jamaica.
U.S. Soccer announced the remaining four host sites for the CONCACAF hexagonal on Thursday, a day before the Americans play their first home game of the round against Costa Rica at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo. They opened the round with a 2-1 loss at Honduras last month.
The next home game after Friday's bout, June 11 against Panama, will be played at Seattle's CenturyLink Field followed by a June 18 tilt against Honduras at Salt Lake City's Rio Tinto Stadium.
The Mexico match in Columbus will be followed by an Oct. 11 home finale against Jamaica at Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan., and the Americans will finish their qualifying run on the road four days later in Panama.
