Mexico star Sinha mocks USA hype

Mexico midfielder Antonio "Sinha" Naelson has scoffed at the threat of Team USA ahead of their World Cup qualifier. "We can't be afraid of playing soccer against a team that, from my point of view, is not better than the Mexican squad," Sinha said. "We just need to focus on playing as we can, and leave everything else outside the pitch."

The Toluca player thinks the U.S. team has been given much more importance than it really deserves.

"There's too much noise for a team that's not true," he said. "They might be favorites in the game due to playing at home, but for me, Mexico is better as a team."
