Mexico City: America's soccer team is getting some love from the most unlikely place: Mexican sports fans.

   




Mexican newspapers on Wednesday published banner headlines reading "We Love You," and "Thank You, USA," after the U.S. kept Mexico's World Cup qualifying hopes alive with a 3-2 victory over Panama.
   
Mexico and the U.S. are usually bitter rivals. Feelings are so strong in Mexico that fans chanted the name of Osama bin Laden as the Star Spangled Banner played in a 2004 Olympic qualifying game.
   
Mexico lost its Tuesday match 2-1 against Costa Rica. If Panama had held onto its lead and beaten the United States, Mexico would have been eliminated from the World Cup qualifying rounds. But the U.S. scored two goals in the closing minutes of the match to pull ahead.
