Mexicans Call for Osama

Talk about taking your soccer seriously!

The Mexican crowd hooted "The Star-Spangled Banner." It booed U.S. goals. It chanted "Osama! Osama! Osama!" as U.S. players left the field with a 2-0 victory. And that was in a game against Canada on Thursday before just 1,500 people.

The US soccer team lost a subsequent game to Mexico, and for the first time since 1976 will not qualify for the Olympics.
