ATLANTA, GEORGIA—The largest post-pandemic soccer crowd between Latin rivals Mexico and Honduras ends up in a scoreless draw at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium last June 12.
The highly anticipated soccer match lived up to its billing as 70,072 soccer fans troop to watch the two soccer-crazy nations battle each other.
However, the friendly soccer match did not register well for both teams and the fans as the game ended in a scoreless draw.
Coming off a thrilling 3-2 extra-time defeat to rivals the United States in the inaugural Nations League final last week, Mexico started strong and had many times attempted to score a goal against Honduras.
However, the Honduran soccer squad proved to the world that they are no fluke and foiled all goal attempts of Mexico.
The only consolation on the match is the huge number of soccer fans who watch the game which almost broke the record-setting 70,511 tickets sold or distributed in the 2-1 win of Mexico over Panama in the semifinals of the Gold Cup still at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2015.
The huge number of soccer fans it accommodated also showed that the Mercedes-Benz Stadium is also ready to host much bigger international soccer events in the future.
