    Everywhere around Cowboys Stadium in Arlington on Sunday, there was plenty of red, green, white and a few splashes of yellow.

    Thousands of fans poured out of the Stadium shortly after Mexico defeated Brazil 2-0. Many set up food and music in the parking lots both before and after the game.

    "A lot of people couldn't get tickets so we chilled outside and had a great time outside," tailgater Jeff Montalvo said.  Montalvo wanted Mexico to win.

    This is the third time Mexico played soccer and sold out Cowboys Stadium.  The team closed out its 5-game U.S. tour here.
