   June 21, 2012 (2:40 PM) by Matt Benson     Email This Post Email This Post

It has been rumored for the last couple months, but US Soccer officially announced the August 15 “friendly” against Mexico at Azteca Stadium.

Giddy up.

The US is 0-23-1 all-time on Mexican soil.

    First game against Mexico, in Mexico, since 1984. We have what it takes, lets get a win.

  2. Ufficio says:

    Er, we played in Azteca in 2009 (and a bunch of other times since 1984).

  3. Matt says:

    It is the first friendly against Mexico in Mexico since 1984.

  4. Trent Hill says:

    Sorry, I meant friendly. Brainfart.

    I would like to see a mixture of vets and fringe players for this game.

    I don’t want to see the entire “A” team for this game. We need to find out which young fringe players are ready to contribute to the USMNT now.

    This is my 21 man roster.
    GK: Guzan, Hamid
    Defense: Lichaj, S.Williams, Cameron, John, Boca, Ream, Johnson
    Middies: Adu, Corona, D.Williams, Holden, Bradley, Jones
    FWDS: Bruin, Wooten, Shea, Pontius, Donovan, Gatt

    Let Boyd get settled in with his new club.
    Dempsey is a possibility, but we all know wht he is capable of. The same with Altidore.
    Torres for Holden if he is not ready for international soccer just yet.

    I picked Bruin over Agudelo and Sapong because Bruin is scoring goals, and has looked better than both of them this season.

    ^your an idiot^
    You dont figure out “fringe” players against mexico
    Also no dancing bear!

  7. LaMichael says:

    any game against mexico is a battle to the death. We need our A+ team to avenge (even if only slightly) the gold cup loss.

  8. 2tone says:

    @ Chris- You really think both teams are going to use their “A” teams. Don’t be a douche because you disagree with something. Does it make your day to call someone an idiot on the internet. Grow-up, and stop trying to be a “big man” on a soccer forum!

  9. 2tone says:

    Oh, and it’s you’re which means you are not “your.”

  10. Chris says:

    Yes both teams will use their best sides. Like a previous comment said it is a fight to the death. Id expect this group:

    howard, rimando, guzan
    bocanegra, goodson, onyewu, john, cherundolo, johnson, chandler, lichaj
    jones, williams, bradley, edu, torres, shea, dempsey, adu
    altidore, gomez, donovan, agudelo
