[DATEBOOK] The USA and Mexico will play for first friendly since 2008 when they meet Aug. 10 at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Kickoff for the teams’ first meeting in a friendly since 2008 is set for 9 p.m. ET, and the match will be broadcast live on ESPN2, and Univision.

The game will be a rematch of the 2011 Gold Cup final won by Mexico, 4-2.

    Boycott this game in person and on TV.

    Boycott? But I am so looking forward to Bradley's dynamic pre-game comments and insightful post-game platitudes--not to mention the game itself, of course--minus our Eurostars, could be absolutely thrilling, er, soul-killing!

    Why are we minus our Eurostars? It's being played on a FIFA date. Or did our federation say something to that effect that I missed?

    Mexico should stop playing these meaningless games for money. They should be playing top 10 teams now from on. USA should try their luck vs 30+ rank teams. That makes sense for both now.

    Couldn't agree more with Luis. No reason to show or watch this game. Cynical profit-taking by the federations.
