Mexico set for ninth game in USA

Mexico, eight of whose 17 games in 2007 have taken place on U.S. soil, faces Colombia in a friendly in Commerce City, Colo., on Wednesday (TV: live, 10 pm ET, Telemundo). Of its three remaining games this year after the Colombia clash, Mexico will play two in the USA. That means El Tri will have played 11 of its 2007 games in the USA and four in Mexico.

Mexico coach Hugo Sanchez has chosen a young team for the Colombia game to help Mexico's Olympic team prepare for qualifying. Included is 20-year-old Edgar Castillo, who was born and raised in the USA.
