    This is very smart from Der Kaiser. Most of the players have experienced Azteca many times. The coaching staff need to be in that beast before they play a meaningful game there.

    Going to be a tough game, Mexico just beat Brazil 2-0, while USA was thrashed 4-1 and unfortunately have not played convincingly in their World Cup Qualifiers.

    This is a better warmup for USA than it is for Mexico. Mexico is on another level right now. USA will play its 2 most important games this year right after v Jamaica. Mexico has 2 good ones vs Costa Rica who is playing well. What a shame that Costa Rica and El Salvador got Mexico in the same group. These 2 teams deserve to be in final round. Why doesn't Conmebol and Concacaf come together and become on entity like Uefa?
