USMNT-Mexico to renew rivalry on Sept. 11

Leave a comment

The USMNT will renew its rivalry with Mexico for the first time since World Cup qualifying when El Tri pays a September 11 visit to Nashville.

Mexico will be coming off its World Cup run, while the U.S. summer consists of friendlies against Bolivia, Ireland, and France.

The federation did not announce when tickets would go on sale, or how they would be allotted, saying that information will come at a later date.

The U.S. is winless in its last three matches against Mexico, with two losses to go with the 1-1 draw at Estadio Azteca in June 2017.

Theoretically, the Yanks will be facing the Mexico test with a new permanent coach. Dave Sarachan has been running the ship since Bruce Arena resigned after an embarrassing loss at Trinidad and Tobago which kept the U.S. from reaching the World Cup.

Mexico is in tricky World Cup Group F with Germany, South Korea, and Sweden.
