As it was said by Sunil Gulati after the United States men’s national team defeated Trinidad and Tobago earlier in September, the USMNT will host arch-rivals Mexico in Columbus at MAPFRE Stadium on November 11 to kick off the CONCACAF Hexagonal.

It’ll be another huge occasion between Mexico and the U.S. in Columbus. The previous 500 times they’ve played each other in Columbus, the USMNT have won 2-0 (don’t fact check that). Can they do it again?
2016 has been a resurgent year for the national team, while Mexico has hit a tiny rough patch magnified by a 7-0 drubbing at the hands of Chile in the Copa America. But, we all know that records and form fly out the window when these two teams meet. It should be a very interesting night in Columbus.
