USA vs. Mexico: Lineups and match thread


Andrew Caballero-Reynolds

The United States and Mexico are all set for their friendly at University of Phoenix Stadium. It will be the last friendly for both teams before World Cup training camp and with both Jurgen Klinsmann and Miguel Herrera leaning heavily on domestic players, this match takes on far more significance than most non-FIFA date friendlies.

Klinsmann has pulled a few surprises with his lineup, the most notable being his decision not to start Landon Donovan. He will be on the bench, as will DeAndre Yedlin, who most expected to start at right back with Brad Evans out, but Tony Beltran gets the nod instead. Between the two of them and a probably Julian Green substitution, the second half should have plenty worth watching.

The match gets underway at 11 p.m. ET and will be live on ESPN.

United States: Nick Rimando, Tony Beltran, Omar Gonzalez, Matt Besler, Michael Parkhurst; Graham Zusi, Michael Bradley, Kyle Beckerman, Brad Davis; Chris Wondolowski, Clint Dempsey.

Mexico: Moises Muñoz; Rogelio Chavez, Juan Carlos Valenzuela, Rafa Márquez, Maza, Miguel Layún; Jesus Zavala, Carlos Peña, Isaac Brizuela; Alan Pulido, Marco Fabián.
