The United States and Mexico renew one of the best rivalries in the world tonight when they square off at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. The match kicks off at 9 p.m. ET and will be televised live on Fox Sports 1 and UniMas.
Fox Sports 1 will have pre and post-match coverage live from San Antonio. They are on-site with Rob Stone, Eric Wynalda, Stuart Holden and Gonzalo Pineda, while John Strong and Alexi Lalas will be in the booth calling the match. Fox has gone all-in on this match, even having their Champions League studio shows from San Antonio as they hype the match and set up for their coverage so this will be their best effort possible.
This isn't quite the great match-up that we have seen in the past. For one, it's a friendly so the stakes aren't nearly as high as we see when they square off in World Cup qualifiers or the Gold Cup. There are no stakes, besides pride and individuals wanting to move up depth charts. The match is also not on a FIFA international date so clubs were not required to release players for it and both teams have teams made up almost exclusively of players from Liga MX and MLS. It's not the best from each team.
But still, when these teams gets together, it's a big deal. There will be intensity on the pitch and in the stands. The sellout crowd of over 60,000 will only push things further and in a rivalry built on bragging rights and vicious clashes, you know both teams will want to win the latest edition of the border war.
Match date/time: Wednesday, 9 p.m. ET
