USMNT vs. Mexico: Lineups and match thread

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The United States and Mexico are at the Alamodome in San Antonio, TX. The field is a joke, neither team has their best players and it's just a friendly. But it's the biggest rivalry in CONCACAF and someone may throw a punch so yeah, it's still matters.

Jurgen Klinsmann has opted for a 4-4-2 with a diamond midfield. That's not much of a surprise, but starting Jordan Morris up top is. He's still at Stanford, not even a professional, and he's starting against Mexico. He'll be paired with Gyasi Zardes and hoping like hell that Michael Bradley can be good as an attacking midfielder to provide some quality service.

In all, the most interesting thing may be the number of Mexican-Americans in the team. They litter the roster, including making up the heart of the U.S. defense. We'll see how they do against the country of their parents and grandparents.

United States: Rimando; Yedlin, Gonzalez, Alvarado, Garza; Beckerman, Diskerud, Corona, Bradley; Zardes, Morris.

Mexico: Saucedo; Salcedo, Maza, Mier; Velarde, Esquivel, Montes, Osuna, Flores; E. Herrera, Cubo
