The United States Men’s National Team won’t wait long to face off against its biggest rival. U.S. Soccer announced today that the USMNT will face Mexico in a friendly September 6th at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.

The two teams just faced each other in the Gold Cup final on July 7th in Chicago, Mexico winning that match, and the Gold Cup, 1-0. Before that, it was a Tyler Adams strike that was the difference in a 1-0 victory for the USMNT last September 11th in Nashville.

Mexico holds a 35-19-15 advantage over the USMNT all time, however it was in the 2000s where the USMNT dominated Mexico, going 10-4-2 during that decade. During this decade, it has been dead even: 4-4-4. This match will determine who will have the best record over the other for the 2010s in just the latest chapter in this rivalry.
