The U.S. men's national team will take on Mexico on Aug. 10th at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, U.S. Soccer revealed on Friday.
The match-up is a rematch of the 2011 Gold Cup Final, won by Mexico, 4-2, in June.
The "friendly" is the third friendly scheduled by U.S. Soccer since the Gold Cup, with the Americans taking on Costa Rica and Belgium.
The friendly could give us the return to national team action of midfielder Stuart Holden and defender/midfielder Timmy Chandler, who both missed the Gold Cup.Holden's inclusion is probably less likely given the fact he's still recovering from the serious knee injury that has kept him out of U.S. national team action all year.
Mexico has won the past three meetings between the countries, including the past two Gold Cup Finals. The sides haven't met in a friendly since 2008, when the teams tied, 2-2, in Houston.
What do you think of the USA playing Mexico? Excited? Not a fan of the idea? Plan to be there?
