The U.S. Men’s National Team might be playing in only one official friendly during their current January camp, but that does not mean they aren’t playing anybody else.
According to Club Tijuana’s website, the reigning Liga MX champions and the U.S. will square off in a closed-door scrimmage this coming Tuesday at the Home Depot Center. U.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will be using the match to further evaluate the 25 players he has summoned for his current camp, and they could go up against Xolos’ trio of Americans in Edgar Castillo, Joe Corona and Greg Garza.
U.S. Soccer did not immediately respond to SBI when reached for comment.
The U.S. conclude camp with a friendly versus Canada at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston on Jan. 29.
What do you think of the U.S. facing Tijuana in a close-door scrimmage? What starting XI are you hoping Klinsmann goes with? Wishing you could attend to see Xolos’ trio of Americans face the USMNT?
