FYI....we have never won at Azteca...and have one draw....so I would think without a top-side we have no chance at all and it will be tough even with our A side....almost the entire Mexican side is domestic based....
Much more here:Roster selection for this one is tricky. Although the match falls on a FIFA fixture date, European-based players are preparing for the start of league play.
The English Premier League, for instance, begins three days later. So would Klinsmann burden a club by requesting a starter for five days leading to the league opener? Presumably, Klinsmann will select at least one goalkeeper from England: Tim Howard (Evertonís first choice) or Brad Guzan (Aston Villaís second choice) to face El Tri.
Germany, on the other hand, wonít relaunch the Bundesliga season until Aug. 24. Michael Bradley and Roma donít open until the 26th.
The friendly is important, though, because a pair of 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Jamaica await: in Kingston on Sept. 7 and in Columbus four days later. There arenít many opportunities during the year to bring the forces together, so Klinsmann would want to assemble most of his regulars.
