DSC_8314The U.S. Men's National Team will be back in action against rival Mexico on Wednesday night at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

The match, which kicks off at 10:22 p.m. eastern and will be broadcast on TBS, Telemundo, Universo, HBO Max and Peacock, is the inaugural Allstate Continental Clásico.

It will mark the 75th meeting between the continental rivals. The U.S. is 17-9-7 against El Tri since 2000 though Mexico holds the overall advantage in the series dating back to 1934.  

Though the roster for the U.S. does not have any local ties, nine of the 26 players that were on the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar are on the team. Three players eligible for the upcoming FIFA Under-20 World Cup are on the team: defenders Caleb Wiley, Joshua Wynder and Cade Cowell. Midfielder Aidan Morris gives the roster a fourth player who would be age eligible for the U.S. at the Olympics next summer in Paris. 

The Allstate Continental Clásico is a new annual event that features the USMNT hosting a top-tier opponent from North, Central or South America.
