usa mexico 600x394 USMNT vs Mexico, 11:15pm ET Kickoff: Open Thread

The US Men’s National Team plays Mexico tonight at the University of Phoenix Stadium in a friendly match that will be televised live on UniMas, ESPN, WatchESPN and ESPN3.com.

From 11-11:15pm ET, the pre-match coverage will be on ESPN2. The coverage will then switch to ESPN at 11:15pm ET for the game itself. Also ESPN3 will provide exclusive surround coverage, with tactical cam look-ins and views of the American Outlaws and Mexican fans.

Lead soccer play-by-play voice Ian Darke, and analysts Taylor Twellman and Alejandro Moreno will call the match with reporters Jeremy Schaap (USA) and John Sutcliffe (Mexico). Bob Ley, Alexi Lalas, Kasey Keller and ESPNFC.com’s Mexican National Team reporter Tom Marshall will also provide on-site studio analysis beginning with pre-game program at 11 p.m., halftime and post-game segments.

For the United States, the main talking point will be the debut for 19-year-old Julian Green. Head coach Jurgen Klinsmann will have the services of 18-year-old Bayern Munich player Julian Green. The highly talented Green, a dual U.S.-German citizen who has played for the U-19 German National Team, filed for and was granted approval by FIFA to play for the U.S. senior team. Green is no longer eligible to play for Germany.

Before, after and during the match, join the conversation in the comments thread below with soccer fans from around the world.
