USA will try to win in Mexico for the first time when they visit Mexico City for a 15 August friendly against their rivals.

The friendly between the regional foes on Mexican soil will be staged at Estadio Azteca, with the Americans having lost 23 matches and drawn once in Mexico-staged matches. Mexico's overall lead in the rivalry, which began in 1934, stands at 32-15 with 12 drawn.

"Mexico has proven to be one of the top teams in the world in the moment so for us this is a huge opportunity," USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann said.

The chance to be challenged in an environment like Estadio Azteca will be another important experience for the development of our players.

"The US and Mexico have a very special rivalry and the chance to be challenged in an environment like Estadio Azteca will be another important experience for the development of our players."

The match should give both sides a look at where they stand before entering the last four matches of the penultimate round of CONCACAF regional qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup™.

Mexico and USA are likely to be among the six teams that advance to next year's final round of qualifying after two more matches in both September and October.
