USA Vs. Mexico: Friendly Is Helpful For El Tri, As Well - FMF State Of Mind

While Jurgen Klinsmann debut as the coach of the United States National Team will surely be the focus of Wednesday's friendly against Mexico, there are plenty of other story lines worth following. On the Mexican side, for instance, there are several position battles, one of which is at fullback, according to FMF State of Mind:

At the fullback spots, there's also a likely battle brewing. Efrain Juarez and Carlos Salcido played well at the Gold Cup, but it would be unfair for them to be locked into the starting XI. Both Jose Torres Nilo and Paul Aguilar are in absolutely fantastic form in the Mexican Primera over the last couple of years, and both are very deserving of starting places if Juarez and Salcido are not playing regularly or not playing well for their club teams over in Europe.

FMFSoM also points out that there's a nice little battle brewing at forward where Aldo de Nigris is out with injury and Omar Arellano and Oribe Peralta are fighting for roster spots.
