We're underway from Estadio Azteca for the rivalry match between the United States and Mexico, and the stadium is surprisingly half-empty. It's 7 p.m. in Mexico City where traffic is pretty lame, so we'll give fans the benefit of the doubt. There will probably be more people in the house by the 15th minute of the game.
The United States are playing a bit of an unorthodox lineup and no one was quite sure how they were going to line up. Now that the game is underway, we can tell you! Fabian Johnson is playing right back, while Edgar Castillo is playing left back. The formation going forward isn't obvious quite yet, but it looks like a 4-3-3. We'll have more on that later.
Oh, and it took less than 45 seconds for the United States to give away a dangerous free kick! Good news for the Americas, Angel Reyna puts it right into the wall. Still, not a good start for Jurgen Klinsmann's boys.
