US, Mexico to renew rivalry Aug. 15 in Mexico City

The U.S. soccer team will face rival Mexico on Aug. 15 in Mexico

City, the first exhibition between the two on Mexican soil in

nearly 28 years.

The Americans are still seeking their first win south of the

border in a series that dates to 1934. Mexico is 23-0-1 against the

U.S. on its home turf, most recently earning a pair of 2-1

victories in FIFA World Cup qualifying in 2005 and 2009. The U.S.

is 15-32-12 overall against Mexico.

The last time the U.S. played a friendly in Mexico, the

Americans lost 2-1 on Oct. 17, 1984.

The United States currently leads Group A in CONCACAF qualifying

for the 2014 World Cup with four points after two matches.
