US to play Mexico at Philadelphia on Aug. 10

The United States will play Mexico in a soccer exhibition at

Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Aug. 10, the first game

for the teams since El Tri overcame a two-goal deficit against the

Americans to win the CONCACAF Gold Cup final 4-2 last month.

The game is on a FIFA fixture date, meaning clubs are required

to release players. However, with the German Bundesliga opening

Aug. 5 and the English Premier League eight days later, some teams

may discourage players from returning to the U.S.

The U.S. Soccer Federation announced the match Friday. Preparing

for the start of 2014 World Cup qualifying in June, the Americans

play Costa Rica on Sept. 2 at Carson, Calif., then meet Belgium on

Sept. 6 at Brussels.
