USA vs. Mexico 2013: Lineups and Live Game Thread

Kevin C. Cox

It's the U.S., it's Mexico, and it's in Columbus. Bring it.

The stage is set, and the match you've all been waiting four years for is about to begin. The United States will take on Mexico in Columbus, with a chance for the Yanks to clinch qualification for the 2014 World Cup.

The U.S. comes into the match rocked by suspensions, as Matt Besler, Jozy Altidore and Geoff Cameron are both missing due to yellow card accumulation (Besler's suspension is particularly egregious - Joel Campbell is a horrendous cheat). Mexico just changed coaches after the much-maligned tenure of Chepo de la Torre came to an end.
