PASADENA, California.– The CONCACAF Cup kicks off tonight at the Rose Bowl, pitting arch-rivals USA and Mexico in a clash that will determine which team goes to the 2017 Confederations Cup.
Mexico comes in off a 2015 Gold Cup title, but will be commanded by interim coach Ricardo ‘Tuca’ Ferretti after the firing of Miguel Herrera. Ferretti is expected to instill a bit more defensive-minded approach.
The U.S. enter with its strongest group since the 2014 World Cup, though Alejandro Bedoya’s absence due to illness, which will force Jurgen Klinsmann to shake things up a bit.
