How the USMNT should line up versus Mexico: Sergino Dest to start, but will Josh Wynder or Caleb Wiley join him?
Wednesday night's clash may not feel like a typical match between the U.S. men's national team and Mexico, but it could offer a glimpse into the future of what this rivalry could look like.
Both the U.S. and Mexico arrived in Arizona this week with young, inexperienced, largely domestic-based squads as they usher in new eras. Mexico's has officially begun under Diego Cocca, while the USMNT's is something of a work in progress, with interim boss Anthony Hudson still in charge.
Neither team will have its heavy-hitters, with European players out of the picture, but several young stars could continue their rise with this midweek friendly. That's especially true for the USMNT, who have several high-potential players in camp that should be Europe-bound sooner rather than later.
