The Valley’s gearing up to host the Super Bowl and its accompanying parties next January. Yawn. Holler at us when we finally land the insane international fiesta that is the FIFA World Cup. Until then, the U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team vs. Team Mexico on Wednesday, April 2, will have to do.
There’s a lot on the line for U.S. and Mexico, both having qualified for the La Copa Mundial 2014 in Brazil. Each team’s respective coach will be particularly eagle-eyed in watching player performance to make their final selections for their national teams. Plus, the regional rivalry has heated up in recent years, with the U.S. shutting out Mexico 2-0 last September.
The U.S. Men’s National Soccer Team faces Mexico at University of Phoenix Stadium, 1 Cardinals Drive in Glendale. Kickoff is at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $42 to $275. Visit www.ussoccer.com for more information.
