USA vs. Mexico: What to Watch for in Crucial USMNT Friendly
Jay LaPrete

It's never just a friendly between USA and Mexico. Jurgen Klinsmann's side will take on the Mexican national team in Glendale, Arizona to renew one of the greatest rivalries in international soccer.

Granted, neither team is bringing its "A-team" to the affair, but there's plenty to watch for as the United States men's national soccer team takes the pitch on Wednesday night. With only a few months left until the 2014 FIFA World Cup, there aren't many games left for either nation to play before heading to Brazil. 

Both teams are looking to build some confidence leading up to the World Cup, and a win against a hated rival can do just that. For the U.S., the friendly isn't just a potential momentum-builder. The team has to answer plenty of questions, and this game can help put them to rest.

Here's what you should watch for in the United States' crucial game against Mexico.
