Mexico vs USA live stream, date, time, channels

The teams currently hold two of the three automatic qualification spots in the CONCACAF qualifying process, behind Canada in first place. 

Both Mexico and the USA have 21 points after 11 matches. They have both won six, drawn three, and lost two matches in the qualifying campaign. As a result, the USA are in second on goal difference alone. Panama are in fourth place, just four points behind Mexico. 

Neither side has much margin for error at the Azteca stadium. Finishing fourth would mean a one-match playoff against the winner of the Oceania region’s qualification competition. As things stand, that is most likely to be New Zealand.

The two teams both won their last qualifier match, too. Mexico defeated Panama 1-0 thanks to a penalty from Wolves forward Raul Jimenez. Goals from Weston McKennie of Juventus, Walker Zimmerman and Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic gave the USMNT a 3-0 win over Honduras.

The USA have some serious injury concerns heading into the Mexico vs USA live stream. Barcelona’s Segino Dest has a hamstring injury and McKennie will not feature again this season due to a broken foot. Goalkeeper Matt Turner is also out injured, while Manchester City’s Zack Steffen is back in the squad. Elsewhere, Aaron Long returns to the squad for the first time in more than a year, while Erik Palmer-Brown has received his first call up.

Mexico are not without injury issues of their own. Captain Andres Guardado is out with a thigh problem, while Rogelio Funes Mori and Julio Cesar Dominguez will also not be fit enough to take part.

Here's how they line up:

Mexico: Ochoa, Sánchez, Montes, Vásquez, Arteaga, Herrera, Alvarez, Rodríguez, Lozano, Jiménez, Corona

USA: Steffen, Yedlin, Zimmerman, Adams (c), Robinson, Musah, Pepi, Pulisic, Robinson, Weah, Acosta 

The USA defeated Mexico 2-0 in the reverse fixture. Doing so again would put them in a very strong position to qualify for Qatar 2022. It’s going to be a tough challenge in an iconic stadium. Although inconsistent on their travels, Mexico have not lost a home qualifying match this campaign.

Can this exciting generation of American players change that, or will the home side continue their form in what is sure to be an intense atmosphere? Find out by watching the Mexico vs USA live stream, and we will show you how below.
