The U.S. men’s national team is back in the states and looks to keep its 20-game unbeaten streak alive when they play Mexico at the Alamodome on Wednesday night. The match will be the 64th annual match between the two clubs and can be seen on FOX Sports 1, UniMás and Univision Deportes Network.

In their previous match, the U.S. fought to a 1-1 draw with Switzerland. Defender Brek Shea scored the lone goal off a free kick in the 45th minute, but Valentin Stocker knotted things up for Switzerland in the 80th minute.

The U.S. will be without Clint Dempsey, who is out with a hamstring strain, and forward Jozy Altidore who will be serving a one-match suspension. The two clubs last met on April 4, 2014 in Arizona where they played to a 2-2 draw. Michael Bradley and Chris Wondolowski had goals for the U.S., while Rafael Marquez and Alan Pulido scored for Mexico.

Overall, the U.S. is 17-32-14 all-time against Mexico, and is unbeaten in their last five matches. Since 2000, the U.S. are 12-5-5 against Mexico, including a record of 10-2-4 at home.

The U.S. and Mexico will kick things off tonight at 7:30 p.m. inside the Alamodome. Check back to Red Black 90 following the match for a game recap.
