W2W4: Belgium vs Mexico



Mexico take on Belgium in Brussels on Friday. It’s a rare “away” game for El Tri who like to play their friendlies in the US. Some say friendlies don’t matter and to a certain extent that will always be the case since they’re not part of an official tournament but how you play in friendlies does matter. With that in mind, here are a couple of things I will be watching for in Friday’s friendly.

This game might be the least exciting rivalry game for me in years but it is still Mexico vs US.
