Mexico vs Sweden Live International Friendlies 28/1/2009

The live commentary and live online radio broadcast international friendly match between Mexico and Sweden at Estadio Azteca should provide the hosts with a rare victory in recent times. Mexico have not done well recently and this live international friendly online streaming football game must end positively for them. If they fail again to convince their supporters in the live commentary and live online TV telecast international friendly match between Mexico and Sweden at Estadio Azteca that they are improving, then the criticism will start to grow stronger.

Sweden will not be with all their best players in the live commentary and live streaming radio broadcast international friendly match between Mexico and Sweden at Estadio Azteca as they tour the Americas. Sweden might also be more tired in this live international friendly online streaming soccer game having played on Sunday. They will not give any excuses though in the live commentary and live streaming TV telecast international friendly match between Mexico and Sweden at Estadio Azteca and hope to get at least a draw.

After beating Sweden on Saturday night in its first match of the year and only tuneup before World Cup qualifying begins, the U.S. men's national team now stands just 17 days away from its crucial qualifying showdown vs. Mexico.

That means we can start thinking about which 11 players Bob Bradley will call on to start in the latest installment of 'La Guerra Fria'. As much as there are some young and inexperienced players that U.S. fans would like to see get a chance to place, you can bet that Bradley will be calling on a mostly experienced squad to take the field at Crew Stadium.

Barring injuries, the defense and goalkeeper should be easy enough to predict. The front six is also pretty easy to call, especially after Sacha Kljestan made a very strong case for inclusion with his hat-trick against Sweden.

So what lineup should we see against Mexico? Here is what the lineup should look like barring injuries:






Positions that you can say are up in the air include left back, where Heath Pearce gets the nod, and central midfield, where Kljestan should be the choice. Pearce has struggled for minutes with Hansa Rostock, and also had some shaky moments in 2008 qualifying, but he's still the pick ahead of Jonathan Bornstein.

Kljestan gets the nod ahead of the likes of Ricardo Clark and Maurice Edu to start alongside Michael Bradley. Kljestan and Bradley work well together, with Bradley being able to provide the defensive cover to let Kljestan focus more on attack, but Kljestan's improved defensive work is really what makes him a viable option vs. Mexico.

Brian Ching will get the nod, and showed against Sweden why he should. He doesn't score as many goals as you would like, but he makes his teammates better, is a constant threat to draw dangerous free kicks and his defensive work is unmatched. He also works very well with Landon Donovan, a partnership that could prove very instrumental to the U.S. team's chances of breaking down Mexico's defense.

Who would get the call if Ching wouldn't? If Ching were unavailable you would have to go with Jozy Altidore, who hasn't gotten minutes in recent weeks for Villarreal, but who is still the best option among the remaining forward options. You will recall his header goal in the last USA-Mexico match a year ago.

Steve Cherundolo is the pick at right back, but if a lingering hamstring injury keep him out, Bob Bradley will have an interesting decision to make between veteran right back Frankie Hejduk and young but promising Marvell Wynne.

Some might be surprised to see Beasley included considering he isn't playing at all for Rangers, but he is still far and away the best option at left wing. Eddie Lewis might have been an option in the past but with memories of him getting torched at Guatemala still fresh, it would be tough to imagine him getting the call ahead of a healthy Beasley. Jose Francisco Torres would certainly be a favorite to start if Beasley were unavailable, but he is more likely to see playing time in central midfield as a substitute.

There are questions about whether it will be Donovan up top and Dempsey on the right wing, or vice versa, but it's safe to say that Dempsey's form on the right for Fulham and Donovan's form at forward for Bayern Munich will make their deployment easy enough for Bob Bradley to decide on.

What do you think of the above lineup's chances against Mexico? Are you confident the group can secure a victory? What positions worry you? Which change would you make to the above lineup?

He hasnt called in those players, so far. the only two you got right are kljestan and ching. and he only has until feburary 7th to call in the big guns. im confident he will call them in but as the days keep going by that confidence dwindles. Bob Bradley needs to go ahead and call in the full team. not just two and the rest more or less rookies to the international game style.
