With the USA facing Mexico in a few weeks in the first CONCACAF hexagonal qualifier, much has been made of Mexico's injury concerns. US Head Coach Bob Bradley had made it clear that he and his team will have no lack of respect for the Mexican team's visit.
"Mexico has a deep pool of talent, but the players [who could potentially miss the game] are good players." Bradley said in Los Angeles last night.
"Nonetheless, we play a game that, as the first game of qualifying, you expect Mexico to come in organized and ready to give everything they have to make it a hard game. The respect that we have for Mexico is always going to be the starting point when we prepare to play them."
USA play Mexico on Feb 11th at Columbus Crew Stadium; Columbus, Ohio.
