The U.S. won Group C in CONCACAF’s fourth round of qualifying on Tuesday with a 4-0 victory over Trinidad and Tobago. That means the team is in the final round of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, and it also means it opens the hexagonal round against its fiercest rival.
Mexico will visit the United States on Nov. 11 to kick off “Hex” play. The U.S. will then go to Mexico on June 13, 2017 on the sixth matchday.
The rest of the schedule will be finalized after all of the matches are played on Tuesday. Be sure to come back to see the entire schedule.
The opener against Mexico will be the marquee game in CONCACAF play that night, and possibly the entire hexagonal stage. The U.S. will then go to either Costa Rica or Panama in its second game, so a slip-up against Mexico at home could put the Americans in quite the tough spot. Mexico and the U.S. are the two favorites to win the hexagonal and are both expected to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
