Mexico head coach Hugo Sanchez has unveiled his roster for El Tri's upcoming clash against the United States, as the two neighbors get set to renew their intense rivalry at Reliant Stadium in Houston this coming Wednesday.Over 50,000 tickets have been sold for the game, the first meeting between the countries since the dramatic Gold Cup finale in Chicago last June. The U.S. holds an 8-0-1 advantage over Mexico in all home games since 1999, and triumphed in both of last year's meetings, outscoring Sanchez's squad by a combined total of 4-1.
