USA will be looking to take over the top spot in the table with a win over Mexico. A win would set them tied on points, but if USA can score a couple more goals than their counterparts, they’d be able to take first place due to the goal differential tiebreaker. Christian Pulisic will make his first appearance since September for Gregg Berhalter’s squad after suffering an ankle injury in that first set of qualifiers. He’s been out for over two months in both club and international play with that injury, but just recently made his return for Chelsea in Champions League play and will be utilized in these two international games in November as well.
Mexico hasn’t faced off against the Americans since the USMNT beat them 1-0 in the CONCACAF Gold Cup Final on August 1. The match headed into 30 minutes of extra time after regulation ended 0-0, and Miles Robinson scored in the 117th minute to lift the Americans to Gold Cup glory. El Tri has been dominant in qualifying play so far, staying unbeaten while winning four and drawing two through their first six matches.
