USA, Mexico set for April 2 friendly in Arizona

The CONCACAF rivals will square off outside Phoenix as both countries continue their World Cup preparations.
The United States national team will play rival Mexico in an April 2 friendly in Glendale, Ariz.

The match is set to start at 11 p.m. ET, and tickets will go on sale Feb. 18.

The match could be in conflict with the first legs of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinals, but the federations apparently have agreed to work around those matches.

The last time the USA played in the Phoenix area was a January 2012 win against Venezuela at University of Phoenix Stadium. Mexico played a January 2013 friendly at the same venue against Denmark, with the game ending in a 1-1 tie.
