Surprising starter Freddy Adu looks to continue his strong play in the second half v Panama.

There are going to be a ton of places you could go to enjoy your online experience of this match-up between the United States and Mexico, but this is our community and our place to enjoy watching the two best teams in the region face for a trophy and ticket to Brazil. The game is on Univision (KUNS in Seattle), Fox Soccer and KJR-AM radio (950 AM) is carrying the Fox Soccer audio.

Bob Bradley has clearly read my post on why Adu should start, as he will be. The Americans look to be playing in a 4-2-3-1 with the attacking four being Alejandro Bedoya, Freddy Adu and Landon Donovan in support of Clint Dempsey. The full lineup consists of the usual suspects, outside of that huge insertion of Adu.

Mexico is the more talented side with Chicarito (Javier Hernandez) starting as the lone forward in their own 4-2-3-1. New York Red Bulls' Rafael Marquez will be at centerback as is now the norm. It is a stacked, and unsurprising force.

The USA will be the underdog in this long and heated rivalry. But in a one off Final all that matters is this single game and the goals that are scored. About 70,000 of the 90,000 at the Rose Bowl will be rooting for El Tri, as is typical, but this could be the day when an American side can proudly say "Nos Audietis"
