It seems to be a subdued U.S.-Mexico match this time around. There isn't the excitement of Hugo's first match, no title is on the line, and it's not a World Cup qualifier. Even though the Mexican media hypes up the clashes between the teams more than anyone, they usually get a bit of help from the Mexican team, or maybe Landon will say something that everyone goes crazy about.
However, Sanchez, for once, isn't making a big deal out of the game. I think that's partly his strategy. Managing expectations helps his players stay loose, and also leaves him a bit of an out in case the team loses.
