Huge game tonight — absolutely huge — as the U.S. men’s national team heads to Mexico for a World Cup qualifier at the vaunted Azteca Stadium.
I’ve collected a bunch of links to preview the game, so here we go.
Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the game. Here’s a history lesson on the only point the U.S. has ever earned at Azteca in qualifying. And here’s news on a late addition to U.S. camp, Michael Orozco-Fiscal.
And now let’s get to some other links:

— First off, former Sounder Adam Johansson has found a new team, and it’s a familiar one: IFK Goteborg, his previous club. Sounds like he was relieved to find a team after being released so late into the season.
— Here is a story quoting Obafemi Martins in context of the Nigeria national team.
— Also, FIFA has denied Costa Rica’s protest regarding Friday’s qualifier in snowy Colorado.
— Landon Donovan is back in LA Galaxy training!
— Around MLS, here are the referee assignments for April 6-7 (remember, the Sounders have a bye), Chivas USA’s Juan Agudelo was named MLS Player of the Week, and the Freddy Adu move to Brazil is now official.
— The U.S. U-20, which may or may not feature Seattle’s DeAndre Yedlin, drew a difficult group in the World Cup this summer in Turkey.
— Lastly, Fredy Montero‘s condo is apparently available for rent. The on-loan forward is up to three goals for Millonarios in the Colombian league after scoring again this weekend.
