El Tri's Bolivia friendly

Mexico will play Bolivia tonight in a friendly at Dick's Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City, Colo.

I've got you covered over at Goal.com.

With regards to the game, I really don't know how much good it will serve. In the long run, some of the younger players like Paul Aguilar and Hugo Ayala may benefit from it, but I don't think either would or should be in the mix to start against Costa Rica. And this roster features a lot of players in that category, not because they aren't talented. They just don't have the experience.

Right now, what is more important than bleeding the youngsters is righting the wrongs, fixing their problems, and how can you fix a problem when half of the team is missing?

I believe friendies are meaningless in general with regards to results; who cares what the final score is tonight? However, this friendly has even less meaning given what Mexico will face in two-plus weeks and the players who won't get to prepare for that game in tonight's match.
