Two North American rivals battled to a 1-1 draw in a friendly match in front of 30,138 fans at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

The match marked the beginning of the Jurgen Klinsmann era. The former Germany striker made his debut as the U.S. head coach, and a great deal of hope falls on Klinsmann's shoulders.

Mexico got the scoring going in the first half, when a corner kick led to a cross to Oribe Peralta who somehow managed to get by Michael Bradley's tight marking, and volley the ball past Tim Howard.

The second half belonged the U.S. and the subs came through for Klinsmann. Robbie Rogers scored on basically his first touch of the game, when he put the ball in off a Brek Shea cross. The Yanks had more chances to score, but simply couldn't find the back of the net.

There were notable names not present at the match. Mexico was without Javier "El Chicharito" Hernandez of Manchester United, and the U.S. was without Fulham star Clint Dempsey and Glasgow Rangers' Maurice Edu.

Jurgen Klinsmann earned himself a respectable result. Mexico has been surging in recent months, and the U.S. needed to avoid a loss in their high-profile coach's first game.
