Beckerman, Rimando called up for U.S. against Mexico

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Rimando and Kyle Beckerman both made Jurgen Klinsmann's latest U.S. National Team roster for a match on Saturday against Mexico, which hardly comes a surprise given their veteran status with the program.

The match will determine which nation goes forward into the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

Beckerman will likely figure in the match, but Rimando is still the third-choice goalkeeper behind Brad Guzan and Tim Howard and is unlikely to play. That's a shame given his excellent form.

Neither should miss time for Real Salt Lake, with no match next weekend.
