As the friendly match between the United States and Mexico's draws closer, our neighbors to the south of us are alleging the field at the Alamodome is unfit for play.

The Washington Post, citing Medio Tempo, reported that Mexico was unable to practice on the field Tuesday because of poor conditions, namely temporary grass laid over the Alamodome's concrete floor.
