Wednesday on TV: 4 RSL players will play for Team USA against Team Mexico

Team USA takes on Team Mexico in a "friendly" soccer match (9:15 p.m., ESPN). It's a warm-up for the upcoming World Cup; and when USA and Mexico get together it's NEVER friendly.

There is a local angle here. Four local angles, as a matter of fact - Real Salt Lake regulars Nick Rimando, Kyle Beckerman, Tony Beltran and Luis Gil are all on the American squad. Rimando and Beckerman are expected to start; Gil is expected to come on as a sub; don't know if Beltran will play.
