The USA and Mexico clash on Saturday night, with the winner headed to the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, so it's no surprise that the new Planet Fútbol Podcast is focused almost entirely on the rivalry bout.

SI's Grant Wahl and Brian Straus interview U.S. forward Jozy Altidore at U.S. camp, and the Podcast crew dissects the matchup from all angles, including Klinsmann's future (which has been called into question by Landon Donovan), who should start for the USA and what reaching the Confederations Cup means for the current batch of U.S. players and the next generation of players who may be in their position in two years' time.

We also delve into the latest to emanate from FIFA, where Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini have been suspended, throwing narratives surrounding the February presidential election into chaos.
