Mexico and Portugal are hoping to make a mark at the World Cup this summer. But first, they are going to test their mettle against each other on American soil.
Both countries announced friendlies in the United States in June, including a meeting of the two nations June 6 at Gilette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. With Portugal set to face the US national team in group play in Brazil, the tune-up will give both teams a chance to face off against World Cup-caliber competition.
El director técnico de Nigeria, Stephen Keshi, ha anunciado la lista de 23 jugadores convocados para el próximo partido internacional contra la Selección Mexicana el miércoles, 5 de marzo (8:30 p.m., hora del Este) en el Georgia Dome en Atlanta, Georgia.

Although it won’t likely be a friendly meeting.
U.S. Soccer announced Thursday that the USMNT will welcome El Tri to the States for one of their final primers for Brazil on April 2 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.
