Mexico’s national team could be canceled due to Coronavirus

The games programmed for the Mexican national team against Czech Republic and Greece may be canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic that is spreading rapidly across the world.

According to information revealed to AS, the company that is in charge of organizing the games is looking at canceling the two friendly matches.

Mexico was set to play Czech Republic on March 26 in Charlotte and Greece on March 29 in Dallas. Now the organizers are waiting for FIFA to release an official statement regarding the situation.

If the games are canceled, Gerardo Martino, Mexico’s head coach, already has a plan B in mind: “If we don’t play this friendlies I hope that the teams still let me borrow the players I want so we can train."
