Mexico seeking European opposition ahead of World Cup

Under Martino, Mexico embarked on their first European tour during the last international break in October and November when they played the Netherlands, Algeria, South Korea and Japan. El Tri have played Wales four times in their history with two wins and two draws.

Wales will also be seeking to limber up ahead of their own 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign. Ryan Giggs' side will travel to Belgium on 24 March before hosting the Czech Republic after their exhibition game against El Tri.
