The National Mexican Federation confirmed that El Tri will play its first friendly game before the World Cup on January 29th.

    The match against South Korea will be the first of 5 friendly games that the Aztec team will play on US soil after earning their spot for Brazil 2014 in the intercontinental playoff.

    Both teams will face each other at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. This stadium already witnessed Mexico’s 2-0 draw against Guatemala.

    South Korea is not an unknown rival to our team. They have played a total of 10 games, which have resulted in 5 victories for Mexico, 3 for South Korea and 2 ties.

    The last time they played each other was in 2006 in Los Angeles where South Korea won 1-0.

    The Asian team earned its spot for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil after finishing second in Group A of their qualifying zone.

  • WE DID IT. Mexico earned the long-awaited ticket for the World Cup.


    After a series of struggles, The Mexican National Team couldn't earn one of the three direct spots for Brazil 2014 offered by the CONCACAF and went all out in a match against New Zealand.

    The Azteca stadium at Mexico City welcomed the first leg of the intercontinental playoff series and the MNT displayed its superiority over New Zealand with a devastating 5-1 victory.

    It was rather unthinkable that with such a result New Zealand could ruin El Tri’s dream to Brazil, given that the second phase is determined by total goals scored and New Zealand had to defeat Mexico by a minimum of 4 goals.

    The optimistic predictions came true when Mexico beat New Zealand 4-2 in the second leg at Wellington. Many thought the game was a stroll since the Aztec team dominated the 90 minutes without jeopardizing their qualification.

    With this emphatic performance, Mexico closes the chapter of one of its worst qualifying campaigns and opens a new one to its fifteenth World Cup participation; its sixth consecutive participation since USA ‘94; France ‘98, Korea-Japan 2002, Germany 2006 and South Africa 2010.
