Mexico Releases Schedule for Friendly Matches in Preparation for Copa America 2024

The Mexico national team is gearing up for an exciting summer of soccer as they prepare to take on two South American powerhouses in the lead up to the 2024 Copa America. After clinching a spot in the tournament through the CONCACAF Nations League, the 2023 Gold Winners are eager to make their mark on the international stage once again.

First up for El Tri is a showdown with Uruguay on June 5. These two teams last met in June 2022, with Uruguay emerging victorious with a 3-0 win. However, the head-to-head record between the two nations is quite even, with both teams recording three wins in their last six encounters.

Following their clash with Uruguay, Mexico will face off against Brazil on June 8. Brazil, considered one of the favorites for the upcoming Copa America, boasts a formidable record against Mexico, having won four of their last eight meetings. Their last encounter in the 2018 World Cup saw Brazil secure a 2-0 win, with goals from Neymar and Roberto Firmino.

While the venues for these two friendlies have yet to be announced, it is expected that they will take place in the United States, the host country for the Copa America. Mexico has a history of scheduling matches in the US, and it would provide an ideal setting for these high-profile matchups.

Before their friendlies, Mexico will also compete in the Nations League semifinal against Panama, a team they recently defeated in the Gold Cup final with a 1-0 victory. This will serve as valuable preparation for the team as they look ahead to the Copa America campaign.

In Group B of the Copa America, Mexico is scheduled to kick off their campaign on June 22 against Jamaica. They will then face off against Venezuela on June 26 before concluding the group stage with a match against Ecuador on June 30. Head coach Jaime ‘Jimmy’ Lozano will be looking to guide his team to a successful group stage performance and secure qualification to the quarterfinals.

As the anticipation builds for the upcoming Copa America tournament, Mexican fans are eagerly awaiting the chance to see their team take on top-class competition and showcase their talent on the international stage. With a challenging schedule of friendlies and group stage matches on the horizon, Mexico is ready to make a statement in South America next summer.
