The North Americans will face the Super Eagles in a friendly Los Angeles Coliseum, United States of America, on the 3rd of July. It will be the fifth meeting between Nigeria and Mexico since 1995. Mexico has defeated the Super Eagles once at the Confederations Cup in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, in 1995, while the three other games ended in a draw.
According to Mexico head coach, Gerardo Martino said: “It is a different rival, it brings a different competitiveness to what we have been playing and that we already need, beyond what which represents playing with Panama or Honduras, which is a bit of deepening about our zone rivals, because the qualifiers are coming and it is good that we do so.”
