Mexico will play a pair of friendlies in the cities of San Diego and Santa Clara on March 22 and March 26, the Mexican Federation announced on Tuesday.

The FMF has yet to pick an opponent for either match, but it is rumored the games will be against Peru and Chile.

Mexico are currently still without a national team manager. However, it is expected former Atlanta United boss Gerardo “Tata” Martino will be officially confirmed in early 2019.

Mexico will be preparing for next year’s Gold Cup, which will be played in the United States, Costa Rica, and the Caribbean. El Tri have already been drawn into Group A and will play matches in Pasadena, Denver and Charlotte.

Mexico last played in San Diego in 2016 when El Tri defeated Chile 1-0 with a Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez goal. Mexico’s last game in Santa Clara was earlier this year, in a 3-0 victory over Iceland in a tune-up ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
