A week after it was first reported, the Mexican Federation announced on Wednesday that the Mexico National Team will face Costa Rica and Chile in next month’s international friendlies.

First, El Tri is set to play Costa Rica at the Estadio Univeristario, home of Tigres UANL. Then five days later at the Estadio Corregidora in Querétaro, Mexico will play host to Chile.

This will be El Tri’s first international friendly matches outside the United States and the Estadio Azteca following a game against Trinidad and Tobago in San Luis in October of last year.

It will more than likely still be Ricardo “Tuca” Ferretti who is in charge of the team on an interim basis. Although during the last few days, the idea that Ferretti could become permanent manager of Mexico has intensified, with the Brazilian claiming that the door is open on possible negotiations with his club Tigres and the Mexican Federation.
