The long wait for the México Women’s National Team could be over, as reports are emerging of a February friendly in Ciudad de México. First reported by Fútbol Femenino 507, a site primarily focused on women’s soccer in Panama, México will host Costa Rica for two friendlies in CDMX on February 17 and 24.

Rica y México disputarán amistoso en Ciudad México.
Las Ticas fueron llamadas a concentración del 17 al 24 de febrero donde disputarán 2 partidos amistosos con México.
Por su parte Mónica Vergara recién fue nombrada timonel del Tri Femenil.
This was confirmed by the website for RC Deportivo A Coruña, where Costa Rican squad members Noelia Bermúdez and Stephanie Blanco play professionally, when the club announced the players had received their most recent call ups for the national team.
At the time of publication, neither the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) nor the Costa Rican Football Federation (FCF) had published any confirmation of the matches. This would be the first time México had a game against live competition since a 0-0 draw with the Czech Republic in the 2020 Cyprus Cup, back on March 11, 2020. México finished in third place in the round-robin tournament, also getting a 1-1 draw against Croatia and a 2-2 draw against Slovakia.
