The Mexican national soccer team will compete in several international friendly games prior to heading to Brazil in an effort to prepare themselves for the tournament. For the summer of 2014, Mexico scheduled games against the United States, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Nigeria and Ecuador. Mexico's final exhibition game before heading to Brazil for the World Cup will be against Portugal at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. The game, which will be held on Friday, June 6th, will be Mexico’s final chance to complete their lineup and strategy preparations before taking part in the greatest soccer tournament in the world.
Mexico is currently ranked as the 19th best team in the world, according to the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. The team has never been ranked higher than fourth place, the current ranking of the Cristiano Ronaldo-led Portuguese team. The team has had great success in their history in Gold Cup and CONCACAF tournaments, winning nine championships, but has struggled in the World Cup. They have finished in the top 10 in just two World Cup tournaments, both of which were held in their home country.
The 3rd ranked Portuguese team is filled with talented players from the top of their roster to the bottom. They have had better success in World Cup action when compared to Mexico, but have never reached the championship game. In 1966, Portugal finished in third place, while their fourth place finish in 2006 was their best finish since. Portugal will be looking to play up to their expectations in this World Cup, something they have struggled to do in most tournaments held in the past five years.
This final friendly matchup before travelling to Brazil will likely feature many of the top players on the Mexican roster. From Rafael Marquez, Giovani dos Santos and Andres Guardado, to Javier Aquino, Oribe Peralta and Carlos Pena, the Mexican squad has the talent to keep up with the stellar Portuguese team.
It is much of the same for Portugal as they have a talent-filled roster led by Ronaldo. In addition to the Portuguese superstar, the team also has other talented players like Nani, Helder Postiga, Bruno Alves and Joao Moutinho that will get one of their final chances to prepare for the World Cup. Portugal will play an additional game against Ireland before the World Cup, but the Mexican team will provide a stiffer test for the Portuguese.
Gillette Stadium is the home to the New England Patriots of the National Football League and the New England Revolution from Major League Soccer. It first opened in 2002 and would normally hold 20,000 fans for MLS games, but when these two international powerhouses play there on June 6, it will be closer to the 68,000 seat capacity the venue can hold for NFL games. For this highly anticipated game pitting the No. 4 and No. 20 teams in the world, there will be no bad seat in the stadium, especially when the Player of the Year, Ronaldo takes the field.
