US soccer to host Mexico in pre-World Cup exhibition April 2 at Glendale, Ariz

  • Print

CHICAGO - The U.S. soccer team will host Mexico in an exhibition game April 2 at Glendale, Ariz., as both nations prepare for the World Cup.

The game, announced Thursday, is not on a FIFA fixture date. That means Europe-based players are not likely to be available for the match.

Preparing for their seventh straight World Cup appearance, the Americans opened their 2014 schedule with a 2-0 win over South Korea on Feb. 1. The U.S. is planning home exhibition games for May 27, June 1 and June 7 before leaving for the tournament in Brazil.

At the World Cup, the U.S. has first-round games against Ghana on June 16, Portugal six days later and Germany on June 26. Mexico opens against Cameroon, before playing Brazil and Croatia.
