NAME: Mexico – Iceland
DATE: 30 May 2021
TIME: 00:30 UTC
LEAGUE: International Friendly Match 2021
The last time the Mexicans were able to entertain their dedicated diaspora in the United States came as long ago as September 2019, when coach Gerardo Martino suffered his first defeat since taking the reins – a 4-0 loss to his native Argentina. Ahead of their CONCACAF Nations League campaign next month, Mexico are set to face Iceland in Texas, on Sunday. El Tri return to the United States for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic brought Central America to a standstill last year and will meet the experienced European side at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Mexico will look to get themselves warmed up when they take on Iceland on Saturday in a friendly ahead of their CONCACAF Nations League semi-final against Costa Rica. Iceland have faced Mexico four times in the past but are yet to score a goal against them. The Vikings will look to put that record to rest when they square up against Gerardo Martino’s side as the two teams clash at the AT&T stadium in Arlington, Texas. Iceland came agonizingly close to qualifying for the Euros, which starts in June. In their playoff game against Hungary, Iceland conceded two goals in the dying embers of the game to stop just short of making it. They have been on a downward slope ever since.
In fact, out of their last 10 matches, Iceland have won just one, which was their most recent game against Liechtenstein, and lost nine. Meanwhile, Mexico beat Costa Rica 1-0 in an international friendly in their latest outing. In fact, they have lost just two of their last 24 matches and have been in good form of late. The game takes place in North Texas where there is a growing Hispanic population and the Mexican national side has played at the AT&T stadium nine times since it was built in 2009.
