In preparation for their quarter-final fixture at the CONCACAF Nations League next month, Mexico are set to meet African giants Ghana in an international friendly that will take place at the Bank of America Stadium in the United States on Sunday.
After a poor showing at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar that saw El Tri eliminated at the group stages, Tata Martino was replaced as Mexico head coach by Jaime Lozano.
Since then, the Mexicans have shown green shoots of recovery, winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup and suffering just one loss in their last 15 matches in 2023. They shared the spoils with both Australia (2-2) and Uzbekistan (3-3) in September warm-up games.
As for Ghana, the Black Stars are preparing for next year’s Africa Cup of Nations. Chris Hughton’s troops are unbeaten since he took over in March, and secured AFCON qualification with a victory against Central African Republic on September 7. They come into this on the back of a comfortable 3-1 friendly thrashing of Liberia in their most recent outing last month.
