The game will be key for both teams as it will take place during the FIFA window before the start of the historic Copa America Centenario, being played across the United States during the month of June. Mexico and Chile are expected to field the same full squads of stars that will take the pitch during the tournament.
Chile, nine-time participants in the FIFA World Cup - including Brazil 2014, boasts stars such as FC Barcelona goalkeeper and national team captain Claudio Bravo, Arsenal forward Alexis Sánchez and Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal.
Mexico and Chile have played 28 times all-time, with a record of 14W-4D-10L in favor of "E; Tricolor." The last time the two teams faced each other was on June 15, 2015 at Estadio Nacional in Santiago, Chile, with Mexico holding the Copa America hosts to a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Now in its 14th year, the annual Mexican National Team U.S. Tour games have become one of the most popular events in the sport, with an average of more than 50,000 fans per match. The team opened the 2016 tour on February 10 with a 2-0 win at Miam's Marlins Park against Senegal. With nearly 70 games played since 2002 as part of the Tour, the Mexican National Team has been able to use the matches not only as a way to prepare for important competitions like the FIFA World Cup and CONCACAF Gold Cup, but also to reach their fervent fan base across North America.
The Mexican National Team U.S. Tour, sponsored by adidas, Allstate Insurance Company, AT&T, Bud Light, Cheetos, Coca-Cola, el Jimador, Makita, Nissan, POWERADE, The Home Depot, and Wells Fargo, will visit five cities across the United States in 2016, and will be broadcast nationally on the Univision family of networks, FS1, and Fútbol de Primera Radio Network.
