    Match to be shown LIVE on S4C

    Manager Chris Coleman said: "This will be a great opportunity for the team to test themselves against one of the best teams from the Americas. Mexico has plenty of top-class players and the way that the side adapts to the different style of play of our opponents will be interesting to watch. I am very happy for us to secure the game as we continue our World Cup preparations.”

    This will be the third time that the two sides have met. The first was in the World Cup Finals group stage in Sweden in 1958 when the sides drew 1-1 (Ivor Allchurch scoring for Wales). Then, four years later in 1962, Wales concluded a tour that had seen them play twice in Brazil with a final match in Mexico City. That time Mexico had the upper-hand with a 2-1 win that saw Wales’s Cliff Jones sent-off. The Wales goal came from legend John Charles.

    The Wales squad will have had another reason to remember the stay in Mexico City as the area suffered an earth tremor whilst the team was staying there.

    For the Wales and Mexico, the game will be part of their respective build-up’s to the qualifying matches for the FIFA World Cup 2014 qualifiers. Mexico will be playing four games in the USA as part of their preparations. They also face Venezuela, Columbia and Bosnia-Herzegovina in Houston, Miami and Chicago respectively. Their coach is Jose Manuel de la Torre. The Mexicans can select players who are playing all over the world, as well as many who play domestically. Some of the ‘exiles’ include: Efrain Juarez (Celtic), Javier Hernandez (Manchester United), Giovani dos Santos (Tottenham Hotspur), Carlos Vela (Real Sociedad) and Andres Guardado (Deportivo La Coruna).

    Wales has played once before in the USA, playing the national side in San Jose, California in May 2003, losing 2-0. Mark Hughes was the manager at the time.

    It will be the fourth time that Wales has played a match in a ‘third country’: 2006 v Trinidad & Tobago in Austria and Brazil in England, plus 2009 v Poland in Portugal.

    The stadium has recently been renamed as the MetLife Stadium and is home to the NFL’s New York Giants and New York Jets. It has a capacity of more than 82,000 and will host the Super Bowl Final in 2014. Several international football matches have been hosted there, including USA v Brazil in 2010 and USA v Argentina in 2011.
