SAN ANTONIO – Mexico’s men's national soccer team will play a quality European opponent at the Alamodome as it prepares for next summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Bosnia and Herzegovina was selected as Mexico’s opponent for the match at the Alamodome on Jan. 31.

It will be Mexico’s first 2018 international match on the road to the 2018 World Cup.

The countries have previously met three times on the soccer field and match will mark the fifth time Mexico has played at the Alamodome.


Their last visit to San Antonio was during the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July, where they beat Curacao 2-0 in front of more than 44,000 fans.

Mexico qualified for the FIFA World Cup after finishing first in CONCACAF.

Bosnia and Herzegovina finished third in its European group and did not qualify for the tournament after advancing in 2014. Tickets for the match are already on sale.
