Mexican National Team to face Germany in Philadelphia for MexTour’s 20th anniversary

Anticipating exciting face-offs, Mexico's Tricolor prepares for MexTour's 20th anniversary. New coach expected in the coming weeks.

After the Gold Cup title, the waters have calmed down a little in the Mexican National Team, which announced on Tuesday a series of friendly matches to be played in the United States, among which it will face Germany. The ‘Tricolor’ will face Germany on October 17 in the city of Philadelphia as part of the 20th anniversary of the MexTour.

Mexico will play a series of friendly games between September and October to celebrate 20 years of the MexTour in North American territory. In addition to Germany, El Tri will also play against Australia, Uzbekistan, and Ghana, all on FIFA dates, so the teams will be able to count on their stars.

The first game of this series will take place at the AT&T Stadium on September 9 when they face Australia. Then, on Tuesday 12, for the first time in history, the Mexican National Team will face Uzbekistan in Atlanta, the host city for the 2026 World Cup.

One month later, in October, the tricolor team will return to the United States to play against Ghana on October 14, a game that has not yet been decided, while on October 17 will be the main match when they face Germany at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.

Mexico expects to define its coach soon

For starters, it is still unknown who will be the coach in charge of those matches since Jaime Lozano’s interim coach’s tenure ended after the Gold Cup title. Upon his arrival in Mexico City, Ivar Sisniega, President of the FMF, revealed that in a couple of weeks, a maximum of three, they expect to announce the coach of the Mexican National Team who will lead the process towards 2026. Naturally, ‘Jimmy’ is the main candidate. However, more options will be evaluated.
