It’s the last exhibition match for the Mexican national team before they head back to Mexico to prepare for World Cup qualifying.

El Tri will face Brazil in front of a sold out crowd at the Cowboy’s Stadium.

Mexico’s last two games were against Wales and Bosnia, where they came away as victors. They did well against Wales, and just snatched a victory from Bosnia in the last moments of the game.

Weather won’t be a problem against Brazil as it was against Bosnia because the Cowboy’s Stadium has a roof in case of any unforeseen weather change.

Brazil are also coming off recent boosts, with their latest a win over the US. Although the US gave them some trouble, Brazil managed to put four goals past their opponent for a 4-1 win.

These men were on the field for Brazil:
BRA : Rafael; Danilo, Juan, Thiago Silva (capt), Marcelo (Alex Sandro); Sandro, Romula, Oscar; Hulk (Casimiro), Leandro Damiao (Alexandre Pato), Neymar (Lucas)
Subs not used: Jefferson, Rafael, Bruno Uvini, Wellington Nem, Giuliano, Neto

Mexico always seems to play well against Brazil. In their latest match, Brazil defeated Mexico 2-1 on October 11, 2011.

Although both teams will want to avoid injuries before starting a busy season(Mexico’s World Cup qualifying and Brazil’s Olympic preparation), it should be an interesting game as both teams show off some flair.

Time: When: Sunday, June 3rd, 3 ET
