    “Sutcliffe stated that their are three other games in the works. The first game is slated for sometime in May, most likely around the day of the Champions League final at the Estadio Azteca against either Poland, Switzerland or Belgium.

    The other two games will reportedly take place on June 3 in Chicago against Bosnia and Herzegovina and then on June 6 against Portugal at Metlife Stadium. This would be the last friendly before ‘El Tri’ departs for Brazil.”

    Not sure about Portugal or the home game but Bosnia and Herzegovina do have Mexico on there list of preparation games.
