Unlike most nations, Mexico have decided to squeeze in two friendlies before going off to Qatar for the World Cup, setting up base in Spain. The first friendly saw them take on Iraq, winning 4-0 with a squad that wasn’t quite full-strength, made up of players that were able to join early due to their domestic seasons already ending. But Wednesday’s game will be the first real showing of a fuller-strength Mexico ahead of the World Cup.
This winter’s tournament will be the eighth-consecutive appearance for Mexico and their 17th overall, where they will look to go one further than their seven last-16 exits in a row. After taking on Sweden in their final friendly, Mexico open the World Cup against Poland before facing Argentina and Saudi Arabia.
For Sweden, this winter is a missed opportunity for back-to-back World Cups as they fell at the final hurdle in qualifying. After finishing second in their group behind Spain, Sweden beat Czech Republic 1-0 in the play-off semi-final but lost to Poland in the final, thanks to two second-half goals.
So instead Sweden’s players will have winter off, once they finish two friendlies. After taking on Mexico, Sweden face a side also not at the World Cup in Algeria, and they will be looking to end a poor run. After failing to qualify for the World Cup, Sweden took one point from six matches in the Uefa Nations League to be relegated to League C.
