When does Mexico play? El Tris schedule and results

Goal takes a look at when the next national team matches take place and what time you should tune in…

It’s time for Mexico to turn its attention to the Concacaf Nations League.

Mexico manager Tata Martino plans to use the new tournament to get a look at players who he hasn’t seen much of since arriving in January. 

Many of those players will be young and based in Liga MX, but the Argentine also has brought in big names like Napoli winger Hirving Lozano and Atletico Madrid midfielder Hector Herrera.

While the competition may not be the stiffest in a group that includes Bermuda and Panama, Mexico will look to finish the year strong and earn a place in June’s final.

Here are Mexico’s upcoming fixtures plus a look back at the team’s performances in 2018 and 2019:
