Mexico is going to take on Argentina in San Antonio. The men's National Team announced the September 10th match inside the Alamodome today.

The match will be the fifth and final match of the 2019 Mexican National Team U.S. Tour, which has averaged nearly 52,000 fans per game and has seen the Mexican team post a 4-0 record, all against South American opponents.

The match will also mark the first time Mexico Head Coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino faces his former team Argentina, which he managed from 2014 to 2016.

Argentina, currently the 11th ranked team in the world, according to FIFA, has played Mexico on 30 occasions, with Mexico winning four times, Argentina 14, with 12 draws.

The two teams last met in back-to-back games played on November 16 and 20, 2018, in Argentina, with the home side winning both matches 2-0.  

Over the years, San Antonio has evolved into a regular stop for the Mexican National Team U.S. Tour, where it has enjoyed large, enthusiastic crowds. The team last played at the Alamodome on January 31, 2018, with Mexico defeating Bosnia and Herzegovina 1-0 behind a 65th minute goal by Hugo Ayala.

Mexico is undefeated in three all-time tour marches in the Alamo City (2004, 2014, 2018).
