It’s set.

Croatia vs. Mexico.

The Mexican National Team will play Croatia on Tuesday, March 27, at AT&T Stadium as part of its preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Croatia is also headed to the World Cup. Both teams are expected to travel with their top rosters.

Croatia has faced Mexico five times, winning three. They won matches in 1992, 1999 and 2017. Mexico beat Croatia in Japan during the 2002 and 2014 FIFA World Cups. Their most recent match was last year at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, with Croatia winning 2-1.

Mexico will be the top-ranked team from CONCACAF to play in World Cup. To prepare for the event, the Mexican National Team will be making U.S. Tour visits in Texas and California.

This will mark Mexico’s seventh visit to AT&T Stadium, where it has a 5-0-1 record. The squad last played there against Argentina as part of its 2015 U.S. Tour.

The Mexico team will also play at Santa Clara’s Levi Stadium on March 23 against World Cup-bound Iceland. Mexico opened the tour with a 1-0 win over Bosnia & Herzegovina in San Antonio on Jan. 31.

Tickets for the Mexico U.S. Tour matches are available via MexTour.org, ticketmaster or by calling 1-800-745-3000.
