    Mexico to face Finland in October friendly

    MEXICO CITY -- The Mexican Football Federation announced Monday that its men’s national team will take on Finland in an international friendly on Wednesday, October 30, at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California.

    It will be the fifth all-time meeting between the sides with Mexico winning on three previous occasions and one match ending in a draw.  Their last encounter was in February 1985, a 2-1 victory for El Tri.

    Finland is currently in third place on six points in Group I of UEFA World Cup qualifying for Brazil 2014, behind Spain (11 points) and France (10 points) with three games left to play.

    Since the beginning of 2000, Mexico has played 10 matches in San Diego, going unbeaten in nine of those encounters.  Its lone loss came at the hands of Argentina, 4-1, in June 2008.

    Mexico’s last game at Qualcomm Stadium was a 1-1 draw against Venezuela on March 29, 2011.  Aldo De Nigris scored in the 58th minute to give the Mexicans a lead.
