FOX Deportes announces the acquisition of English-language rights to the Mexican National Team’s complete schedule of friendly matches through the FIFA World Cup 26.
FOX Deportes’ live coverage of “El Tri” opens with Mexico vs. Ghana this Saturday, Oct. 14, at 8:30 PM ET in Charlotte, and then against four-time World Cup champion Germany in Philadelphia on Tuesday, Oct. 17, at 8:00 PM ET.
On Saturday, Rodolfo Landeros serves as play-by-play announcer alongside former Mexico National Team member Mariano Trujillo. On Tuesday, Adrian Garcia-Marquez calls the match with Trujillo and Landeros as field reporter.
Mexico’s roster for the two matches includes top stars including Santiago Gimenez, Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa, Raul Jimenez and Hirving “Chucky” Lozano.
