MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico will host Israel on May 26 in Azteca Stadium as part of its preparations for the World Cup.

After that match, announced Friday by the Mexican Football Federation, El Tri has three previously announced games in the United States: against Ecuador on May 31 in Arlington, Texas; Bosnia-Herzegovina on June 3 in Chicago; and Portugal on June 6 in Foxborough, Mass.

In a game without Europe-based players, Mexico plays the U.S. on April 2 at Glendale, Ariz.

Mexico plays in Group A at the World Cup against Cameroon, host Brazil and Croatia.
