As local Macedonian media SportSport reports, the Mexican football federation has sent an invitation to FFM for a friendly match in January in the USA. The planed location is the city of Los Angeles.
Since it is a non FIFA window, both teams will not be able to field their best players. However, with many Mexican players playing in Mexico and USA, Mexico could field a much stronger squad than Macedonia, who will have to rely on players from the domestic league, a squad like the one that played a friendly against Saudi Arabia in October 2022.
It is unknown if FFM will accept the offer, as traveling to LA for one friendly will cost much. Not to mention the big distance of 10,612.59 km from Skopje to LA. On the other hand, it will be a good opportunity such a match to be played and the 1.MFL players to get a chance to show what they can do. Some European leagues have a winter break in January, so few internationals may be available.
But FFM will first have to confirm Blagoja Milevski as coach as his contract has expired.
Macedonia and Mexico have never faced before.
