US to Visit Chihuahua in First Appearance in Mexico Since 2008


10/25/22 - The USA567 Men's National Team will play their historic rivals on Mexican soil for the first time since 2008 when they travel to Chihuahua for a pair of games October 28 and 29. And for the first time ever, the USA567 Women's National Team will also make the trip south of the border, setting up a quadruple header, US vs. Mexico, weekend.

The US women's team is the defending WMF World Champion, winning the 2021 WMF World Cup last August, in Kyiv, Ukraine. In July of that year they played three games against Mexico, tying one, and losing two. Mexico's women did not participate in the 2021 WMF World Cup so bragging rights will be on the line in Chihuahua. The US women will have eight players returning from their World Cup roster, many of whom didn't face Mexico last time the two countries met up.

"We brought in a mix of former minifootball world cup players and some new new faces to look at," said USA567 Technical Director Craig Rhodis. "Mexico will be very good competition so it is an opportunity to evaluate where we are as a group, but also provide an opportunity for new players. We, as a staff, are looking forward to starting the process of preparing for the arena world cup and the minifootball world cup."

The US men will once again take on a Mexico team that has mostly gotten the better of them the last few years. Mexico will feature a heavy assortment of local Chihuahua Savage MASL players, some making their national team debuts.

Sam Guernsey, Stuart Grable, and Breno Oliveira are slated to make their international debuts, while Ricardo Carvalho, a fixture with the Brazilian National Team and newly minted US citizen, will also make his first appearance for the USA. Stalwart forward Franck Tayou returns to the lineup after missing the Americans' 8-7 loss in Ontario on September 17.
