MOST COMMENTED

[MEXICO] Months of negotiations forged a new contract by which Soccer United Marketing (SUM) promotes and markets the Mexican national team, but lining up opponents for Mexico’s annual series of games in the United States hasn’t been easy in a post-World Cup year.

The first game of 2011 has been announced by SUM and the Mexican soccer federation (FMF), however. Mexico will play Bosnia-Herzegovina Feb. 9 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta.

Mexico drew a crowd of 51,115 to the Georgia Dome two years ago, and they witnessed a 4-0 thumping of Venezuela.

Coach Jose Manuel de la Torre will use the match and subsequent U.S. friendlies to prepare his team for the Concacaf Gold Cup and Copa America to played in the summer. The SUM-FMF partnership will stage five Mexico games in the United States in 2011, the ninth year of the affiliation.

Bosnia-Herzegovina features team captainEmir Spahicof Montpellier, forward Edin Dzekoof Wolfsburg, and midfielder Miralem Pjanic of Lyon. Dzeko is being pursued by Manchester City and a January transfer could affect his availability for this match. Bosnia also features for Saint Louis University star Vehad Ibisevic, who plays for Germany's Hoffenheim
