It will play games against Mexico June 6 at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., and Ireland June 10 -- Portugal Day -- at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. At least 11 teams -- more than a third of the World Cup field -- will play tune-up games in the lucrative U.S. market.

Portugal is in Group G with the USA, Germany and Ghana and doesn't open play at the World Cup until June 16, which explains its trip to the USA so close to the start of the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12.
