FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The U.S. women's team, fresh off winning the prestigious Four Nations Cup, will open its domestic schedule heading to the World Cup with a game April 14 against Mexico.
The United States will host its continental rival at Gillette Stadium as part of a doubleheader. The MLS' New England Revolution will play expansion Toronto FC in the second game.
The U.S. women have not played in the Boston area since a 1-0 win over Norway in the 2003 World Cup.
"We always look forward to playing Mexico because we know it will be an open, attacking game," said U.S. coach Greg Ryan. "Hopefully, by the time we get to Boston, Mexico will have qualified for the women's World Cup and the game will have that extra edge."
The U.S. team next travels to Portugal for the Algarve Cup, another important tournament leading to the World Cup in September in China.
