Mexico and Ecuador are set to square off at Bank of America Stadium in a friendly fixture on Wednesday.

This will be the only game for the two national sides before their FIFA World Cup 2022 qualifying fixtures next month.

Mexico are currently in pole position in the CONCACAF final round qualifiers while Ecuador have also done well for themselves and are only behind Brazil and Argentina in the CONMEBOL qualifying standings.

Senior players have not been called up by either side for this one-off game but we still expect this exhibition match to be a well-contested affair.

👋🏻 Good night Charlotte! ☺️🇲🇽⚽️#PasiónyOrgullo | #FMFporNuestroFútbol
