Today, the Mexican Football Federation (FMF) announced that Mexico will begin its 2018 World Cup preparation by facing Iceland.

Both teams are expected to call up their MVP players for the match scheduled for Friday, March 23, at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the first match that falls within a FIFA window this year.

Mexico has faced Iceland three times, winning one match and drawing two. The first time they met was in 2003 in Phoenix, Arizona in a game that ended in a 0-0 draw, followed by a second match in 2010 in Charlotte, North Carolina, resulting in a 0-0 draw, and lastly in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Mexico winning 1-0 last year.

However, it should be noted that Mexico will kick off 2018 with a friendly match against Bosnia & Herzegovina scheduled for Wednesday, January 31, in San Antonio, Texas.

Mexico has faced Bosnia & Herzegovina three times as well, winning two and losing one. The first time they met was in 2011 in a game that ended in a 2-0 draw, followed by a second match in 2012 in a 2-1 draw, and in 2014 with Bosnia & Herzegovina winning 1-0
