MEXICO CITY (AFP) - Mexico will play the Netherlands in Amsterdam on Nov 12 in a rematch of their World Cup second-round thriller as part of the central American side's autumn tour, the Mexican football federation announced on Wednesday.
The spectators will be hoping for as thrilling a game as the one at the World Cup in Brazil where Mexico looked destined for the quarter-finals leading 1-0 going into the final 10 minutes.
However, two late goals by Wesley Sneijder and a controversial penalty, won by Arjen Robben, converted by Klaas-Jan Huntelaar dashed the Mexicans' hopes of a first appearance in the last eight since 1986.
The Dutch went on to reach the semi-finals where they were beaten on penalties by Argentina.
The Mexicans will finish their mini-European tour with a friendly against Belarus on November 18 at Borisov.
