Martin Oâ€™Neill has expressed his delight at Irelandâ€™s friendly with Mexico on June 1st.
The boys in green will take on the South American side at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, which has a capacity of 82,500.
Ireland take on UruguayÂ in another friendly at the Aviva three days later, and welcome Austria to Dublin on the 11th in a crucial World Cup qualifier.
O’Neill feels that the game will be beneficial to players who will be idle after their club season has ended.
â€œThis is a brilliant match for us in our preparation for our World Cup qualifier against Austria,â€ the Ireland boss said.
â€œMexico in the United States couldnâ€™t be much tougher but itâ€™s exactly what we want. We have another game against Uruguay a few days later at the Aviva Stadium before the Austria game the following week.
â€œThe players who may not have played for a while after their club season has ended will, Iâ€™m sure, relish the opportunity to play against such quality opposition.â€
Ireland’s last game against Mexico ended in a 2-2 draw in 2000, and June’s match will mark the fifth meeting between the countries.
The game will kick off at 8pm US time/1am Irish time.
Tickets for the friendly will be released via Ticketmaster.com from 3pm on Wednesday March 1st.
