NEW YORK — 

Mexico will play a pair of exhibition games in the United States in March.

El Tri will meet Ecuador at the Los Angeles Coliseum in March 28, then play Paraguay three days later at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The games are within the international fixture period on FIFA’s calendar, which means most top players should be available.

The matches were announced Thursday by Soccer United Marketing, an affiliate of Major League Soccer.

Mexico also is scheduled to play the U.S. at San Antonio on April 15, which is not a FIFA date.
