The international break gets underway Wednesday with a series of friendlies headlined by a pair of national team returns.
Leading the way is a World Cup rematch, as Mexico look to avenge their Round of 16 elimination at the hands of the Netherlands. Wednesday’s action will see the El Tri return of forward Carlos Vela, who will be making his first national team appearance in nearly four years after refusing a series of call-ups.
Argentina will also see the return of one of the nation’s brightest stars, Carlos Tevez, who features for the first time since 201. The World Cup runners-up return to Tevez’s former stomping grounds, West Ham’s Upton Park, for a matchup against fellow World Cup participants Croatia.
Meanwhile in other international action, Brazil matches up with Turkey, while Belgium takes the field against Iceland.
