The L.A. Blues' preparations for their second season in the USL Pro league will include two games against Mexican opposition.
The Blues will face Mexico's under-20 national team on Feb. 25 and Mexican second-tier club Irapuato on March 10, both of them 7 p.m. starts at Cal State Fullerton's Titan Stadium.
El Tri's U-20s include Cruz Azul's Martin Galvan, who has attracted interest in Europe after making his first-team debut 40 days shy of his 15th birthday, Monterrey forwards Jesus Manuel Corona and Luis Madrigal, and UANL Tigres defender Juan Pablo Ocegueda (Riverside/Saddleback HS).
The U-20s also will face UCLA on Feb. 28 at Birmingham High School in Van Nuys.
Irapuato features goalkeeper Sergio Arias, who was No. 3 on Chivas USA's depth chart last year.
Tickets for each game are $20 ($10 for 12-under) and available from the Blues at 714-738-8011 or on the team's Facebook page.
