Though domestic football seasons have only been going a few weeks, it's time for another international break. Today's fixture list sees several friendly games taking place including this Netherlands vs Mexico clash from the Johan Cruyff Arena in Amsterdam. Don't miss a moment of the game with our Netherlands vs Mexico live stream guide.

While the UEFA Nations League group stage continues next week, and the CONCACAF Nations League finals have been postponed until June next year, both sides will still want to win in this game.

Up until this month, El Tri hadn't played a game since November of last year due to the current global health crisis. Gerardo Martino's side return to the pitch on October 1 and recorded a victory against bordering nation Guatemala. Henry Martin gave Mexico the lead early on in that game with Orbelin Pineda and Sebastián Córdova also finding the net in the 3-0 win.

Mexico were scheduled to play World Cup qualifying games in September, though those were called off due to the pandemic. Liga MX games are back underway in the country.

The Netherlands have been in competitive action more recently and will likely treat today's game as something of a warm-up for upcoming Nations League ties with Bosnia and Herzegovina and Italy. It's one win and one defeat so far in the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League group stage for the Oranje, with a 1-0 win at home to Poland and a 1-0 away defeat at Italy last time out.
