Mexico travel to Puerto Rico in what will be a first meeting between the two nations in their Americas Zone Group II first round tie.
Having gained promotion in 2010, Puerto Rico have yet to win a match in Group II since their return and been forced to battle against relegation each year. In their most recent relegation play-off tie they saw off Bolivia in Humacao thanks to Alex Llaompart, who played a part in all of their points in a 3-1 victory.
Mexico missed out on an immediate return to Americas Zone Group I in 2012 as they lost in the Final against Dominican Republic. To reach that stage the Mexican’s had beaten El Salvador and won every set of their semifinal against Barbados. Dominican Republic proved a hurdle too high for them, however, as Victor Estrella led his side to promotion at their expense.
