Portugal and Mexico will play at Gillette Stadium in a pre-World Cup friendly on June 6, according to a release.

Both teams are in the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12 in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

Portugal, who are currently ranked fourth in the world, are in a group with the US, Germany, and Ghana. They lost to Brazil 3-1 in an international friendly at Gillette Stadium on Sept. 10, 2013.

Mexico scraped their way into the World Cup, earning the last qualifying place from CONCACAF in an inter-continental playoff victory against New Zealand. The Mexicans kick-off their World Cup odyssey on June 13 against Cameroon. They will also play Brazil and Croatia in the group stage.

Both teams are expected to bring their full squads to Foxborough since the World Cup will be just one week away. That means the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, and other world stars available to play.
