BOGOTA, Nov. 17 (Xinhua) -- Colombia's national football team will end the year with friendlies against Venezuela and Mexico in the United States, the Colombian Football Federation (FCF) said on Friday.

The Cafeteros will confront Venezuela in Fort Lauderdale on December 10 and Mexico in Los Angeles six days later, the FCF said in a statement.

It will be the second encounter between Colombia and Venezuela this year following their 2026 World Cup qualifier in Barranquilla in September, which the hosts won 1-0.

Mexico and Colombia last met in September 2022, when the Cafeteros prevailed 3-2 in a friendly in Santa Clara, near San Francisco.

The matches are not on official FIFA international dates, meaning players based in Europe are unlikely to be available for selection.
