Japan women to face Mexico

Japan will face Mexico at home in March in the first leg of a playoff for a place at next year's Women's World Cup in China, soccer's world governing body FIFA said Friday.

The Asian Games silver medalists will host the first leg on March 10 and will travel to Mexico for the return leg to be played a week later.
