"I wish" pode ser substituido por "I would like to"

Hello people.
I have a doubt aboute an article that was published on 06/07/2007 in the blog "English Experts.com.br".
In the article there is a phrase: "I wish Mary was coming to dinner tomorrow."
Could it be "I would like to Mary was coming to dinner tomorrow"?
Thank you!!!

Hello Aslesi,

I´d say:

"I wish Mary would come to dinner tomorrow."

"I would like Mary to come to dinner tomorrow."

See you!
