Mexico are still unbeaten with four points from their first two games – they followed up their 2-2 draw against Portugal with a 2-1 win over New Zealand while Russia fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of the 2016 UEFA Euro winners after opening the tournament with a 2-0 win over New Zealand.

Team News

Carlos Salcedo picked up an injury during Mexico’s match against New Zealand and is likely to be replaced by Nestor Araujo. Russia do not have any injury or suspension concerns.

Mexico Possible Starting Lineup: Guillermo Ochoa, Nestor Araujo, Diego Reyes, Hector Moreno, Miguel Layun, Jonathan dos Santos, Hector Herrera, Andres Guardado, Carlos Vela, Raul Jimenez, Chicarito.

Russia Possible Starting Lineup: Igor Akinfeev, Giorgi Jikia, Viktor Vasin, Fyodor Kudryashov, Aleksandr Samedov, Aleksandr Golovin, Denis Glushakov, Yuri Gazinskiy, Yuri Zhirkov, Fedor Smolov, Dmitriy Poloz.

“I honestly think that this is a perfect scenario for Mexican football. We play away from home against the host team with a lot of support from their fans and fighting for qualification.

We’ll need to control the game and to prove to ourselves that we can compete under such difficult circumstances. If we can do it, we’ll be taking a step forward. We want to show that we can do it against any opponent, regardless of its style.”

– Juan Carlos Osorio, Mexico.
