Regarding the attack, Martino still maintains a lack of definition around the center forward: the Argentine-Mexican Rogelio Funes Mori, Raúl Jiménez and to a lesser extent Henry Martin have chances to play from the start.

On the other hand, defenders Jorge Sánchez and Héctor Moreno were cautioned in the goalless draw against Poland.


Two days before the decisive game against Argentina, Mexico’s starting team is outlined with: Guillermo “Memo” Ochoa; Jorge Sánchez, César Montes, Héctor Moreno and Jesús Gallardo; Edson Álvarez, Héctor Herrera and Luis Chávez or Carlos “Charly” Rodríguez; Hirving “Chuqui” Lozano, Funes Mori or Jiménez and Alexis Vega.

Mexico will hold its last training session on Friday with the 15 minutes open and then will offer the press conference with the presence of Martino and a player from the squad, as stipulated in the FIFA regulations 24 hours after each game.
