El Tri started the tie positively, winning against Jamaica. Although soccer was not the most lucid, the result ended up being positive since Mexico was the only national team that added three points. Now, for the second day without Gerardo Martino, the Mexican team will visit the Tico team, in a match where it is expected that there will be changes in the starting eleven.
Guillermo Ochoa will be the starting goalkeeper for practically the entire tie, that is a movement that will hardly change. Against Costa Rica, the goalkeeper with the bronze medal will remain in goal.
The rear will also present minimal changes, Jesús Gallardo will remain as the left back, the pair of centrals will repeat, although, on the right side there could be a modification, Luis Rodríguez could take the place of Jorge Sánchez.
The midfield would also have a modification, Edson Álvarez and Luis Romo could repeat in the starting position, however, Orbelín Pineda could take the place of Sebastián Córdova, a modification that Martino made against Jamaica and generated immediate changes.
The offensive sector will have a sure change, Jesús Manuel Corona was protected by the coaching staff and after a long trip from Portugal to Mexico he will return in the eleven taking the position of Roberto Alvarado. Despite Thursday’s goal, Henry Martín will not take the place of Funes Mori who would repeat as ‘9’ and the trident in attack would be completed by Alexis Vega.
