We are just days away before the last stretch of CONCACAF WCQ. Mexico is currently in third and will need to control their own destiny. Honduras is coming in to this game needing a big win, but Mexico’s revamped look could pose problems for ‘Los Catratchos.’
Here is the full El Tri roster:
Goalkeepers: Corona, Talavera, Orozco
Defenders: Moreno, Rodriguez, Reyes, Meza, Mier, Torres Nilo, Salcido
Midfielders: Torrado, Herrera, Zavala, Guardado, Chaco Giménez, Aquino, Damian Álvarez, Arce
Forwards: Dos Santos, Peralta, Hernández, Jiménez, Reyna
The call ups are very similar to those that played against Ivory Coast, which means that Chepo probably won’t want to make too many changes. That being said, here is an ideal lineup for the match.
- Mier, Reyes, Moreno, Torres Nilo
- Giménez, Salcido, Herrera
- Dos Santos, Peralta, Reyna
Seeing that Chicharito hasn’t been playing much with United (although he has been looking good in training) I feel Peralta will get the nod. I can’t see Maza taking over the CB spot from Reyes. Ivory Coast has a more dangerous attack than Honduras and Reyes stood tall with Moreno.
I believe Aquino could make a great second half sub, pushing the formation to a 4-2-3-1, and putting Giovani at the CAM spot. Chicharito will also most likely make a super sub appearance…and we know what he can do when entering the pitch.
Mexico takes on Honduras in Estadio Azteca on September 6th.
