It is pretty safe to say that Piojo will start the Euro’s called in this match. This will be the only FIFA-date before the final roster call for the World Cup, so making a statement is huge for some of these guys. I expect Chicharito to get the nod, but paired up with Giovani. Although Aquino could play the RWB role, I see Aguilar taking the spot, and Aquino going to the midfield. Ochoa will secure the goal, because this is his stage to make a push for the WC starting keeper position.
Mexico takes on Nigeria on March 5th in Atlanta Georgia.
On a side note, Mexico will debut their red World Cup kit in this match.
