Juan Carlos Osorio’s men have won 10 games on the spin with Mexico’s latest routing of Uruguay 3-1 in their opening game in Copa America 2016.
Two victories from their opening two games would be enough to guarantee their safe passage into the knockouts, and allow coach Osorio to rotate for the final group game against Venezuela.
Now a win over Jamaica at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, combined with Uruguay failing to beat Venezuela in Group C’s other game on Thursday, would take El Tri through to the knockout phase.
Jamaica certainly aren’t as poor a team as they once were, having recruited several English-born players to bolster their ranks. However, they suffered a disappointing defeat to Venezuela in their first Copa América encounter.
Mexico: Predicted Line-up (4-3-3)
Talavero – Moreno, Marquez, Araujo, Layun – Reyes, Herrera, Duenas – Corona, Aquino, Hernandez.
Jamaica: Starting Line up (4-4-2)
Blake – Watson, Mariappa, Taylor, Lawrence – McCleary, Grant, Hector, McAnuff – Barnes, Donaldson.
