|DID YOU KNOW?|
- Mexico opened its qualifying campaign with a 3-1 home win against Guyana on Friday night.
- In Group B's other match, El Salvador traveled to San Jose and earned a very credible 2-2 draw against Costa Rica.
- Mexico was left unsatisfied with its two-goal win at home against one of the region's minnows. Head coach Chepo de la Torre said of the performance: "The fans are right [to boo]. They're right because they came here to watch us win and we owed them tonight."
- El Salvador has qualified for two World Cups in its history: 1970 and 1982.
Mexico lost its last trip to Estadio Cuscatlan, falling 2-1 in 2010 World Cup qualifying. El Tri defeated El Salvador 5-0 in the 2011 Gold Cup.
Several major media outlets may refuse to cover the match as a boycott for the Salvadoran federation charging $25 to $50 for credentials.
