The top two teams in Hex face off, with El Tri looking to win on the road for the second time in less than a week.

  PROBABLE LINEUPS
Panama (4-4-2): Penedo; Rodriguez, Baloy, Cummings, Parrish; Quintero, Godoy, Barahona, Gomez; Perez, Tejada


Team News:

Panama ran out a slightly experimental lineup against Peru but took a 2-1 loss in a friendly on June 1. Not having Felipe Baloy and Blas Perez in the starting side hurt, but both players should be back to face Mexico.

Mexico (4-1-2-1-2): Corona; Salcido, Reyes, Maza, Meza; Torrado; Barrera, Guardado; dos Santos; De Nigris, Hernandez
Mexico Under 17

Team News:

Giovani dos Santos did not make the starting team against Jamaica on Tuesday, but that should change for the match against group leader Panama on Friday. There is a position battle going on with the goalkeepers as well, but Jesus Corona's showing against Jamaica should be strong enough for him to keep his starting place in the team.
  DID YOU KNOW?

  • Mexico's 1-0 win over Jamaica was the team's first victory in 2013, and sent El Tri to the top of the Hex.
  • A win for Panama would move it back above Mexico to the top of the group, with Mexico only one point up and having played one more game.
  • Panama's last outing in qualifying was a 2-0 win over Honduras, with star strikers Perez and Luis Tejada netting the goals.
  • Panama comes into the match with one win and two draws from three matches so far in the Hex.
  • Mexico has one win and three draw in the group, but is the only team in the group that has won on the road.
