Pick Your Mexico Starting XI Against El Salvador

Mexico will be missing a pair of key players. Who should Javier Aguirre send out to compensate for those absences? Make your call.
Mexico are on the verge of reaching the World Cup. El Tri have but to win against El Salvador in order to clinch a spot in South Africa 2010.

However, Giovani Dos Santos won't be part of the festivities. Neither will Cuauhtemoc Blanco.

Who, then, should start for Mexico?

Fill out manager Javier Aguirre's lineup sheet and back up your claim. Then, return and have a friendly debate with fellow Tricolor supporters.
