Changes in Mexico's starting XI on the practice field as opposed to the one against Wales this weekend stirred questions that boss Jose Manuel de la Torre would alter the team's formation against Bosnia.
"Yes, we have visualized this situation with our goalkeepers, the competition is very strong but not just with them, everyone is fighting for a spot," the Mexico boss told media ater Tuesday's practice.
Guillermo Ochoa sat in New Jersey while Jose de Jesus Corona started and posted a clean sheet. The expectation is that the players will be rotated for the midweek game against Bosnia.
One player who is also under the microscope is Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, who missed the weekend game against Wales due to a special permit allowing extra rest.
During the practice session, the Mexico doctors examined the player after he took a knock.
"We'll wait to see how he evolves," De la Torre said. "He took a hit today, and he's coming off a break as well. He's been through a lot, so we'll have to wait until right before the game."
Finally, Rafael Márquez has also picked up an injury and the New York Red Bulls defender will most likely be shelved until the weekend, when Mexico face Brazil in Dallas.
