While Mexico already is qualified, Costa Rica needs a result to lock up its position in Russia.
Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona drop to the bench in a decision coach Juan Carlos Osorio surely took in part because his team's place in next summer's tournament already is secure.
While Jurgen Damm, who started Mexico's 1-0 victory Friday over Panama, is on the bench he is unlikely to see action in Tuesday's game after taking a knock in training.
