As such, they will be full of confidence coming into the match and should have a vocal support behind them in Arlington.
Croatia, on the other hand, arrive in Texas having suffered a 2-0 loss against Peru in their last outing and they are also shorn of a clutch of their star players.

Betting & Match Odds
Mexico are favourites to win according to dabblebet, who price them at 5/6. Mexico are rated 7/2 to wn and a draw is priced at 9/4.
Mexico were much too strong for Iceland when the sides met over the weekend and they will be particularly buoyed by their second-half performance in California.
Juan Carlos Osorio's men are getting ready for a World Cup group that contains two European sides - Germany and Sweden - as well as South Korea, so the latest round of friendlies sees them matched with similar opposition.
However, while Iceland are no pushovers, Croatia represent a totally different proposition for El Tri and, despite being without the likes of Modric, Perisic and Mandzukic, they still boast an array of talented players who are plying their trades in Europe's top leagues.
Their defeat to Peru in Florida was somewhat of a surprise and Zlatko Dalic will be keen for his players to conclude their United States tour on a high note as they push for a place in his final 23-man panel for this summer's tournament in Russia.
"I think Croatia has a lot of quality with all its players," Standard Liege striker Duje Cop told Goal. "Of course when you don’t have players like Modric, you feel their absence. But I think we’ll make tomorrow a very good game and this is an opportunity for everyone to show what they’ve got for the World Cup."
