Mexico Vs. Serbia, 2011 International Friendly: Lineups And Live Match Thread

One month ago, Mexico held a second half lead against mighty Brazil but couldn't close out the victory. Playing in front of a home crowd in Torreon, El Tri conceded two late goals en route to a disappointing 1-2 defeat. The result gave Jose Manuel de la Torre his first ever loss as national team manager in a game that also happened to be his first time coaching Mexico on home soil. Tonight will be his second. El Tri and De la Torre play their second consecutive match in Mexico, where they take on Serbia at Estadio Corregidora in Queretaro.

In their final match of 2011 -- a year that will go down as one of the most successful in national team history -- Mexico look to rebound from that October 11th loss to Brazil. El Tri again bring out a strong lineup to face off against a talented Serbia side currently ranked just one spot below Mexico in the FIFA rankings (Mexico is currently 22nd, Serbia 23rd). With their talented attack, Mexico also hopes to produce a bit more scoring than in recent showings. In their past four friendlies (against the United States, Poland, Chile, and Brazil) Mexico has scored just one goal in each match. Will this be the long-awaited breakout attacking performance? Tune in to find out. Starting lineups for both teams and television information for Mexico vs. Serbia can be found below.
