Welcome to your live match thread and lineups for the international friendly match between Mexico and Venezuela. Venezuela might not have quite the pedigree of Mexico's last opponent, Paraguay, but it appears that Chepo de la Torre is still taking this match very seriously with his team selection. Sinha has been moved to the bench, allowing many fans to see exactly who they wanted to see in the first place: Youngsters Giovani Dos Santos and Carlos Vela (Edit: Guardado in for Vela). Gio should play as an attacking midfielder behind Javier Hernandez, while Vela Guardado looks to start the match out on the left hand side. 

The key man for Venezuela is likely to be Tomas Rincon, their talented central midfielder. Nicolas Fedor could also be a danger up top, and he will partner with MLS journeyman Alejandro Moreno. Here are your lineups.

Mexico lineup (4-2-3-1): Ochoa; Juarez, Marquez, Moreno, Salcido; Torrado, Perez; Guardado, Dos Santos, Barrera; Chicharito

Venezuela lineup (4-4-2): Morales; Chichero, Perozo, Vizcarrondo, Rosales; Chourio, Rincon, Giorgi, Seijas; Moreno, Fedor
