El Salvador Vs. Mexico, World Cup Qualifier: Starting Lineups

Four days ago Mexico earned the expected win against Guyana, but the effort left something to be desired. It wasn't the dominating performance that many fans were hoping to see from an El Tri side playing at home against a greatly inferior opponent. While the three points earned are all that matters in the end, Mexico now travel south to San Salvador for an infinitely tougher test.

El Salvador come into tonight's match off a tough 2-2 road draw against Costa Rica, and now look to earn another positive result at home against Mexico. El Tri certainly must raise their level of play if they want to earn another three points. A win is important, as it would put Mexico in firm control of Group B after two matches.

Mexico returns to a more traditional lineup against El Salvador, with Jorge Torres Nilo in at left back and Aldo de Nigris back on the bench. Full lineups for both Mexico and El Salvador can be found below, along with kickoff time and television broadcast information.

Mexico lineup: Jesus Corona, Jorge Torres Nilo, Maza Rodriguez, Hector Moreno, Severo Meza, Carlos Salcido, Jesus Zavala, Andres Guardado, Pablo Barrera, Giovani Dos Santos, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

El Salvador lineup: Benji Villalobos, Xavier Garcia, Victor Turcios, Steve Purdy, Alfredo Pacheco, Isidro Gutierrez, Ramon Sanchez, Dennis Alas, Jaime Alas, Osael Romero, Rafael Burgos.

Kickoff will be at 9:30 pm Eastern, and the venue is Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador. The match can be seen live in the United States on Telemundo.
