Mexico Vs. Brazil: Starting Lineups and Television Info

New, 2 comments

Mexico's final outing before World Cup qualifying begins next weekend will be a tough one. A young Brazil side coming off a 4-1 victory over the United States will look to earn their country a second win over Mexico in less than a year. Last October, Brazil earned a late 2-1 victory over El Tri in Torreon, Mexico. This time around the match-up takes place in front of a sold out Cowboys Stadium in Texas. No matter what happens on the field, the game certainly won't be lacking for atmosphere.

Three days ago, Mexico had trouble handling the pressure of Bosnia, especially during the first 45 minutes of the match. Brazil will provide an even stiffer test, so it will be crucial that Mexico's midfield and defense are up to the task in the early going. On the offensive end, Andres Guardado and Chicharito return to the starting lineup, adding a bit more scoring punch to the squad.

Starting lineups for both Mexico and Brazil are below, along with kickoff time and television broadcast information. Enjoy the match!

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

Brazil lineup: Rafael, Danilo, Thiago Silva, Juan, Marcelo, Sandro, Romulo, Oscar, Hulk, Leandro Damiao, Neymar.

Kickoff will be at 3pm Eastern, and the venue is Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The match can be seen live in the United States on Univision.
