Mexico's road to World Cup 2014 begins tonight against Guyana in Mexico City. The quality of El Tri's opposition is certainly a big step down from last weekend's high-profile showdown against Brazil. Expect little problems for Mexico, who should be able to cruise to an easy victory ahead of Tuesday's match away to El Salvador.
An anticipated easy victory, though, doesn't mean Chepo will be playing a secondary squad. Instead Mexico will throw all kinds of offensive weapons at Guyana, including both Aldo de Nigris and Chicharito together up top, backed up by the usual attacking trio of Andres Guardado, Giovani Dos Santos, and Pablo Barrera. Starting lineups for both Mexico and Guyana can be found below, along with kickoff time and television broadcast information.
Mexico lineup: Jesus Corona, Carlos Salcido, Maza Rodriguez, Hector Moreno, Severo Meza, Jesus Zavala, Andres Guardado, Pablo Barrera, Giovani Dos Santos, Aldo de Nigris, Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.
Guyana lineup: Ronson William, Jake Newton, J.P. Rodrigues, Leon Cort, Walter Moore, Ricky Shakes, Chris Nurse, Carl Cort, Kayode McKinnon, Kester Jacobs, Howard Newton.
Kickoff will be at 8pm Eastern, and the venue is Estadio Azteca in Mexico City. The match can be seen live in the United States on Univision.
