Soccer: Mexican National Team vs New Zealand Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Juan Carlos Osorio opts for Jose de Jesus Corona in net and three center-backs to start the game. Hugo Ayala is the most experienced of the three center-backs, with Jordan Silva and Hedgardo Marin both making their senior national team debuts with El Tri.

In the midfield we find regulars like Jesus Molina and Jesus Dueñas, along with Eintracht Frankfurt’s Marco Fabian who will be traveling back to Germany at the conclusion of this match.

Most eyes will be on Mexico’s attack where Hirving Lozano is joined by captain Giovani dos Santos and 22-year-old Pumas UNAM forward Jesus Gallardo. Leading the attack will be Oribe Peralta.

You will be able to watch the game at 3pm EST on Univision, Univision Deportes Network, and fuboTV.

Mexico Lineup: Corona; Ayala, Silva, Marin; Dueñas, Molina, Fabian; Lozano, Giovani dos Santos, Gallardo; Peralta

New Zealand: Marinovic; Boxall, Tzimopoulos, Reid, Wynne, Graham, Lewis, McGlinchey, Barbarouses, Wood, Rojas.
