Mexico vs. Panama, 2018 World Cup Qualifying: Confirmed lineups

Soccer: 2018 FIFA World Cup Qulafying-Mexico at USA Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

A change of goalkeepers for Juan Carlos Osorio as Guillermo Ochoa gets the start in net for the Mexico national team. Nestor Araujo also gets the start in the defense, with Diego Reyes, Hector Moreno, and Miguel Layun all repeating from Friday’s victory.

As ever, there are question marks about Mexico’s starting formation, which means Rafael Marquez is either playing the sweeper role are as a defensive midfielder.

With Andres Guardado injured and Hector Herrera out of form, Jonathan dos Santos and Marco Fabian get the nod in the middle of the park.

Finally, the most interesting aspect of this Mexico team might be their attack as it is composed of Raul Jimenez, Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, and Giovani dos Santos.

You will be able to watch the game at 9:05pm EST on Telemundo.

Mexico Lineup: Ochoa; Reyes, Araujo, Moreno, Layún; Fabian, Márquez, J Dos Santos; Jimenez, Chicharito, G. Dos Santos

Panama: Penedo; Machado, Torres, Escobar, Ovalle; Barcenas, Gomez, Henriquez, Quintero; Torres, Perez
