After one game, Mexico have to looked to be far away one of the best teams in this tournament so far, brushing away a Suarez-less Uruguay to earn their first three points of the competition. Now, in a rematch of the 2015 Gold Cup final, Mexico can virtually seal their place in the next round of the Copa America Centenario with a win against Jamaica.
From a Mexican perspective, Juan Carlos Osorio is a man who likes to change formations and lineups often. He has done it in such extent that he has failed to repeat a single lineup since taking over El Tri. As such, Mexico fans can expect Osorio to switch things up once more as they take on a Jamaica side that lost their first game against Venezuela.
For starters, Andres Guardado will be unavailable after picking up a red card against Uruguay. The Mexican captain will serve a one game suspension but is also questionable for Mexico's last group stage game with an ankle injury. That said, we can expect to see a completely different midfield than the one from Mexico's first outing, and this could be the first time Carlos Alberto "Gullit" Peña sees action in this Copa America Centenario.
Meanwhile, Jamaica arrive to this game on the back of an opening defeat to Venezuela. The Caribbean side suffered first half suspensions to Rodolph Austin and energetic manager Winfried Schafer, who will both be unavailable for this match. Captain Wes Morgan, however, is expected to start after only coming on as a substitute in the first game.
