Soccer: CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Finals Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

Mexico Under-23 coach Raul “Potro” Gutierrez begins this final warm-up game with what is assumed will be the the starting lineup at the Rio Olympics. Alfredo Talavera is deemed fit after an injury kept him out of Toluca’s last league game. The center-back partnership is arguably the best available, with Monterrey youngster Cesar Montes and Carlos Salcedo getting the nod. Finally, on the attack, the trio of Carlos Cisneros, Hirving Lozano, and Oribe Peralta is worth taking a special look at.

Meanwhile, Argentina will also start one of their stronger lineups available. Geronimo Rulli will be the starting goalkeeper amidst rumors to a move to Manchester City. What makes this Argentina team so dangerous, however, is the talent of Angel Correa and Jonathan Calleri leading the line.
