No Rodolfo Pizarro or Oribe Peralta? No problem for coach Raul “Potro” Gutierrez, who goes with Arturo “Poncho” Gonzalez and Erick “Cubo” Torres for this one. The Mexican coach also decides on Erick Aguirre at right-back over the struggling Jose Abella, and Hirving “Chucky” Lozano has been benched for Chivas wide player Carlos Cisneros. It would not be surprising to see Lozano come off the bench in a second-half situation.

Meanwhile, South Korea keep the basis of the team that drew Germany 3-3 in their second game of the group stage. Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Ryu Seung-woo, however, makes the start after being benched in the second game following a hat-trick over Fiji.

You will be able to watch the game at 3pm EST on Telemundo and NBC Universo.

Mexico Lineup: Talavera; Aguirre, Montes, Salcedo, Torres-Nilo; Cisneros, Gutierrez, Perez, Gonzalez; Bueno, Torres

South Korea Lineup: Gu; Sim, Lee, Jang, Jeong; Ryu, Park, Kwon, Lee; Son, Hwang
