Juan Carlos Osorio’s men arrive on a high after battling toe to toe with Belgium. Hirving “Chucky” Lozano was phenomenal, scoring two of Mexico’s three goals and leading the way for a memorable Mexican performance. Lozano has been on an absolute tear in recent weeks and his performances have transferred to the national team, where he will likely be the focus of the attack once again against Poland.
However, not everything was good news for Mexico against Belgium. El Tri will be without Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, Edson Alvarez, Hector Herrera and Giovani dos Santos through injury, after all four players suffered knocks against the Red Devils.
Like Belgium, Poland will be no slouch. The “Eagles” are the sixth best team in the FIFA Rankings and are coming off a record of six wins, one draw, and one defeat enroute to qualifying to Russia 2018.
The one bit that is discouraging about this Poland team, though, is the absence of star player Robert Lewandowski. The Bayern Munich striker will miss this friendly through a thigh injury, which will be a big blow for a Poland team that many have as the surprise team in next year’s big tournament.
