Soccer: Mexican National Team vs Trinidad & Tobago Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Plenty of surprises in Juan Carlos Osorio’s starting XI against Trinidad and Tobago. For starters, Guillermo Ochoa sits this one out, with Alfredo Talavera getting the start.

On the defense, Atlas wingback Luis Reyes gets his first ever start with the national team, while Diego Reyes looks to take over the injured Rafa Marquez in the defensive midfielder/sweeper position.

Perhaps with height in mind, Jesus Molina starts over Jonathan dos Santos in the midfield, while Miguel Layun could be a surprise feature as a winger.

Finally, the ones in charge of scoring the goals will be Raul Jimenez and Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez, who will be looking to become Mexico’s lone all-time leading goalscorer with 47 goals.

You will be able to watch the game at 7:00pm EST on Telemundo, BeIn Sports, and fuboTV.

Mexico Lineup: Talavera; Salcedo, Araujo, Moreno, Reyes; Herrera, Reyes, Molina, Layun; Jimenez, Chicharito

Trinidad and Tobago Lineup: J. Williams; M. Williams, Cyrus, David, Gonzales, J. Jones, Hyland, George, Molino, Cato, K. Jones
