(Sporting Alert) — Mexico go in search of another win in the final round of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica, who have already booked their place to Brazil for next summer.
Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez, despite not quite impressing in recent starts, keep his place in the starting lineup for Mexico, who are hoping to pick up another positive result like the one they did at home against Panama on Friday night.
However, winger Giovani dos Santos has been dropped to bench, with the likes of Javier Aquino, Oribe Peralta and Jesús Zavala starting.
Carlos Salcido and Gerardo Torrado are also on the substitutes bench as well.
Bryan Ruiz and Joel Campbell are set to be a handful for the Mexican defenders, while Johnny Zamora, Giancarlo Gonzalez, Bryan Oviedo and Yeltsin Tejeda start as well.
