This matchup will be useful for the Argentine manager Gerardo Martino prior to the CONCACAF Nations League. Those games may be useful to evaluate a more deep list of players that didn't have a chance before, such as Fernando Beltran, from Chivas, or Santiago Gimenez, from Cruz Azul.

Mexico National team starting XI: Rodolfo Cota; Erick Aguirre, Cesar Montes, Héctor Moreno, Jesus Gallardo; Fernando Beltrán, Luis Romo, Andrés Guardado; Roberto Alvarado, Santiago Gimenez and Rodolfo Pizarro.
