Here you will find the confirmed lineups of both teams for this game. Remember that you can follow all the action of this game in the US on FuboTV (free trial).
Only one week remains until the start of Qatar 2022. With official competition in most countries only ending last weekend, there has been very little window left for teams to play plenty of international friendlies to prepare for. That is why this week there will be several.
Mexico has been one of the few teams that have been able to have more than one friendly. Now they have the chance to prepare with a team that was very close to qualifying for the World Cup, so they are a tough rival. Sweden want to start preparing in the best way for what the Euro 2024 qualifiers will be.
The most important thing for Mexico against Sweden is to check the status of Raul Jimenez's health towards the World Cup. If he's not game ready, Santiago Giménez might come back to the squad as a replacement for Qatar. Guillermo Ochoa returns as starting goalkeeper and Hirving Lozano might come from the bench.
Mexico's lineup against Sweden: Guillermo Ochoa, César Montes, Jorge Sánchez, Héctor Moreno, Jesús Gallardo, Héctor Herrera, Carlos Rodríguez, Luis Chávez, Uriel Antuna, Henry Martin and Alexis Vega.
After being eliminated from Qatar 2022 in Path B of the UEFA playoffs by Poland, Sweden are looking for replacements that will allow them to return to the World Cup in 2026. In the Nations League, they come from a 4-1 loss against Serbia and a 1-1 draw with Slovenia.
Sweden's lineup against Mexico: Kristoffer Nordfeldt, Holm, Isak Hien, Victor Nilsson Lindelöf, Ludwig Augustinsson, Marcus Rohden, Simon Gustafson, Jesper Karlström, Mattias Svanberg, Anthony Elanga and Viktor Gyökeres.
