Match preview

2021 International Friendly, Mexico will play against with Panama home. Despite having reached the final of the CONCACAF Nations League, everyone associated with Mexico came away from the tournament feeling disappointed after their 3-2 defeat to the United States. Gerardo Martino witnessed his team twice give up a lead before eventually losing in extra time, costing them the chance to be crowned the inaugural champions of the competition. Martino now has the job of rousing his players ahead of the defence of their Gold Cup crown next month, and he will expect a positive response in Nashville. While El Tri have performed below par throughout 2021, there is a desire to get back on track against opponents who they defeated 3-0 as recently as November 2019. Mexico were held to a goalless draw by Honduras in their last friendly international, a scoreline also posted by Panama in their World Cup qualifier versus Curacao. Nevertheless, this group of players appear to be progressing under the guidance of former Leeds United boss Thomas Christiansen, who was appointed in the role last year. Although they have only squared off against some of the minnows of world football, Panama have five wins and two draws from their seven outings in 2021. The 13-0 demolition of Anguilla on June 6 naturally caught the eye, but momentum and his squad playing with confidence will matter more to Christiansen. With Honduras and Qatar in their Gold Cup group, Los Canaleros will have to perform to their best to reach the quarter-finals, but a meeting with Mexico is the ideal fixture to test themselves ahead of next month's competition.


Mexico possible starting lineup:
Ochoa; Araujo, Alvarez, Moreno; L.Rodriguez, Herrera, C.Rodriguez, Gallardo; Antuna, Martin, Lainez

Panama possible starting lineup:
Mejia; Palacios, Cummings, Andrade, Davis; Carrasquilla, Godoy; Quintero, Barcenas, Rodriguez; Fajardo
