The Mexican National Team is playing for a ticket to Qatar 2022 against the United States and Gerardo Martino has already chosen the 11 players who will face the match at the Azteca Stadium.
Gerardo Martino understands what is at stake on Thursday against the United States in the qualifying match for Qatar 2022. That is why he has a full squad after the arrival of the players from Europe and those who were included in the emergency call-up, the coach has already begun to plan the lineup.
Gerardo Martino will present a lineup with the best he has for this call-up and will not hold anything back, as a victory against the Stars and Stripes, combined with a Panama defeat against Honduras and Costa Rica's failure to win against Canada, would put his ticket to the World Cup in the bag.
This is the possible lineup for Mexico vs. the United States
As usual, Guillermo Ochoa will be in goal, the Águilas' goalkeeper will also wear the captain's badge in the absence of Andrés Guardado, who is out due to injury and did not even travel to Mexico, nor was he considered.
For the defense, Jorge Sánchez will be the right-back; César Montes and Héctor Moreno in the center and Gerardo Arteaga, who seems to have snatched the starting left-back position from Jesús Gallardo, as the Rayados player is not performing well.
In the midfield, Edson Álvarez will be in contention, while on the flanks it will be Héctor Herrera and on the other, the doubt is between Carlos Rodríguez or Erick Gutiérrez, who in Juan Carlos Osorio's era was called to be Guardado's natural replacement, but due to different playing absences and injuries, he has not been able to be.
Upfront, there will be a new opportunity for the trident formed by Raúl Jiménez, Jesús Manuel Corona, and Hirving Lozano, who together have only delivered one victory, one draw, and two defeats.
