As Mexico prepares for the World Cup, Tata Martino has two important things to clarify. First, Jesus replaces Corona who will miss the World Cup after breaking his fibula. That leaves Martino with a choice for his starting lineup, which he hopes will solve El Tri’s second problem and get a fighting attack going. Martino has yet to commit to a starting striker, but he has confirmed that Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez will not be included in his World Cup squad.

Vela has ruled himself out of the competition while Chicharito kept the door open but is not nominated by his national team coach despite scoring 15 goals and assisting two more for the Los Angeles Galaxy this season. In Mexico’s last 10 games, they’ve scored multiple goals just three times while relying on defense to get the job done. But that won’t work at the World Cup in a group with Poland, Argentina and Saudi Arabia.

Taking on Peru, who just missed out on qualifying for Qatar, will be a good test for El Tri, especially at a stadium as historic as the Rose Bowl.

Mexico: Raul Jimenez will miss the game through injury, making Martino’s choice of forward even more important as injuries mount for El Tri. Hirving Lozano has struggled for the national team but this would be an important time for him to step up as the team needs it. All eyes will be on Edson Alvarez as Peru have an attack that could cause some concerns for Mexico so his role in lower midfield will be important to keep the game under control.

Peru: After missing out on the World Cup after a penalty shoot-out with Australia, Peru still want to win every game against their World Cup opponents to prepare for the next game cycle. Andre Carrillo and Christina Cueva will cause some problems for the Mexican defense. Yoshimar Yotun will also be back in the squad to speed up the attack.
