Mexico vs. El Salvador - CONCACAF Gold Cup 2017 - Group C

Mexico, the busiest national team program in CONCACAF 2017, start their 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup slate with a clash against Central American team of El Salvador in Southern California. El Tricolor will be bringing an experimental team, having played their 1st team in June's 2018 World Cup qualifiers and in the recent FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 in Russia, Mexico finished 4th.

Even with a team built almost completely of domestic-based players, most of whom have fewer than 10 caps, Mexico will be big favorites over El Salvador, who are still working to rebuild after a 2013 match-fixing scandal that led to more than a dozen lifetime bans for national team players. El Salvador are bringing a fairly experienced team, and hoping for an upset over Mexico - would be a legendary result.

Mexico enters the Gold Cup as defending champions. Confederations Cup 2017 was the top priority for Juan Carlos Osorio this summer. Osorio will be in a similar position to the US national team's: Calling up new players, youngsters and fringe players to see if any could make the jump to future competitive rosters.

Mexico has played 2 tune-up friendly matches ahead of the Gold Cup 2017 - 1-0 win over Ghana on Jun. 28, 2017 in Houston and a 2-1 win over Paraguay in Seattle on Jul. 1, 2017. Given the competition for places in Mexico's squad and the youth of many of the call-ups for this tournament, don't confuse Mexico's youth for not taking the Gold Cup 2017 seriously.

Forward Alan Pulido has been forced to pull out of the Gold Cup 2017 tournament. Houston Dynamo striker Erick "Cubo" Torres has been called in, as Pulido's replacement. It's tough to predict the lineup for this encounter, but given that Torres is joining the team late, he'll likely be a bench option.

El Salvador comes into the Gold Cup 2017 looking to return to the knockout stage for the first time since 2013, and will likely be competing with Jamaica for the 2nd place in Group C. Any kind of result against Mexico is a tall order, but if El Salvador can manage it, they'll go a long way to clinching that berth to advance.

El Salvador played at the Copa Centroamericana in January 2017. El Salvador finished 3rd in Panama behind champions Honduras and the hosts. El Salvador matched their best ever showing in the regional tournament. El Salvador have played 2 friendly matches in the United States, a 2-2 draw against Honduras in Washington in May 2017 and a 3-0 loss to Ecuador at Red Bull Arena in June 2017.

El Salvador's head coach is Eduardo Lara, who joined El Salvador's youth national team program in 2015 before taking the reins of the senior team last year. Prior to coming to Central America, Lara's experience was on the club and national team levels in his native Colombia, including a stint as interim manager of the Colombian national team during 2010 World Cup qualification.
