The match on Friday in San Salvador will not have any result on El Salvador’s hope to make it for Russia 2018. Osorio knows that the upcoming 90 minutes are crucial as they will pave the way for the summer events.
“With gaining three points, we have an excellent opportunity to get support from the fans of our national team. The thing we will need is confidence in ourselves. We know that we suffered a hard time, but now we can’t lose trust,” Osorio said.
“In life, everybody fails at some point in time, but it’s also the life which teaches to stand firm in the future and as soon as possible. I am expecting the same reaction from the team. With training sessions and meetings, I am confident that the team has regained fighting spirit. We hope to see it tomorrow. With quality and good gameplay, we can win the game.”
The manager Juan requires the team to get to the good form immediately after the stunning exit from the Copa America 2016.
Mexico will play the game without many regular players, especially in attack. Two players Javier Hernandez and Jesus Corona will not play as they are injured. Oribe Peralta has broken his nose during Olympics. Hirving Lozano can’t play as he has received a red card at Rio against South Africa.
Not only attackers but the absence of defenders like Pual Aguilar and Nester Araujo will be felt. Diego Reyes has been transferred to Espanyol.
Though Mexico will miss a lot of players, it should have enough to face opponents on Friday. Last time, both the teams faced each other in November last year in which Mexico turned out to be the winner by 3-0. As of now, El Salvador has fetched only two points in the first four games. In order to continue to keep hope for the final fixture against Canada, it will have to win today’s game.Mexico vs El Salvador Live Score
