As Mexico prepares for the World Cup, Tata Martino will have two key things to resolve. First, he is replacing Jesús Corona who will miss the world cup after breaking his fibula. That leaves Martino with one option for his starting lineup, one he hopes will solve El Tri’s second problem, getting a struggling attack going. Martino has not decided on a starting striker but has confirmed that Carlos Vela and Javier Hernández will not be in his World Cup squad.

Vela ruled himself out of contention while Chicharito kept the door open, but will not be called up 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 matches, he has only scored multiple goals three times while relying on the defense to get the job done. But that won’t work at the World Cup in a group with Poland, Argentina and Saudi Arabia.

Facing Peru, which narrowly missed out on qualifying for Qatar, will be a good rehearsal for El Tri, especially in a stadium as historic as the Rose Bowl.

Mexico: Raúl Jiménez will miss the game due to injury making Martino’s choice as striker even more important as injuries mount for El Tri. Hirving Lozano has struggled for the national team, but this would be an important moment for him to step up as the team needs him. All eyes will be on Edson Álvarez as Peru have an attack that can worry Mexico, so his role at the base of the midfield will be important to keep the match under control.

Peru: After missing out on the world cup due to a penalty shootout with Australia, Peru will still want to win every match against World Cup opposition to prepare for their next cycle of matches. Andre Carrillo and Christina Cueva will give Mexico’s defense some trouble. Yoshimar Yotun will also be back to lead the attack.

Prediction

In a chippy match, Mexico will eventually score a late winner as Peru pushes them to the brink. To choose: Mexico 2, Peru 1
