For the second match during this FIFA date, Mexico will face Paraguay, and for said game, coach Gerardo Martino will present a different starting lineup than the one he used against Chile with the intention of observing all the players available on this call-up.

We leave you the eleven players with which the Mexican National team will probably appear in the duel on Tuesday, March 26 where a grand attendance is expected at Levi's Stadium.


Raúl Gudiño would start for El Tri against Paraguay; the 22-year-old keeper would receive his first major opportunity after debuting with Mexico against Costa Rica at the end of 2018. The goalie has consolidated as the starter for Chivas of the Liga MX.


Diego Reyes and Néstor Araujo would be the central pair; both defenders play in the Spanish League although Araujo has been the most regular with Celta de Vigo. On the right side, Mexico will count with the club America player, Jorge Sánchez and on the left would with Miguel Layún who recently returned to the Liga MX with Monterrey.


'Gallito' Vázquez would be the defensive midfielder on his return to the Mexican National Team after he was not taken into account with Juan Carlos Osorio. Jona Dos Santos and Erick Gutiérrez will be in the middle. The youngest of the Dos Santos has been a starter in the first three games with LA Galaxy of the MLS, while Gutiérrez has only played 80 minutes with PSV so far in 2019.


The attack of the Mexican National Team would be a mixture of youth and experience since Chicharito Hernández would be the center forward for this match followed by Diego Lainez and Roberto Alvarado. Lainez played some minutes in the game against Chile, and Cecilio Dominguez highlighted the qualities of the now Betis player, while Alvarado will look to show his own that he displayed in the last tournament with Cruz Azul.
