Mexico vs Honduras build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:

With the United States bringing a young side to this tournament and Canada missing Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David through injury, Mexico are strong favourites to win their 12th Gold Cup. But despite taking seven points from their three group games without conceding a goal, Tata Martino’s men haven’t exactly been convincing, putting in laboured performances against the likes of Trinidad and Tobago and El Salvador.

Honduras will provide a stern test of Mexico’s credentials. Though they haven’t won this tournament since 1981, Fabián Coito’s side have plenty of talent to hurt Concacaf’s best on their day and, what’s more, are unbeaten against El Tri in their last two meetings, drawing 0-0 in June and beating Mexico 3-2 in World Cup qualifying back in 2017.

  • Mexico (vs El Salvador): Talavera; Rodriguez, Moreno, Salcedo, Gallardo; Herrera, Alvarez, Gutierrez; Pineda, Funes Mori, Corona.
  • Honduras (vs Qatar): Lopez; Crisanto, Alvarez, Figueroa, Leveron; Flores, Acosta; Benavidez, Lopez, Rodriguez; Quioto.

Neither side have any fresh injury concerns heading into this quarter-final.

Player to watch: Rogelio Funes Mori (Mexico)

Though they continue to dominate the North American scene, Mexico have struggled for goals in the absence of Raul Jimenez since November. Even as strong favourites, this is a problem they need to address if they’re going to lift another Gold Cup.

Rogelio Funes Mori bagged two goals in a 3-0 win over Guatemala during the group stages, making him the only El Tri player to score more than once at this year’s tournament. The Argentine-born striker only declared himself for Mexico at the start of this year but already has three goals in four caps for his adopted nation and appears to be Martino’s best option to replace the output of Jimenez.

Already an icon for his impressive exploits with Monterrey — scoring 121 goals in all competitions and winning four trophies since 2015 — Funes Mori will be taken to the hearts of the wider Mexican fanbase if he can guide El Tri to Gold Cup success this summer.
