Mexico vs Canada build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Though they got off to a poor start, drawing 0-0 with Trinidad and Tobago, Mexico have grown into this tournament as it has progressed. Tata Martino’s side beat Honduras 3-0 last time out to reach this stage, following on from victories against Guatemala (3-0) and El Salvador (1-0). Mexico are the only side yet to concede a goal at this year’s Gold Cup.
Canada have been without Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David from the start of this tournament but still managed 4-1 wins over Martinique and Haiti during the group stages. To make matters worse, they also lost Cyle Larin and Ayo Akinola to injury following their final group match, which makes their 2-0 win over Costa Rica to reach this round even more impressive. Should The Canucks go one further, they’ll have achieved a feat not seen from Canada in 21 years. That said, as huge favourites to win Gold Cup, Mexico will represent their biggest test yet.
- Mexico (vs Honduras): Talavera; Rodriguez, Araujo, Moreno, Gallardo; Dos Santos, Alvarez, Herrera; Corona, Funes Mori, Pineda.
- Canada (vs Costa Rica): Crepeau; Johnston, Vitoria, Miller; Buchanan, Eustaquio, Kaye, Laryea; Hoilett, Cavallini, Osorio.
Martino brought Nestor Araujo and Jonathan dos Santos into his starting XI in place of Carlos Salcedo and Erick Gutierrez for the quarter-final win over Honduras and may stick with that line-up after an impressive performance. El Tri have no new injuries or suspensions to report.
Ayo Akinola and Cyle Larin were both ruled out after the final group game, dealing a huge blow to Canada’s attacking options with Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David already out.
Players to watch:
- Mexico: With Hirving Lozano sidelined for the entire tournament, Rogelio Funes Mori has taken on the burden of spearheading Mexico’s attack to great effect. Only Qatar’s Almoez Ali (4) has scored more than Funes Mori’s three goals, with the Monterrey striker most recently opening the scoring in El Tri‘s 3-0 quarter-final win over Honduras. Having only declared himself for Mexico earlier this year, Funes Mori has just five caps to his name. But already, he has four goals and if the Argentina-born forward can inspire his adopted nation to Gold Cup glory here, the wider Mexican fanbase will have no problem calling Funes Mori one of their own.
- Canada: That Canada have made it this far without Davies, David and, then, Larin is a phenomenal achievement, especially for a nation whose best Gold Cup performance since 2000 was the 2002 and 2007 semi-finals. Now that they’re here, they’ll want to go a step further but to do so, they’re going to need Lucas Cavallini in the form of his life. The Vancouver Whitecaps man is sixth on the all-time list of Canadian goalscorers with 16 strikes in 26 caps, five of which have come this year alone. Cavallini is yet to score at this tournament but did score against Mexico during the 2019 edition, while he also scored 30 goals during a two-and-a-half-year stay in Mexico with Puebla between 2017 and 2020, so is very familiar with El Tri‘s culture and style of play.
