Mexico vs El Salvador build-up & previous line-ups:
The defending champions had a false start when Trinidad and Tobago held Gerardo Martino’s men to a goalless draw. They subsequently made amends by running out 3-0 winners over Guatemala but they still need at least one more point to maintain their record of reaching the quarter-finals at every Gold Cup tournament. Across the last six editions Mexico have played the final on five occasions and won all but one when they finished runners-up to great rivals USA in 2007.
For only the sixth time across 12 tournament appearances El Salvador has reached the Gold Cup knockout phase. Their best finish remains a quarter-final berth which they’ve accomplished five times before this summer. La azul y Blanco started the 2021 finals with a routine 2-0 win over Guatemala before repeating that same result against Trinidad and Tobago meaning a point against Mexico secures Hugo Pérez’s side top spot of Group A.
- Mexico (vs Guatemala): Talavera; Rodríguez, Salcedo, Araújo, Gallardo; Álvarez, Gutiérrez, Herrera; Corona, Funes Mori, Pineda.
- El Salvador (vs Trinidad and Tobago): González; Tamacas, Rodriguez, Zavaleta, Larín; Cerén, Orellana; Pérez. Monterroza, Henríquez; Rivas.

Players to watch: Edson Álvarez (Mexico)
Halfway through last season Edson Álvarez finally broke through at Ajax, the 23-year-old was initially signed by the Amsterdammers as Matthijs de Ligt successor, but couldn’t hold down a regular centre-back starting berth. Instead, given his equal ability to play in midfield de Godenzonen boss Erik ten Hag would field him as a ‘number six’ and he subsequently thrived. So much so Álvarez is now among the first names on Ten Hag’s team sheet. His performances in the Gold Cup has so far been exemplary, whilst anchoring Mexico’s midfield no one is averaging more accurate passes per match (84.5) than him.
