Mexico will look to move a step closer to World Cup qualification when they host Honduras on Monday at 12am (UK time).
Gerardo Martino’s El Tri are currently second in the CONCACAF Third Round table after four games, level on points with leaders United States, but the landscape is not quite so rosy near the foot of the pile for Honduras, who are winless and three points adrift of the automatic qualification places.

Mexico vs Honduras build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
It’s been a promising start to the CONCACAF Third Round for Mexico, who opened their campaign with two wins against Jamaica and Costa Rica, but draws with Panama and Canada in the proceeding two games have just halted their charge to the summit, meaning Martino will be looking to get back to winning ways here.
For Honduras, just the single defeat does not paint a particularly bad picture, but coach Fabian Coito will know that his side must start converting draws — of which they have three from four games — into wins, or risk stagnating near the bottom of the standings. Three points here would send out a serious statement.
- Mexico (vs Canada): Ochoa; Sanchez, Montes, Araujo, Gallardo; Herrera, Alvarez, Guardado; Corona, Lozano, Jimenez.
- Honduras (vs Costa Rica): L Lopez; Najar, Maldonado, Figueroa, Rodriguez; Moya, Arriaga, Flores, A Lopez, Rivas; Elis.
After a calf injury kept Javier Hernandez out for a protracted period of time, the 109-capped poacher has only just returned to action for LA Galaxy but was not able to receive a call-up by Martino here, while the likes of experienced trident Diego Reyes, Miguel Layun and Carlos Salcedo have also missed out on making the squad this month.

Player to watch: Hirving Lozano (Mexico)
With a backline as porous as Honduras’, with Los Catrachos conceding five goals in four games, giving them the second-worst defensive record in the CONCACAF Third Round, Mexico could have a field day if their most potent attacking weapons are on song. One player who could seriously look to exploit that fragile rearguard is Hirving Lozano, who has made another blistering start to the campaign at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona, scoring twice and assisting twice in Serie A, as Napoli sit atop the table after a perfect seven-game winning streak. The tricky winger offers an element of unpredictability and panache that could seriously trouble Coito’s defence, and if Mexico do happen to run into issues with finding gaps in the final third, Lozano’s direct approach could be the key to unlocking doors. He recently returned to the national side after an eight-game absence and marked the occasion with an assist in the 1-1 draw against Canada, so he will be eager to build on that performance here.
