Mexico enters this game unmotivated, after a foreign snub, 1-0, in the visit to the United States. The Mexican team usually acts in a 4-3-3, favoring a slower style of play, channeling their attacks, preferably, through the central corridor. In this tactical design, the three players usually chosen to act in the line of attack are Alvarado, Zaldívar and Lainez. However, being a friendly match, it is clear that the coach of Mexico opts to give a chance to less used players, such as Alan Pulido, Jonathan dos Santos and Jesus Angulo.

In the previous friendlies it registered the following markers: Japan (3-0) Costa Rica, Republic of Korea (2-0) Costa Rica, Belgium (4-1) Costa Rica, England (2-0) Costa Rica, Costa Rica ( 3-0) Northern Ireland, Tunisia (1-0) Costa Rica and Scotland (0-1) Costa Rica.

Costa Rica enters this unmotivated match, after a 3-0 defeat in a friendly against Japan. So, the foreign formation seems to be going through a rather difficult moment, since it has seven consecutive matches without winning. The visiting team usually acts in a 5-3-2, favoring a slower and organized game. For this, you can count on the completion capacity of David Ramírez. Of note that the Costa Rican selection presents some actors with individual quality.
