El Salvador vs Mexico: El Tri Will Dominate in World Cup Qualifying Match
El Salvador will not enjoy a repeat of their 2010 World Cup qualifying victory over Mexico. This time, El Tri is ready, and they won't fall victim to the over-confidence that cost them in Cuscatlån two years ago.
In 2010, Mexico was defeated by El Salvador 2-1, it was their first lost in San Salvador in 17 years.
Because of that match, and in light of their less-than-stellar performance against Guyana on Friday night, the Mexicans will be amped and ready for this match. They defeated Guyana 3-1, but they aren't exactly a top-tier team, and many expected a much easier match for Mexico.
You can count head coach Chepo de la Torre in that number. Seth Vertelney of Goal.com quotes him:
The fans are right [to boo]. They're right because they came here to watch us win and we owed them tonight.
Who will score the first goal?
He may be a bit off-base speaking as if his team didn't win, but it's those high standards that will drive Mexico to reach its potential. They will be driven harder to improve upon their performance against Guyana, and also to ensure they don't suffer another setback at the hands of El Salvador.
Look for Giovani dos Santos to continue his solid play. He has scored a goal in each of his last three matches. The 23-year-old seems primed to have a stellar World Cup, and he should be good for at least one score against El Salvador tonight.

My prediction is a 3-0 victory for Mexico. This will be a statement match for them as they move on through the qualifying matches.
