Mexico: 5 Key Battles to Watch in El Tri's Qualifier vs. Honduras

Mexico is set to visit Honduras for the second match of the Hexagonal. There are new names compared to those that were capped against Jamaica, and this game requires more precision and focus.

El Tri needs to make a good impression in San Pedro Sula next Friday. The national team could not win its opener against the Reggae Boyz, even though it was held at the Estadio Azteca.

This time, José Manuel de la Torre has called two of the most efficient strikers in the Liga MX: Omar Bravo and Raúl Jiménez. He also capped Gerardo Torrado, who will definitively bring experience to the pitch.

The manager left the defense untouched. Héctor Moreno and Francisco Javier Rodríguez will continue to lead Mexico's backbone.

Honduras is full of young promises like Jerry Bengtson and Mario Martínez. These footballers have been instrumental in the qualification process, proof of it was the last match against the United States.

The encounter between El Tri and La Selecta has always been one of the toughest in CONCACAF, and Mexico has yet to win a game at Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano.

Join me to find out which will be the key battles of the game.
