In the back line, we’ll have five defenders.
From the right Paul Aguilar will try his best to help in the attacking zone, which is one of his strengths. Aguilar is strong and fast, and can come back in time to avoid a counter-attack.
Three footballers will guard the center of the box.
Juan Carlos Valenzuela has only been capped 12 times with El Tri, and although being an undisputed starter with his club, he has a long way to go, especially when it comes to mindset. His main challenge will be staying focused.
With four years experience of playing in the Bundesliga, Francisco Rodriguez is one of the most experienced Mexican centre-backs and he will be a cornerstone of Mexico's backbone.
Right in front of Munoz we’ll see Rafael Marquez, who despite being 34 years old, has a fine touch and a fierceness that many envy.
Finally, Miguel Layun will be in charge of the left flank. He is fast, which often sets him as a game changer; however, he struggles when he has to go back to his position as left-back.
