03 Jul Mexico starting lineup Haiti: Andres Guardado, Jonathan dos Santos match to begin in midfield
The veteran midfielder captains El Tri after having his position in doubt due to a knock
Andres Guardado is beginning for the Mexico nationwide team in its semifinal against Haiti.
The veteran captain was in uncertainty for this match, with director Tata Martino stating the inside midfielder was coping with a knock picked up at the next match of the championship – an accident that nearly directed Martino to rest in the quarterfinal against Costa Rica.
But he began and will do this again. So also will Jonathan dos Santos, who came from this quarterfinal whining of a cramp but explained after the game he’d be fit for tonight’s competition despite just 3 times between the experiences. In between, Edson Alvarez once more plays as the holding midfielder.
There are just two changes to the group which topped the Ticos in a penalty shootout to maneuver the last four. Veteran center back Hector Moreno makes his first start of the tournament after suffering an accident in a pre-competition friendly and receiving his initial moments against Costa Rica in additional time Saturday. He takes the location of Nestor Araujo. Up high, Uriel Antuna is substituted with Roberto Alvarado.
Which signifies the fullbacks, Jesus Gallardo on the abandoned and Luis”Chaka” Rodrigez on the correct, will be exactly the same as they’ve been the whole tournament. Center forwards Raul Jimenez also begins for the fifth successive game. Rodolfo Pizarro begins on the left wing and float indoors to make chances too.
Haiti is sticking with the heart of its team too, together with the three-pronged assault of Duckens Nazon, Herve Bazile and Frantzdy Pierrot beginning and Derrick Etienne inclined to come off the seat. Jhony Placide begins and captains that the team in the goalkeeper box yet more, using Andrew Jean Baptiste, Alex Christian, Jems Geffrad and Carlens Arcus at a back four before him. Wilde-donald Guerrier, the protagonist of Haiti’s 3-2 comeback victory over Canada, is at the midfield along with Steeven Saba and Bryan Alecus.
