The Mexican team will complete their International matches for 2014 with a visit to Belarus. This will be the first time Miguel Herrera's crew land in this territory, where low temperatures and an unknown environment will be waiting for them.
It seems Mexico have taken a turn into the right direction for the first time in years. After an above-average performance in this summer's World Cup, Miguel Herrera and his team managed to stay undefeated in their five recent friendly matches, and will try to keep that streak going against Belarus. Their previous match ended with a 3-2 victory against The Netherlands, earning themselves a little payback after being eliminated by the Oranje in the World Cup's Round of 16.
Mexico will try to take advantage of their ball control skills and their well placed defense. Coach Miguel Herrera revealed earlier he would try to give every player some playing time in this game, and the fans will expect to see more from Carlos Vela, who returned with El Tri against the Dutch after a four year absence. Real Sociedad's player will be the man to follow, along with some newcomers like Alfonso Gonzalez and a couple of rising stars like Diego Reyes and Hector Herrera.
On the other hand, Belarus get to this match in a bad luck streak. Andrei Zygmantovich's men have not been able to win a single match in their Euro 2016 Qualifying campaign, and will try to beat Luxembourg after the winter break to avoid finishing in last place of Group C. The absence of Alexander Hleb has proven too much to handle for the red, green and white team, and they will have to build around local champion BATE Borisov to get something going for them.
Their last match ended up with another defeat to former World Champion Spain, who had the luxury of trying a new formation against them. Mexico's style can complicate things for them, so their defenders may want to keep their eyes open for El Tri's playmaking capabilites.
