Live TV broadcast listings: El Salvador vs Mexico - Sep 2, 2016 World Cup qualifier

September 1, 2016 By Oscar Rojas
El Salvador is on the verge of elimination. In order to avoid it, they'll have to beat a Mexican team still shaken up by that 7-0 blowout in the Copa América Centenario.

Broadcast info

Who's playing? El Salvador will host Mexico on Friday, in what has become their last chance of making it to the Final Round of the Qualifiers. La Selecta has struggled all year long with issues away from the pitch, complicating their performances in the qualifying process.

On the other side of the pitch, Mexico enters this game with nothing but redeption on their minds. After being exposed by Chile during the summer, coach Juan Carlos Osorio needs to find strength again to lead El Tri, knowing that a loss against El Salvador could cost him his job as Mexico's boss.

What time? 19:06 PDT/ 21:06 CDT/ 22:06 EDT

What stadium? Estadio Cuscatlán, located in San Salvador. "El Coloso de Monserrat" is expected to have a sellout crowd of 53,400 fans when El Tri visits the team on Friday.

Team news

The hosts have found it hard to put up a competitive squad for this game, even if it's a home game against Mexico. La Selecta even had to search for new training grounds last week, since their Federation forgot to schedule their training session at Estadio Cuscatlán in advance. A local team was supposed to train at the same time, and as unbelievable as it may sound, El Salvador's National Team got kicked out of their own stadium.

Here's Ramon Maradiaga's squad for the upcoming games.

As for Mexico, things took an ugly turn after being demolished by Chile in the Copa América Centenario. Fans and experts demanded Juan Carlos Osorio's sacking, but his bosses chose otherwise. Now, with the absence of key players such as "Chicharito" Hernández, Oribe Peralta and Jesús "Tecatito" Corona, Mexico will try to keep their perfect run in the qualifiers going. If they can't, Osorio's future would no doubt be in jeopardy once again.

Mexico's attack will be led most likely by Benfica's Raul Jimenez and Hirving Lozano, who played in the 2016 Olympics for El Tri. Here's their full squad for these games.
