Mexico vs Costa Rica - Team news
El Tri make it to this game having won Group B with six points. The team led by Jaime Lozano won its first two matches, but went through a frustrating match against Qatar that ended in a one-nil defeat. Now, Mexico return to the quarterfinals of the competition, a stage where they have not been eliminated since the 2005 edition of the tournament. With a full squad to choose from, El Tri is seen as the favorite to win this tie, although their strikers Henry Martín and Santiago Giménez will need to turn it up a notch to help the Mexicans make it past this stage.
On the other side of the pitch, Costa Rica enter this clash after ending the previous stage in second place behind Panama in Group C. Nevertheless, Los Ticos make it to this tie in high spirits, following their electric and historic 6-4 win over Martinique in the final match, which sealed their spot in this round. That win came at the right moment for Costa Rica, as they had gone five games without a win prior to it, with only one of those ending in a draw. Now, coach Luis Fernando Suárez will want to see a winning streak for his men to ease the pressure on his job while also securing a milestone for the Central American team against Mexico in Gold Cup matches.
Both sides have declared their entire squads as fit to play, which will make this game even more enticing to watch.
