Gerardo Martino brings two new players into the fold for potential debuts, but without Hector Moreno, Carlos Salcedo and Miguel Layun at the back, plus no Raul Jimenez, his side do look a little shakier than perhaps hoped for.

Predicted Mexico starting XI: Talavera; L. Rodriguez, Araujo, Sepulveda, Gallardo; Corona, Romo, Dos Santos, Pizarro; Pineda, Funes Mori.

Position Jamaica roster
Goalkeepers Blake, Barnes, Taylor
Defenders Pinoock, Lowe, Powell, Harding, Lawrence, Mariappa, Moore, Bell, Fisher, King*, Brown
Midfielders Morrison, Johnson, D. Williams, Stewart*, Grant*, Turgott, Magee, Vassell, Walker, Morris
Forwards Decordova-Reid, Flemmings, Bailey, Burke, Nicholson, East, R. Williams, Lowe, Roofe*, Antonio*, Campbell

*denotes uncapped player

Having drawn domestically for their Gold Cup campaign, the Reggae Boyz now turn to a heavily European-centric squad as they look to bolster their outside chance of making it to Qatar.

The headline inclusions are West Ham’s Michail Antonio – called up for but never capped by England – and Rangers’ Kemar Roofe, though due to quarantine rules, the majority of the England-based players will miss out entirely for this first clash.
