Mexico vs Canada takes place in the Gold Cup 2013 CONCACAF soccer tournament on Thursday night with Mexico desperate to bounce back from their opening game upset against Panama to whom they lost 2-1. The match will kick off at 11 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Mexico probably took place in the biggest shock of this year's tournament to date in their opening game, and not many would have predicted that the Mexican team would have imploded so spectacularly.
The 2-1 defeat to Panama left some so upset in Mexico that they called for the head of Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre. Mexico have had a tough past year, struggling to find any kind of consistent form and coming out with numerous disappointing displays and results.
Their opposition tonight will be Canada, who also lost their opening game of their Gold Cup 2013 campaign. They were also left disappointed with their start to the tournament, losing to tiny Martinique after giving up a 93rd minute goal.
Those loses mean that this Group A game becomes a must win for both teams if they hope to progress. A loss for either will see them almost certainly eliminated.
Mexico will again be big favorites to win this game, as they were in their opening game. They will be desperate to make some amends for their poor display against Panama, but Canada will be in no mood just to act as fodder for them to capture back form. Canada will want to cause an upset of their own, and will be buoyed on by Mexico's consistent poor form through the past 12 months or so.
