Mexico vs El Salvador will take place Tuesday evening in the final game of the CONCACAF qualifiers. Mexico have gone unbeaten in their previous fives games and will be looking to make it a clean sweep with a win tonight. The match kicks off at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream via the link provided below.
Mexico enter this game already knowing they are through to the hexagonal round, and it could be a temptation to sit back and relax. However, their opposition El Salvador can afford no such luxury and are desperate to win to have any chance of keeping their World Cup 2014 hopes alive.
El Tri come into this game following a win against Guyana on Friday. It was far from a vintage performance, but it was another win nonetheless. For 77 minutes Guyana had frustrated Mexico, and El Tri had hit the post numerous times and missed some glaring opportunities. However, once the floodgates were broken the goals rushed in. Mexico ended up scoring 5 goals in the last quarter of an hour to win the tie 5-0.
El Salvador meanwhile come into this tie on the back of a frustrating and disappointing loss to Costa Rica. If they had won that game last Friday they would have qualified for the hexagonal stage. But that loss now means they have to travel to Mexico and face probably the most difficult team in the qualifiers needing a win.
However, El Salvador's qualification is now out of their own hands, and for them to qualify they must now beat Mexico, as well as hope Costa Rica drop some points to Guyana.
