Mexico vs Ivory Coast takes place in a soccer international friendly on Wednesday night, with Mexico looking to bounce back and regain some confidence following a disappointing showing in the Gold Cup 2013 tournament recently. The match kicks off at 9 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
Both Mexico and the Ivory Coast have called up refreshed squads composed of a mixture of youth and experience, hoping to try out a few things before the next round of competitive matches arrive.
Tonight's match up does not come from Mexico, but from the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, USA. However, despite the technically neutral venue for today's match up, make no mistake, this will be a clear home match for Mexico with thousands of Mexico supporters set to come out for today's game.
Mexico have called up uncapped Cruz Azul star Christian Gimenez and only once-capped Tigres star Damian Alvarez, both naturalized Argentinians. However, Lucas Lobos, was surprisingly left out of the squad for today's game.
Other stars not making it out today are European-based players Guillermo Ochoa, Hector Herrera, Andres Guardado and Javier Aquino.
Meanwhile, Hector Moreno, Diego Reyes and Giovani dos Santos were all called up for the squad tonight.
The Ivory Coast have also called up four uncapped players into their squad for their match against Mexico tonight. In addition, five other players selected have less than five caps each. It should be a big experience for those players, although it could end up being a long night for them if Mexico play to their potential.
