Mexico’s soccer team has the perfect opportunity to build momentum.
“El Tri” will face New Zealand on Wednesday in their second of three 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Group A games. Mexico can overtake Russia for second place with a victory, while New Zealand needs a win to preserve its fading hopes of advancing to the semifinals.
Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio is expected to field a weaker lineup than the one that played Portugal to a draw Sunday. Center back Rafael Marquez, 38, likely will start and become the second-oldest player to have ever featured in the tournament.
New Zealand is winless in the 10 Confederations Cup games it has played in team history. The Kiwis also are enduring a 513-minute goal-less streak.
Here’s how to watch Mexico vs. New Zealand online.
