After a slow start, losing their star man, El Tri will hope to book their place in the next round
Mexico is aimed at ensuring safe passage to the country Gold cup knockout blows on Sunday when they face group A leaders The Savior in Dallas.
El Salvador’s place in the next round was confirmed after victories over Guatemala and Trinidad and Tobago, but Mexico needed a victory or a draw. El Tri can still continue if they lose, but that will depend on Trinidad and Tobago not winning with Guatemala.
