YEKATERINBURG, Russia: Mexico are unchanged for Wednesday’s Group F match against Sweden at the World Cup, the first time in 50 games that Juan Carlos Osorio has kept the same XI.
Sweden, who are locked in a battle with Germany to qualify for the last 16, are also unchanged.
Striker Javier Hernandez will again lead the attack for Mexico, who top Group F with two wins from two but have not yet quite qualified themselves.
Coach Osorio keeps faith with the same team that beat South Korea 2-1 to place one foot in the knockout rounds.
His counterpart Janne Andersson also resisted the temptation to make any changes, despite their agonising last-gasp 2-1 defeat to Germany.
Jimmy Durmaz, the winger who was racially abused online after giving away the free-kick that led to Germany’s winner, is again on the bench for Sweden.
