How Martin Green views Mexico vs Costa Rica?
Mexico looks dominant to Green but he’s leaning heavily on under 2.5 goals. Mexico that holds 11th position on the latest FIFA rankings also boasts of a strong forward position. Mexico beat Iceland 2-0 in a friendly match on May 29 and both the goals were scored by the forward striker Hirving Lozano. Jesus Corona is another star player in Mexico.
Costa Rica ranks 30th on the FIFA rankings but its players are way forward than those of Mexico. Six of the Costa Rica players used to play in the US with five Major League Soccer players. They are Luis Diaz, Randall Leal, Francisco Calvo, Ronald Matarrita and Allan Cruz. On the contrary, Mexico has only Alan Pulido that has played in the United States.
