The two top teams in Group C of the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup will meet on Thursday, when Mexico take on Jamaica at the Sports Authority Field in Denver, Colorado.
Both teams have made winning starts to the tournament, with El Tri beating El Salvador 3-1 on Monday, while Jamaica earned a 2-0 win against Curacao.
This is a chance for holders Mexico to take control of the group and prove their credentials as potential winners of the tournament.
Hernandez “scored one goal and assisted on the other two, including a pinpoint set-piece delivery to the head of Hedgardo Marin to open the scoring,” per Charles Boehm of MLSSoccer.com. Playing the Club Leon man with intelligent forward Martin Barragan and Chivas’ attacking midfielder Orbelin Pineda gives Mexico ample fluidity in the final third.
Winning in the opener came while manager Juan Carlos Osorio missed out through suspension. In his place, assistant Luis Pompilio Paez oversaw things.
Paez was left impressed, but he called for El Tri to maintain concentration, particularly when defending a lead, per the tournament’s official website: “They have to be able to keep the same mentality after we score, so that the opponent doesn’t take advantage of a lapse and begin to attack and score.”
Jamaica’s best chance of earning an upset win will likely reside with forward Darren Mattocks. The 26-year-old scored against Curacao and saves his best for tournament play, per Boehm.
The bigger question for the Reggae Boyz will be whether they can keep things tight enough at the back to resist the pace, perceptive movement and artful passing Mexico are sure to unleash on them.
It’s easy to believe Mexico will dispatch Jamaica with room to spare. El Tri usually save their best for the Gold Cup, and this match is the perfect time for the holders to showcase their quality.
