After a comfortable win in the first game of Copa America 2015, Chile stands atop Group A defeating Ecuador. Bolivia and Mexico are the other two teams in the group set to clash against each other on Friday at Estadio Sausalito.
With the CONACAF Gold Cup starting in July, Mexico does not have of some of their star players such as Guillermo Ochoa, Giovani dos Santos and Javier Hernández, so the present squad may not be the best squad Mexico have sent.
Some critics even feel that Mexico might not even progress in the knock-out stages of the competition with their below par team.
Coach Miguel Herrera defended by stating that they have not brought a B Team to Chile for the tournament.
"I remind all the people we have two tournaments. Mexico are the only team in the world that is able to compete in both tournaments [other than Jamaica], but this has never been a 'B' team. Our goal is to get to the final and to win it," Copa America 2015 official website quoted Miguel Herrera as saying.
He believes that he has brought good players for the Copa America. "[We have brought] some stars, the best goalkeeper in Mexico at the moment in José Corona. There are Liguilla players, World Cup players, Rafa Marquez who has played in four World Cups."
Though Miguel Herrera might consider José Corona to be their best goalie, but his performance against Brazil of late, which they lost 2-0 was not what anyone would have been impressed with.
Bolivia, of late has not been able to perform in the Copa America, as they have failed to reach the finals after their performance in 1997, where they lost against Brazil in the finals.
The team will depend on the services of the experienced players, but more importantly, they will want their key striker, Marcelo Moreno, to fire on all cylinders. Moreno has it in him to create havoc in Mexico's defence, which can be exploited with pace.
There are two bright talents in the Bolivian team, Danny Bejarano, 21, and Sebastián Gamarra, 18, and a lot is expected from the duo, if given a chance.
