Mexico vs. Russia live stream, TV channel: Watch Confederations Cup 2017 online, Hosts Russia go into their final 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 semifinal spot in the tournament.
Coach Juan Carlos Osorio said it will be the perfect opportunity to show that Mexican soccer has matured and reached a level at which it can succeed under the most difficult circumstances.
“I honestly think that this is the perfect scenario for Mexican football,” Osorio said Friday. “We play away from home, against the host team, with a lot of support from their fans, and fighting for the qualification. We need to control the game and to show to ourselves, especially, that we can compete under such difficult circumstances.”
Defender Hector Moreno may not play against Russia because of a muscle injury. Moreno scored the stoppage-time equalizer in Mexico’s 2-2 opening draw against European champions Portugal.
Mexico came from behind to defeat New Zealand 2-1 in its second Confederations Cup game. Guardado said he was glad that Mexican fans have stopped homophobic chants that prompted a warning by FIFA.
