Both Teams to Score – No

Guillermo Ochoa was the key reason behind Mexico’s amazing defensive run – four consecutive clean sheets. He made 11 saves in the last four games. Edson Alvarez, who plays for Ajax Amsterdam, was voted MVP in the game against Honduras as he scored the winning goal.
El Salvador’s Lineup
Mario Gonzalez must take the blame for El Salvador’s poor defensive performances recently. He conceded at least one goal in the last three games.
