Brazil Vs. Mexico, 2012 Olympics: Lineups

With Giovani dos Santos out injured, Mexico have decided to pack the center of their midfield as opposed to reverting to the lineup they used during the first two games of the Olympics. All of Hector Herrera, Carlos Salcido and Jorge Enriquez start in the center and will do their best to stifle Brazil's attack through the center of the pitch. Brazil is sitting down Hulk yet again, with Alex Sandro getting a second consecutive start.

Brazil Lineup (4-2-3-1): Gabriel; Marcelo, Thiago Silva, Juan, Rafael; Romulo, Sandro; Alex Sandro, Oscar, Neymar; Leandro Damiao

Mexico Lineup (4-3-3): Corona; Chavez, Mier, Reyes, Jimenez; Enriquez, Herrera, Salcido; Fabian, Peralta, Aquino

Kickoff is at 10 a.m. ET, 3 p.m. local time from Wembley Stadium in London. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Network in the United States.
