Mexico and Chile are a beacon of light in a dark day of football. The international break has left us with a nothing to watch on a Sunday, which is a big enough travesty that you will not be blamed for weeping. The one match we do get is actually a fun matchup, or would be if it mattered and either team really cared. if we're lucky, the meaningless nature of the match will mean Mexico and Chile fly forward with abandon and give us a 9-7 match.
For Mexico, they have finally started Giovani dos Santos, but it's hardly a full strength squad. For various reasons, the starting lineup has no Javier Hernandez, Pablo Barrera, Andres Guardado, Gerrardo Torrado and a couple more regulars along the back line. It's not like Chile is at full strength either, with Humberto Suazo, Alexis Sanchez or Mauricio Isla is the starting lineup. So basically, everyone fun is missing.
