Mexico vs. Jamaica preview: TV schedule, streaming and more

Miguel Tovar

Mexico will get their Hex campaign underway in front of 100,000 green-clad fans at the famed Estadio Azteca.

Mexico is the unquestioned best team in CONCACAF, who many predict to roll through the final round of World Cup qualifying and it all gets underway on Wednesday when they welcome their first first victim opponent, Jamaica, to Estadio Azteca.

It is clear the Reggae Boyz don't have any dreams of upending El Tri in their famed home after listening to manager Theodore Whitmore speak incessantly about going to Mexico with the goal of not losing. Never once did he say they were there to win, which is just realistic. Worse Mexico teams have beaten teams much better than Jamaica at Azteca, where El Tri have only lost one qualifying match ever.

With Andres Guarado in phenomenal form to play left of Javier Hernandez and Giovani dos Santos, Mexico's attack will be fine regardless of who is on the right. Pablo Barrera is still recovering from a torn ACL, but likely starter Javier Aquino is plenty good enough to fill in and will look even better with the other three members of the attacking quartet.

For the first time ever, Americans will be able to watch Mexico in English all Hex, too. ESPN recently bought the rights to all of Mexico's matches, making the region's best team available each qualifying date, beginning this Wednesday.

Match Date/Time: Wednesday, February 6; 9:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Estadio Azteca, Mexico City, Mexico

TV: ESPN2 (English), Univision Deportes and UniMas (Spanish)

Streaming: ESPN3
