Mexico vs. Trinidad and Tobago, 2013 Gold Cup quarterfinals: Preview and TV schedule

Otto Greule Jr

El Tri will expect a win, but Trinidad and Tobago have plenty of dangerous attacking players and have already sprung an upset over Honduras in this competition.

A less than impressive group stage for Mexico has given way to the quarterfinals and stronger opponents. El Tri lost their only game against a true quality opponent in this tournament, Panama, while defeating a couple of weaker opponents in Canada and Martinique. Trinidad and Tobago, likely somewhere between Panama and the teams Mexico beat, should provide a solid test,

T&T emerged from the tournament's deepest group in second place, edging out El Salvador on goals scored. They were surprisingly poor in a loss to Haiti in their second match of the tournament, but surprisingly turned in a good performance in a 2-0 win over Honduras to get to this point.

Mexico will expect to win in front of a large partisan crowd, but nothing El Tri's done in 2013 -- either the main squad or this squad -- should lead anyone to count out T&T.

Match date/time: Saturday, 6:30 p.m. ET

Venue: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia

TV: FOX Soccer (U.S. - English), Univision (U.S. - Spanish), Sportsnet World (Canada), ESPN (U.K.)
