Brazil vs. Mexico, 2014 World Cup: Lineups

Adam Pretty

Brazil and Mexico will both look to build on successful but slightly nervy starts as the second round of Group Stage games begin.

SB Nation's 2014 World Cup Bracket'

Brazil hand a start to Ramires ahead of Hulk for their second match of the 2014 World Cup

The move looks like a move to a 4-3-3 formation, with Neymar and Oscar supporting Fred up front, and a very tough-looking midfield of Luiz Gustavo and Paulinho being joined by Ramires.

Mexico's lineup, meanwhile is completely unchanged, with Oribe Peralta continuing to lead the line ahead of Javier Hernandez after his goal in the game against Cameroon guided his side to a victory. With the Group still open, things will be a lot clearer if either side can win this game, but the hosts will be favourites and expected by their waiting fans to secure another victory.

Brazil (4-3-3): Julio Cesar; Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo; Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Ramires; Oscar, Neymar; Fred.

Mexico (3-5-2): Guillermo Ochoa; Francisco Rodriguez, Hector Moreno, Rafael Marquez; Paul Aguilar, Hector Herrera, Jose Vazquez, Andres Guardado, Miguel Layun; Giovani dos Santos, Oribe Peralta.
