Mexico managed to squeeze through a pretty tough group, though they now face their hardest test yet in the first knockout round (12 p.m. ET, ESPN). That's Louis van Gaal's Netherlands, who have perhaps been the most impressive team in the tournament so far, brushing the reigning champions Spain aside before managing to keep the ever-exciting Chile quiet in the group stages. At present, they're one of the favourites to win the entire World Cup.
However, Mexico may well be happy to see that van Gaal has named a pretty experimental-looking lineup for their clash in Fortaleza. Wing-back Paul Verhaegh has surprisingly been handed his competitive debut in place of Daryl Janmaat down the right, while Dirk Kuyt and Georginio Wijnaldum also retain their places. While Mexico certainly wouldn't have anticipated facing such a team, van Gaal has taken a risk in leaving some of his regulars out.
Then again, Mexico are themselves having to deal with a minor switch in the midfield, with the suspension to their deep midfielder José Juan Vázquez meaning coach Miguel Herrera has been forced into changing his starting lineup for the first time at the tournament so far. The experienced Carlos Salcido will come in to protect the back line in his absence.
