Mexico Vs. Honduras, 2011 Gold Cup (Copa Oro) Semifinals: Lineups

Mexico have made no changes going into their 2011 Gold Cup semifinal match against Honduras, sticking with the same starting XI that has gotten them to this point. 'Chicharito' Javier Hernandez starts up top with Giovani dos Santos behind him, while Andres Guardado and Pablo Barrera fill out the front four in a 4-2-3-1. Honduras still have some doubts over the fitness of their star players, and as a result both Carlo Costly and Wilson Palacios start this match on the bench when many thought they would return to the starting lineup.

Mexico lineup: Talavera; Salcido, Moreno, Marquez, Juarez; Castro, Torrado; Guardado, dos Santos, Barrera; Hernandez

Honduras lineup: Valladares; O. Garcia, Chavez, Bernardez, Sabillon, J. Garcia, Espinoza, Portillo, Thomas, Mejia, Bengston

Expect to see both Palacios and Costly make appearances off the bench for Honduras. If you live in the United States, you can see this game on Univision starting at 10 pm ET.
