On Saturday, Mexico will play Nigeria in an international friendly match at the Memorial Coliseum’s United Airlines Field.
Mexico is coming off a 3-0 win over Thomas Christiansen’s Panama in their previous match. Mexico won thanks to goals from Real Betis winger Diego Lainez, Monterrey centre-back Cesar Montes, and America striker Henry Martin.
Last month, Nigeria and Toni Conceicao’s Cameroon played to a 0-0 draw. Despite the presence of players like as Kelechi Iheanacho, Alex Iwobi, and Ahmed Musa in the starting lineup, Nigeria was unable to break through the Cameroon defense.
Nigeria vs. Mexico Head-to-Head
Mexico has won two and drawn three of the five head-to-head meetings between the two teams.
Predicted XI for Nigeria (4-3-3): John Noble, Enyinnaya Kazie, Olisa Ndah, Adekunle Adeleke, Tebo Franklin Degaulle, Anthony Shimaga, Samuel Nnoshiri, Seth Mayi, Ibrahim Olawoyin, Sunday Adetunji, Anayo Iwuala
Nigeria vs. Mexico Prediction
For the Gold Cup, Mexico has picked a formidable roster. Hirving Lozano of Napoli had a terrific season in Serie A, and Ajax midfielder Edson Alvarez of Ajax and Porto winger Jesus Corona of Porto might also be important.
Nigeria, on the other hand, has a team that is inexperienced. This game will provide young players with an opportunity to represent their country, and this experience might be invaluable.
Mexico should be able to triumph in this match.
Mexico 3-0 Nigeria is my prediction.
