After their shocking opening loss to Saudi Arabia, Argentina is under unpredicted pressure heading into their second World Cup game.
Their 36-match unbeaten streak came to an end as a result, and manager Lionel Scaloni must now decide whether to make substantial changes as a result or to have faith in those players to quickly recover.
Julian Alvarez, who scored in the pre-tournament friendly against the UAE, is also vying for a starting spot. Lisandro Martinez, who came on to replace Cristian Romero at the hour mark in that defeat, may move into defense.
Leandro Paredes, who struggled against Saudi Arabia, may be replaced in the starting lineup by Enzo Fernandez if Scaloni rearranges his squad, while Lionel Messi will be expected to put up a better performance for his nation
Argentina possible starting XI against Mexico
Defenders: L Martinez, Otamendi, Tagliafico, Foyth.
Midfielders: Ocampo, De Paul, Paredes.
Forwards: Di Maria, L Messi, L Martinez.
