Mexico take on the United States on Tuesday after disappointing back-to-back draws against Jamaica and Honduras. Coach Jose Manuel de la Torre has urged his players not to be discouraged by the results, however.
"We must keep working hard on improving everything, technically, tactically, mentally... everything," he said.
The United States beat Costa Rica last Friday, however coach Jurgen Klinsmann is now solely focused on Mexico and said: "We respect them a lot but don't fear them.
"They know they must gain the three points but we must too."
