Tireless Mexico can trouble rusty Holland in Freiburg friendly

Holland v Mexico, kick-off 7.00pm

Just days after playing England, Javier Aguirre is set to name a completely different XI to take on Holland in what will be the Mexicans sixth game in a month, with a further two planned before the World Cup begins.

The intensive regime is certainly unique and slightly risky, given that Mexico could face burning out before they even begin their opening match against South Africa.

But they looked sharp against England and this game in Freiburg, Germany, will be tight, with the Dutch not likely to upset the Mexicans with the same direct style that troubled their defence in an undeserved 3-1 loss at Wembley.

Instead, the Dutch will look to keep the ball on the deck and play down the wings, which will also allow Mexico more freedom to play their own game.

Add to that the fact that Holland have drawn three of their last four games, and the 5/2 available on them recording another looks the best bet.
