Canada meet regional powerhouse Mexico at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado on Wednesday night in their second Group A game at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Both teams already look destined to qualify with some comfort from the group stage to take their place in the quarter-finals of the tournament following their opening games, with Canada having a comfortable 4-0 win over Martinique and Mexico handing out a 7-0 beating to Cuba.
This game represents a good opportunity for Canada to measure their progress with a view to the latter stages of the tournament.
