Eriksson's honeymoon over in Mexico

While the USA and Costa Rica have clinched berths in next year's Hexagonal, Mexico heads to Edmonton to face Canada with hopes of clinching one of the two berths from Group 2.

The Tri is under pressure after its 1-0 loss at Jamaica on Saturday brought a wave of criticism from the Mexican press.

A win over Canada or a Jamaica tie or loss against Honduras will send Mexico through to the final round of qualifying in the Concacaf zone.

Captain Rafael Marquez is suspended, but Coach Sven-Goran Eriksson welcomes back Andres Guardado, who missed the Jamaica game.
