Mexico are optimistic Raul Jimenez will be fit for their World Cup opener against Poland.

The Wolves striker played 45 minutes in the pre-season friendly against Sweden as he continues his comeback from a groin injury.

Henry Martin is ready and waiting to start up front if Jimenez is not fully fit with Alexis Vega and Hirving Lozano completing the attack.

Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona has been ruled out of the World Cup due to injury.

Poland head to Qatar without Adam Buksa as the Lens striker prepares for surgery.

Robert Lewandowski will likely lead their attack in a 3-4-3 formation alongside Arkadiusz Milik. Aston Villa’s Jan Bednarek is expected to start, but Matty Cash is unsure of his place in the squad.

Predicted Mexico XI:

Ochoa; Sanchez, Montes, Moreno, Gallardo; Alvarez, Herrera, Guardado; Lozano, Martin, Vega.

Predicted Poland XI:

 Szczesny; Bendarek, Glik, Kiwior; Frankowski, Krychowiak, Zielinski, Szymanski, Zalewski; Milik, Lewandowski.
