Mexico continue their 2022 World Cup preparation with a friendly against Colombia at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara on Tuesday night.

Gerardo Martino's men beat Peru 1-0 earlier this month courtesy of a late Hirving Lozano goal and they will be hoping to build on that versus Nestor Lorenzo's troops.

Colombia, meanwhile, head into the friendly off the back of a 4-1 win over Guatemala, with James Rodriguez, Luis Sinisterra, Rafael Santos Borre and Yaser Asprilla finding the net.
