Those who watch the Mexico vs. Bosnis match live online from Soldier Field in Chicago, in preparation for the 2014 World Cup, will be paying close attention to how “El Tri” recovers from the devastating injury suffered by striker Luis Montes against Ecuador last weekend.
Montes suffered from a horrific broken leg when he collided with Ecuador’s Segundo Castillo as they were both fighting for possession during a friendly, also in preparation for next month’s international tournament. Montes, in whom manager Miguel Herrera had placed high hopes, is now out of the World Cup, after having surgery to his leg.

Fans who watch the Mexico vs. Bosnia match live online will be able to see how Herrera and his squad do after the surprising blow and most importantly how the team bounces back. Players were seen in tears following the horrendous events during the Ecuador match.
Mexico has called Javier Aquino to replace Montes, not a man-for-man switch, but Herrera thinks he is the best player for the job at hand. Montes’ injury came at the worst possible time, merely days before the start of the 2014 World Cup on June 12.
For Mexico, Rafa Marquez’s suspected broken toe was not so and he will be available to play in Brazil.
Herrera is expected to start goalie Ochoa in the Mexico vs. Bosnia match, since Corona injured himself against Israel and it appears he won’t be able to come back in time.
As far as Bosnia is concerned, they barely qualified for the World Cup beating out Greece on goal differential and winning eight of their 10-matches. The Europeans surprised by beating Slovakia in their UEFA group.
Watch out for leading scorer Edin Dzeko and captain Zvjezdan Misimovic during the Mexico vs. Bosnia friendly, both are considered to be a threat for any defense. As a whole Bosnia scored 30-goals in qualifiers, only the Netherlands, Germany, and England put the football in the back of the net more times than Bosnia.
Mexico will play in Group A, against the host Brazil, Croatia, and Cameroon, while Bosnia is in Group F and will face Argentina, Iran, and Nigeria.
