Miguel Herrera has no real injury concerns ahead of their meeting with the Netherlands, though will be without José Juan Vaźquez who is suspended. Carlos Salcido could come into midfield in his absence.
Javier Hernandez is likely to start from the bench, despite netting in the 3-1 win over Croatia
The North Americans will be hoping Guillermo Ochoa is in inspiring form to deny the free-scoring Dutch.
The 10 goals Netherlands scored in the group stages was the most of every team and they will look to take this form into the last-16 and beyond as they aim to secure World Cup glory.
The Dutch were without Robin van Persie against Chile due to suspension, but will welcome him back here as Louis van Gaal's looks to his talismanic striker to guide the Oranje to the final.
Mexico's defensive gameplan frustrated their opponents and saw them concede just the 1 goal in the opening 3 games, with Guillermo Ochoa and Rafael Marquez both impressing.
They are likely to set up similarly against the Dutch as they aim to thwart their European counterparts, though that will prove easier said than done if Netherlands' performances so far are anything to go by.
The return of Van Persie and the form of Arjen Robben should be enough to see Netherlands book their place in the quarter-finals of the World Cup.
