Mexico vs. Venezuela live updates, lineups, highlights as El Tri eye Copa América knockout round

June 27th, 2024

Mexico plays its second match of the 2024 Copa América on Wednesday (9 p.m. ET, FS1/Univision) against Venezuela in what’s sure to be a sold-out SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

El Tri opened their tournament run with a bittersweet win over Jamaica on Saturday night at NRG Stadium in Houston. Mexico eked out a 1-0 victory thanks to a Gerardo Arteaga goal in the 69th minute, but lost their Edson Álvarez to injury in his first match wearing the captain’s armband for El Tri. Álvarez confirmed via social media Tuesday that his tournament is over as the West Ham star will focus on rehabilitating his injured leg.

Venezuela faced no such hurdles in its tourney opener against Ecuador. La Vinotinto secured a somewhat surprising 2-1 win after Ecuador captain Enner Valencia was shown a red card for a dangerous play inside the box that found his cleat connect with the face of Philadelphia Union’s Jose Martinez. Down a man, Ecuador surrendered two goals in the second half.

Wednesday’s match won’t necessarily determine which team moves on to the knockout stage, but a win by either side would be a huge advantage heading into the final group stage match. The runner-up of Group B will face the winner of Group A, which will most likely be Argentina. So a win by either Mexico or Venezuela on Wednesday will go a long way toward deciding who avoids the reigning World Cup champions in the quarterfinals.
