While France included veterans such as André-Pierre Gignac and Florian Thauvin (who, in a fun twist, plays club football in Liga MX) in a strong squad, Mexico had to share their talents between the Gold Cup in progress and the Olympics.

Still, the likes of Diego Lainez and Guillermo Ochoa make El Tri a formidable opponent.

Starting XI planned for France: Bernardoni, Michelin, Sagnan, Kalulu, Caci, Toussart, Savanier, Le Fée, Mbuku, Gignac, Thauvin.
