Canada

The Canadians enter October's window at second place in the table with five points following a victory over El Salvador and draws against Honduras and the US last month. But this bout against El Tri at the Azteca marks their biggest test yet in their quest to make history as the first Canada team to qualify for a World Cup since 1986.

Should they pull it off, the significance of a three-point result over Mexico can't be overstated, both in terms of what it would mean for their positioning on the table and the statement it would send that this is truly a golden generation of Canadian talent. Head coach John Herdman's roster was released last Friday, featuring 13 MLS players that will look to help the cause.

Mexico

Sitting atop the Octagonal standings after two wins and a draw during September's three-match window, El Tri now have a pair of home matches against Canada and Honduras before closing out with a road bout against El Salvador.

Head coach Tata Martino's roster includes two key returners that didn't feature during September: Wolves striker Raul Jimenez and Napoli winger Hirving "Chucky" Lozano, who's back healthy after sustaining an injury during this summer's Gold Cup. That can only be seen as a boost for Mexico, who are already perceived as arguably Concacaf's deepest side and will look to maintain their No. 1 spot on the table.

fter having to fight their way back to earn a draw versus Honduras and the US in their first two games in the Octagon, they were miles ahead of El Salvador in their last match, scoring three goals before the game was even an hour old, while not conceding a single shot on target.

In that match, they had to deal with some very physical Salvadorian players in a chippy affair that tested their composure, but in this upcoming match, Canada will deal with a whole other challenge, and that is the heat and hostility that is Mexico City.

To say that Canada have struggled against the Mexicans would be an understatement, scoring only one goal in their last seven visits to Mexico, with their best result being a 0-0 draw in a 2000 friendly.

After three games, they already have five points, which is only one less than their entire total the last time they made the final stage of World Cup qualifying in the 1998 campaign.

The Canucks failed to earn a single point away from home that time around, but they already have one in these qualifiers, drawing the US 1-1.

John Herdman collected his 22nd victory as the Canadian men's national team manager as he has worked his magic with this team, leading them to 10 wins so far this year.
