Mexico: It's hard to be disappointed with a 5-1 win, but letting Bermuda score a goal is something that will drive Tata Martino crazy. It's also perhaps a sign that the defense really needs some work. In the past several months they've conceded four to Argentina and two to Martinique, and part of the problem has been an inability to close attackers down properly. Here's a chance to find some stability at the back, because the talent is there.
Panama: The shocking loss to Bermuda puts this team in a tough spot where it is going to probably need to take four points from Mexico in two games to have any shot at winning the group. Panama is always the underdog against El Tri, and the pace of the Mexicans will be difficult for this aging defense to deal with.
