    MX U23 vs JP U23 Dream11 Prediction

    Japan and Mexico face off in the bronze medal match after both suffered heartbreak in the semi-finals, Japan losing to a goal five minutes from the end of extra time, whilst Mexico were defeated in a penalty shootout following a tense 0-0 draw. After securing a 100% record in the group stage, Japan have since failed to score in both of their knockout fixtures and may well deploy a more attacking playstyle here. Mexico meanwhile, have accrued 14 goals across the tournament so far despite drawing a blank vs Brazil and will be expected to rediscover their scoring touch here.

    Date: 6 August, Friday
