Mexico and Sweden name unchanged lineups for their final World Cup group match.

Mexico and Sweden have named unchanged lineups for their final World Cup group match.

The Mexicans need only a point to progress to the knockout phase of the competition, but could be eliminated if they lose.

Carlos Vela leads their attack alongside Hirving Lozano, while Edson Alvarez keeps his place in the defence ahead of Hugo Ayala.

For Sweden, and unchanged XI means that Ola Toivonen will start alongside strike-partner Marcus Berg, after finding the net in the 2-1 loss to Germany last time out.

Manchester United defender Victor Lindelof keeps his place in the heart of defence after missing the opening match through illness.

Sweden must better Germany's result against South Korea to stand any chance of making it through the group phase.

Mexico: Ochoa; Alvarez, Salcedo, Moreno, Gallardo; Herrera, Guardado; Layun, Vela, Lozano; Hernandez
Subs: J. Corona, Ayala, Marquez, Gutierrez, J. dos Santos, Fabian, Jimenez, G. dos Santos, Talavera, JM. Corona, Peralta, Aquino

Sweden: Olsen; Lustig, Lindelof, Granqvist, Augustinsson; Claesson, Larsson, Ekdal, Forsberg; Berg, Toivonen
Subs: Guidetti, Johnsson, Svensson, Helander, Hiljemark, Krafth, Jansson, Rohden, Durmaz, Thelin, Nordfeldt
