The Wales squad could be forgiven for wanting to be on their holidays after a long, tough season but while Chris Coleman’s men are currently over in the United States, they aren’t there for what the locals would call a vacation, they’re playing a friendly match against Mexico.
It could be that bookies believe the Welsh will lack motivation or it could be that the Mexicans are closer to home that means Wales are Stan James’ 11/2 outsiders and it seems likely that despite major improvements in recent months, they’re likely to taste defeat in New York, a result Boylesports quote at 4/7.
With World Cup qualifiers on their agenda, Mexico will field a strong line-up and they’re 11/8 via William Hill to dominate by possessing a lead at the end of each half. Alternatively, Coral price Jose Manuel de la Torre’s side at 13/2 to run out 2-0 winners and Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez can be the man to do the damage; he’s 15/4 (BetVictor) to put his side 1-0 in front.
Javier Hernandez to score first – 15/4 (BetVictor)
