Since officially booking their place at the World Cup, Gerardo Martino’s side have been inconsistent, winning just two of their last five fixtures. Last time out, the North American outfit held Iraq to four goals thanks to goals from Alexis Vega, Rogelio Funes Mori, Jesus Gallardo and Uriel Antuna.
