Mexico's Hernandez unlikely to start against Brazil, coach vows to disrupt and attack hosts

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera says he's happy with the lineup that beat Cameroon in the team's Group A opener, indicating that he's unlikely to make room for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez in Tuesday's match against Brazil.

Hernandez came in 74th minute against Cameroon, replacing goal-scorer Oribe Peralta in the 1-0 win.

Herrera described Hernandez as a valuable player on the bench.

The 46-year-old manger, who rescued Mexico's troubled qualification campaign, said his players have been instructed to disrupt Brazil's flowing game in an encounter he said would be "physically demanding."
