Host Brazil without injured striker Hulk for World Cup match against Mexico

Brazil will be without striker Hulk in the Group A match against Mexico on Tuesday.

Hulk has been sidelined because he did not fully recover from a muscle injury in his left leg. He will be replaced by Ramires.

The rest of the Brazil squad is the same that defeated Croatia 3-1 in the opener in Sao Paulo, with Neymar and Oscar leading the Luiz Felipe Scolari's team.

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera is keeping the same lineup from the 1-0 win over Cameroon in its opening match in the northeastern city of Natal.

Giovani dos Santos will be leading Mexico in its attempt to upset the hosts and move into a good position to advance to the second round.

The winner of Tuesday's match in Fortaleza will be guaranteed a spot in the next round if Cameroon and Croatia draw on Wednesday in the jungle city of Manaus.
