HANOVER, June 16 (Reuters) Mexico made one change from the team that started against Iran for their Group D clash against Angola today, with the forced introduction of Zinha in place of all-time top scorer Jared Borgetti.

Borgetti misses the game through a hamstring injury and will also miss Mexico's final group game against Portugal.

Angola stuck to the same starting lineup they used in their 1-0 defeat to Portugal, with calls for extra power up front from team captain and lone striker Akwa going unanswered.

The African side retained their defensive formation despite needing to win this game to have any chance of progressing to the knockout phase.
