      Mexico didn't really show up in game one. But playing against the home team in the first game of the WC isn't really a fair show of talent.

      Not too sure if Mexico will advance either. That was a tough tie against South Africa, and now they have to play the two best teams in the group. Though France looked listless against Uruguay, so you never know...

      I think mexico are a week link in group A. Not bad going foward but awful at the back. will be suprised if they progress the group stage.

      Good hub, but i think mexico can keep dreaming.

      Mexico have a decent team and usually always make it through to the knockout rounds though I'm not too sure this time!

      I think the omission of Jonathan Dos Santos has also unsettled the team.
