The big game is here, as Mexico will play in the 2018 FIFA World Cup Round of 16, where they’ll face Brazil in Samara. Expect Los Angeles Football Club forward Carlos Vela to be in the starting lineup once more in the big game for El Tri.
Not to put too much pressure on this, but this is the moment El Tri have been waiting for, reaching the knockout round once again, but now they’re looking to advance and reach the quarterfinals. In their way is Neymar and Brazil, a talented team but a team that, dare I say it, isn’t invincible. That, plus Mexico’s recent track record against Brazil, which has been pretty good, has to give El Tri confidence.
On the other hand, Mexico laid an egg in their final group stage game against Sweden, and that has to be concerning. If they play like that, the dream of the fifth game at the World Cup will die a quick death. But if they play like they did against Germany, they can do this. Which version of Mexico will emerge? Make that pot of coffee to find out.
