    Mexico did well holding possession and pressing higher up the field, a bit of issues but they got the job done. Now the real test for Osorio is to see what he does when his team goes 1-0 or 2-0 down vs a Brazil or France. Osorio clearly has got his players to understand how to play different styles and do it successfully, but not every team is gonna make mistakes like Germany and not do anything about them and not every team is as technically weak as South Korea.

    Brazil should be the one trying to avoid Mexico, Brazil has been playing like crap and Mexico has a history of playing amazing against Germany. Remember the olympics final? Remember 2014 WC? And all the friendlies Mexico has beaten Brazil? Hosnestly Mexico would be better off facing Brazil in the round of 16

    Both of you would rather suck a EEUU producer butthole than give objective reporting a chance. I don't blame you, but I doubt that you would even have a chance to deny it. I mean, you need youtube likes and subs, but really, you suck off the talents of the men that you throw up in your mouth over. You two are two who look like something that EEUU dreamt up to apologize for Mexican greatness. You guys talk about how other people are good or not good; meaning that unless you have led a European or world cup team to victory, then stop talking. And you all need to stop talking.

    I don't know about Mexico's team because you introduced me to them, but because you can't keep your mouth shut while they play. Shut up.

    Best scenario would be S.Korea win against Mexico, Germany beats Sweden and with all teams 1 /0/ 1 Germany beats Korea, and Mexico beats Sweden making Mexico the 1st seed and Germany facing Brazil in the second round in a rematch of that 7:1 finals.

    Don't sleep on Switzerland if they meet El Tri in the round of 16. They are a very organized and tactical team and have made comebacks so far in this tournament. Brazil go 1-0, the Swizz make it 1-1 in the end. Serbia goes 1-0 up, Switzerland end up winning 2-1. They aren't a bad team actually, they don't get a lot of attention cause no one hypes them up a lot.

  • Eddie
    Eddie 11 months ago +6

    This should be the starting line up vs S. Korea
    M. Fabian
    Lozano Tecatito
    Guardado J. Dos Santos Herrera
    Gallardo Moreno Ayala Salcedo
    Depending on how the game goes
    Sub Marco for Gio
    Sub Vela for Peralta or Raul or Chicha
    Sub Tecatito for Layun
    Or decide to park the bus and bring in Edson Alvarez. Mexico has so many variables. Just my 2 cents

    • Black Heart
      Black Heart 11 months ago

      Save vela and use it for sub if we are losing, guardado in the middle sub with dos santos and Aquino in the left, that’s a better line up and 11 players. Chicharito is still lost and should be used only for sub that’s what he’s good for.

    • Jonathan Appleseed

      1. That's 12 players
      2. Jona doesn't suck he's one of the best midfielders( gio sucks)
      3. No way in hell Vela will ever play in that position having Raul Peralta and chicha lol
      Arsenal. Mexico isn't parking the bus against south Korea. Are you kidding??

    Fuck bro I need Mexico to not choke. I swear to god if chicharito's flopping ass plays there should be a riot. The only reason he's there is because he makes the team money. Jimenez and oribe 10x better. Also our dumbass coach did the same shit against I think New Zealand in the confederations cup where he took out like his 6 best players and we lost the first half. Then second half he put in our best player and then obviously we won but it shouldnt have to be like that. Its just so annoying. Play your best players!!!!! SIMPLE.

      Tyrant Jesus yea but he choked against neur the first half then second half on a 2v1 fast break he choked and gave vela a terrible pass then on a 1v1 with him and neur he flopped and tried to get a penalty even though he was wide open. Then for the last 30 minutes he was just standing around pointing while the rest of his teamates were running around like crazy. We were essentially playing with 10 men the last 30 minutes. The thing I hate the most is he doesnt even attempt to score. He just chokes and does something retarded. Its so annoying. Oribe or Jimenez would never do that.

      Erick Saldana Focusing on games from the past is a mistake mate, you should look to the current Brazil squad who has been rejuvenated, with more deadly players. I know they haven't been playing the best football possible, like they did on the friendly matches. Nevertheless, one shouldn't be fooled about that.
