In May, Mexican Grammy-winning pop group Jesse & Joy put up an anthem for Mexico's national team. Now, "Corazon de Campeon" has its own video, and it will inspire El Tri and their fans ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

The video portrays some of the country's greatest historical moments. It starts with the Mesoamerican ballgame played near the pyramids, goes all the way through the Mexican Revolution and finishes with some cameos of the footballers at the Estadio Azteca.

It is a nice touch, especially for El Tri aficionados living in the United States, who inspired AT&T and Jesse & Joy to make the song and music video possible.

Mexico is set to host Panama at the Estadio Azteca on October 11, and three days later they will visit Costa Rica.

Both games are crucial, because fifth-place El Tri seek to secure the fourth spot in the general table in order to grab a ticket to the playoff against New Zealand, including a potential chance to qualify for the 2014 World Cup.

El Tri has yet to win on home soil. They have a 1-5-2 record, which is the team's worst participation in a World Cup qualification since 1981.

A little help will not hurt them, and this video is certainly a perfect way to remind the players and fans about all of the pride and joy that football brings to their lives.
