Mexico defeated Cameroon 1-0, proving that they should not be taken for granted. Miguel Herrera's 5-3-2 system worked better than ever, and the players showed just how committed they are to the project.
From side to side, El Tri did just what was needed. The footballers understood the coach's plan and kept the ball as much as possible.
Mexico completed 382 passes of a total of 462 (89 percent of effectiveness), recovered 44 balls and had nine times on goal.
Speed, rhythm and patience were three of their most valuable assets, and they took advantage of them constantly.
Now El Tri are set to face Brazil on June 17, and the good news is they have shown they have what it takes to compete.
