Mexico had a stellar performance in the group stage. Miguel Herrera decided to use the same starting XI in all three games and it paid off.
The last time El Tri won two matches in the first phase was in Korea-Japan 2002, when they defeated Croatia 1-0 and Ecuador 2-1.
That World Cup edition also marked the first time Mexico grabbed more than seven points in the group stage.
The effort of Herrera's side was notorious, especially against the host, as the squad bagged a valuable point.
A couple of victories, over Cameroon and Croatia, sealed the deal. Now El Tri must face Netherlands in the round of 16.
