Key Battles That Will Shape Mexico's Clash with Netherlands
Hassan Ammar/Associated Press

Mexico could advance to the World Cup quarterfinals on Sunday, but the task will be far from easy. El Tri must defeat Netherlands, one of the top contenders to win the tournament.

El Tri have only played the fifth game of a World Cup when they hosted the tournament in 1970 and 1986. Away from home soil, Mexico have fallen short in the past five editions.

The Oranje are one of the deadliest teams out there. Wesley Sneijder, Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie make up the lethal trifecta of attackers.

The midfield is equally talented, with players of the likes of Nigel de Jong and Jonathan de Guzman.

Mexico will not have a walk in the park, but they can certainly give a run for Netherlands' money.
