The 5th Round is Mexico’s World Cup Goal

Most countries are preoccupied with qualifying for the World Cup, and a select few are possessed with the idea of winning it -Mexico, on the other hand, falls somewhere in the middle of these two extremes. Mario Aguirre is a journalist from Mexico living in Argentina, and described the different outlook the two countries have.

 

Aguirre stated that the Argentinian press were always confident that their team would win, and the people on the street shared their opinion. This kind of outward confidence is understandable when you have Sergio Aguero and Lionel Messi on your team, of course, but Mexico does not only not have players of this calibre, but do not enjoy an easy road on their journey to the World Cup quarterfinals.

 

Tough Competition Ahead of Them

 

In order to reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup and escape the Round-of-16 suffering that they have called home since 1994, Mexico will need to outperform Germany, South Korea, Sweden, and, most likely, Brazil in the first knockout round.

 

Two Views on Mexico’s Fate

 

As far as the online betting NZ and the rest of the world will be offering for the World Cup, there are two views as to how the Mexicans will perform:

 

  1. Manuel Medina, a Mexican journalist residing in Russia, intends to follow Mexico for the first four games. He stated that, looking at the likelihood of them winning from a journalistic rather than fan perspective, and being neither optimistic or pessimistic, there was a clear chance of triumph in the first four games. He stated that he did not feel that his home country’s team would manage to beat Brazil, however.
  2. Mexican players are far more enthusiastic, and hopeful, in their predictions for the team. PSV attacker Hirving Lozano has stated that he feels that the team has an excellent chance of winning the World Cup thanks to the massive work the players have been putting in.

 

Although Mexico remains an outsider in terms of a likelihood to win the World Cup, with the average betting service putting the odds at between 66:1 and 132:1, the measure of their success will lie in managing to make it to the quarterfinals.

 

Osorio Will Be Moving On

 

The manager for the Mexican football team, Juan Carlos Osorio, is almost definitely going to be leaving his post after the tournament comes to an end. Even though the Columbian has won over many critics for the excellent work he has put in to the team so far, he will obviously enjoy a larger range of choice in terms of the calibre of the national teams and clubs looking to make use of his services if he is able to take the Confederation of North, Central, American, and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF, giants to the first quarterfinal game they have enjoyed since 1986!

 

Mexico will be playing Germany on the 17th of June, South Korea on the 23rd, and Sweden on the 27th.
