World Cup 2014 Preview: Group A (5)

Football News

Previous World Cup best - Quarter Final 1970, 1986.

Manager - Miguel Herrera

Having coached a number of teams in the Mexican domestic league, Herrera was given the chance to lead his country in 2013. Herrera was originally appointed on an interim basis for Mexico's World Cup play-off games, but was given the job on a permanent basis having sealed their qualification with home and away wins against New Zealand.

Star Player - Javier Hernandez

'Chicharito' will need to put a disappointing season with Manchester United behind him if he is to fire Mexico to success this summer. He definitely has the ability to trouble the best of defences and has a fantastic goalscoring record for his country having found the net 35 times in just 58 games.

One to Watch - Javier Aquino

There are few things more exciting to see than a winger flying past opponents with ease and Javier Aquino has shown he's capable of that having been a regular for Villarreal this season. He may not be a regular goalscorer but he'll provide plenty of ammunition for Hernandez.

Chances - Second Round

Like Croatia, Mexico are unlikely to trouble Brazil for top spot in the group but will expect to make it through in second place. However, with Chile, Holland or Spain waiting in the second round Mexico will be making the short trip home before the quarter final stage.
