The Mexicans posses good technical ability and speed. Boss Miguel Herrera has overseen a mini-revival since his takeover, providing tactical discipline and motivation. They go to Brazil under no pressure, which could play to their favour.
A slow defence and a midfield lacking in physical presence, they could struggle against stronger sides. They struggled in qualifying and the team has had little time to gel under Herrera.
Oribe Peralta. The Santos Laguna forward helped Mexico to Olympic gold in 2012. He looks sharp and has considerably more playing time that Chicharito.
They could be in a battle for second place with Croatia but most likely to fall short. Third in the group seems like a sensible bet.
