Mexico in the World Cup Finals, World Cup Reports, World Cup Squad.
World Cup Appearances:
France 1998 was Mexico's 11th appearance in the World Cup Finals.
Best World Cup Performance:
Mexico hosted the World Cup twice, and made it to the quarter-finals both times; in 1970 and 1986.
At US 94, they were almost at home,
but only made it to the last 16.
13th June: vs. South
Korea (3:1) in Lyon.
20th June: vs. Belgium
(2-2) in Bordeaux.
25th June: vs. Holland
(2-2) in St. Etienne.
Hernandez and company left it late to qualify from this group and can
thank South Korea for sending a life boat to the Bay of Mexico.
When the Koreans equalized in the 71st minute against Belgium, it was
like a psychological goal for Mexico who then clawed back a two goal deficit to draw with
Holland. For almost an hour they were not in the tournament, let alone the game.
29th June: vs. Germany (1:2) in Montpellier.
The game plan changed in the Second Round, and they actually took the
lead. The aging Germans didn't retire and that was the end of the Blanco hop.
