Default Group Matches: CRC vs SRB, GER vs MEX, BRA vs SUI

Looking forward to watch germany mexico game tomorrow.
Also all eyes on Brazil to see if they have what it takes this year to go all the way and not just have passion without defensive skills like in 2014.

Serbia play quite good football and have some good players. Putting a lot of pressure on Costa Rica already.

Opportunities are there for Germany, but they are not taking advantage of it

What a game that was. Mexico needs to finish properly though. They could have easily scored 3-4 goals. Finishing was really bad. But nonetheless it was a very exciting match. I am a fan now

This could have been a bloodbath if Mexico had better finishing. What a game. Dominated the Germans.

Too early to say anything. But I think the big teams are still warming up. Both Brazil and Germany look very potent, despite not winning their first game.

Mexicans jubilant over World Cup win trigger earthquake sensors


Say waht you like about the Mexican teams ability but their fans are one of the best. always. They make their presence felt in US soil all the time everytime they play USA. They deserve a stronger team

After today's match it almost feels like they have lept to a different level leaving usa far behind whereas just not too long ago we used to dominate them pretty frequently.

I think in world football, Australia and USA are pretty similar teams.

No doubt mexico has a long and rich soccer history and earlier always was more dominant than USA who played soccer as after thought. They were not always stronger than USA. Football took an upward movement in USA some time following 94 WC in USA and their performance in each of the world cup just made the game more and more popular. Current non qualification of USA really set them back some years in my opinion.

There was a time period where USA Mexico rivalry intensified mainly in the decade of 2000s. And if you look up you will see USA came ahead mostly and mainly at home. THey also beat Mexico not in most of the qualifiers in the 2000s but in actual wc match in South Korea.

Stats can be misleading.

But yes today's mexico team now is much superior to the current USA team. The way they played yesterday - they almost looked like a top nation. Just jittery rushed finishing but otherwise had hall mark of a top nation. If they can cont to play like that, this year is where they will go the farthest. Their WC record to gone past round of 16 is almost nonexitent (they went to quarter final as a host) similar to USA last few WCs. Will see if they can sustain the intensity. I think they will. It didn't look like a fluke to me. You get a fluke goal not a fluke dominant match.. they exposed Germany yesterday like it's a 3rd rate team.
