Mexico: Everything you need to know about the team heading into the World Cup

Mexico are heading towards the World Cup kick off for the 17th time. They have qualified for the previous eight tournaments consecutively.

Furthermore, they have managed to get out of the group stages in all eight campaigns. However, they would go on to get eliminated in the RO16 in each of those tournaments.

This time around they are drawn in group C of the tournament. Which also consist of Poland, Argentina and Saudi Arabia. They are likely to get out of the group once again. However, it is easier said than done.
