Mexico 1, Netherlands 2: The Worst Kind Of Heartbreak

Mexico has an excellent group stage after collecting 7 points. What came next was a monumental match up with the Netherlands in the round of 16.

If Mexico had won the match, history could have been made as they would have played either Costa Rica or Greece, two good teams, but not quite the potency of Netherlands.

If was a give and take first half, but Mexico seemed to be able to shake the Netherlands defense and keeper. Yet, 0-0 remained, and Mexico seemed to be poised.

In the 48th minute, Giovani dos Santos got the ball outside the box and shot a missile which gave El Tri the 1-0 lead.

Mexico seemed to die down in possession from that point, and Netherlands attacked with all their power.

Corner after Corner became the norm, and in the 88th minute, Sneijder scored off a deflection on a corner.

But…it was in the 90th minute, Márquez was called for a weak penalty against Robben.

Huntelaar would convert, and Mexico was eliminated from the 2014 World Cup.

Here at TriReport, we would like to say thank you for choosing us to give you up-to-date news/updates, it was a pleasure.

Como Siempre…

Vamos México!
