Mexico is the only team from the CONCACAF region (North and Central America) that succeeded to qualify to the knockout stage in all of the last 5 tournaments.
The team had some difficulties to qualify, finishing 4th in their group. That forced them to travel all the way to New Zealand for a playoff battle which ended easily to their favor.
The current coach, Miguel Herrera who took the job early this year decided to call only local players to the squad, a difficult decision, considering that many Mexican players play in top European teams.
Mexico's top goal scorer is Jared Borgetti with 46 goals in 89 appearances and the most capped player is Claudio Suárez with 178 appearances.
The upcoming World Cup brings high hopes among the tens of thousands of Mexican funs who will come to Brazil. They believe there is enough power as most of the players in the squad won the 2012 Gold Medal in the Summer Olympic. Add to it top skilled players such as Javier Hernández (Chicharito) from Manchester United and Andrés Guardado from Valencia and Mexico may be on a verge of historical sensation this summer.
