MEX­ICO

Daily Mail - - World Cup 2018 -

THE BOSS JUAN CAR­LOS OSO­RIO

While study­ing at John Moores Univer­sity in 1997, the Colom­bian lived near Liver­pool’s train­ing ground and would peer over the wall to watch ses­sions.

THE STAR JAVIER HER­NAN­DEZ

He may not have en­joyed the best sea­son at West Ham but Chichar­ito’s pre­ta­dory in­stinct could be cru­cial if Mex­ico are to get out of a tricky group.

THE PROSPECT HIRVING LOZANO

Nick­named Chucky af­ter the doll in the hor­ror films, the PSV winger, 22, will be out to scare de­fences.

KEY STRENGTH

Plenty of ex­pe­ri­ence. Three play­ers — Her­nan­dez, cap­tain An­dres Ad Guardado G dd and df for­mer Tottenham mid­fielder Gio­vani dos San­tos — each have a cen­tury of caps.

BIG­GEST WEAK­NESS

Chok­ing in the knock­out stages. Their last World Cup quar­ter­fi­nal was in 1986 and they were ham­mered 7-0 by Chile at the same stage of the Copa Amer­ica two years ago.
