Nickname: La Tri or Tricolor

Previous World Cup appearances - 13: 1930, 1950, 1954, 1958, 1962, 1966, 1970, 1978, 1986, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2006

Aguirre has a dilemma deciding who will be the first-choice goalkeeper between his old favourite Oscar Perez, Guillermo Ochoa whose form has dipped recently, and Luis Michel, who has been outstanding lately. He planned to rotate them during the warm-up friendlies.

Players to watch

Cuauhtemoc Blanco, who at the age of 37 can still produce sublime moments of skill, plus the young Dos Santos brothers, Giovani and Jonathan, Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez who are the pick of the new guard in the Mexican side and could help their country to go far.
