Pre-game: France vs Mexico (17 Jun 2010)Match Details
France-Mexico, Group A, Polokwane, Friday 17 June, 20.30 (local time)

Why Mexico would win?

Mexico didn’t have enough firepower to dispose South Africa and given that Uruguay just scored three goals against South Africa looks dim for Mexico. They should try to be as careful and reserved as they can as they cannot play a shooting match with France. France attacking game could just score two or more goals for the Frenchman.

Mexico is relying on veteran Giovani dos Santos and the youthful skill of Carlos Vela. This team needs to play perfect execution on the field.

Why France would win?

France is France. Gallas and Franck Ribery has the skills, experience and exposure to run plays, ignite counterattacks, calmly setup outside the box and shoot the ball to the goal.

Key Takeaway

Both of these teams have not won their opening games and they would be fighting for a win especially since Uruguay is now on top of the group standings. A loss by either team especially Mexico would make it very difficult making it past the next round. If Mexico loses they are facing Uruguay in a do or die game which looks bleaker than France beating South Africa.
