Pre-game: Mexico vs Uruguay (22 Jun 2010)Match Details
Mexico-Uruguay, Group A, Rustenburg, Tuesday 22 June, 20.30 (local time)

Why Uruguay would win?

This is said to be the best team of Uruguay in football history and they are powered by a determined Diego Forlan who scored two goals against South Africa. Expect this team to play fast, organized and smooth on the field.

Why Mexico would win?

Mexico doesn’t give up on attack and they shown how relentless they are on attacking the defense. This is a young and gun team and is also inspired by veterans like Blanco who was relied upon for free kick goal on the penalty box which he easily converts.

Key Takeaway

France and South Africa are hoping that one of these teams would get beaten badly. If Uruguay and Mexico ends up in a draw then both of them have the biggest chance of entering the next round. Both these teams are going to play tough throughout the game.

Thanks for joining me. Hope to see you again in the next game, LivebloggingMilo.

I am updating this page with a summary of highlights on the first half, and second half. Also, I would post goals scored if any right away including the video here.

For details of happenings, you can get it at FIFA.

Below are the highlights:

Mexico has won their first international win over France and they deserved this win as they were attacking aggressively, challenging plays of Rance and defended very well. Mexico has already assured themselves of a place in the next round.

79′ GOAL SCORED by Mexico via a free kick inside the penalty box, scored by C. Blanco

64′ GOAL SCORED by Mexico from J. Hernandez


The first half is downright boring and given that it is already 3am from my timezone this is painful. Mexico and France just kept on exchanging possessions, going after the ball like they are playing a street game.

What impressed me most from a rather boring game is the determination and flashiness of Giovani dos Santos.
