Mexico Tops France In World Cup! Argentina, Greece Also Win

Sports

Thursday, June 17:  Watch out South Africa, here comes Mexico!  El Tri toppled the 1998 World Cup Champs, France, 2-0 today in Polokwane, South Africa for a crucial win in the group stage of the World Cup.  Mexico now has 4 points in Group A, tied with Uruguay for the Group A lead.  Uruguay defeated the host country, South Africa, 3-0 yesterday.  On Tuesday, June 22 at 8:00am MDT, Mexico will face Uruguay at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in South Africa.  Javier Hernandez came on as a subsititute in the 2nd half and scored on what was originally thought to have been offsides.  The sideline referee kept his flag down, and Hernandez put a great move on the goalie to score easily.  37-year old Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored on a penalty kick for the 2-0 victory. 

Hernandez, nicknamed "Chicharito (Little Green Pea)," ran onto Rafael Marquez's pass as the France defense stopped, believing Hernandez was offside. He dribbled around goalkeeper Hugo Lloris before guiding the ball home in the 64th minute.  Cuauhtémoc Blanco is the third-oldest player to score in a World Cup at 37 years, 151 days. Blanco has scored three World Cup goals, with two coming from the penalty spot, and is the only Mexican player to score in three World Cups.

In other action, Argentina got their biggest victory under Head Coach Diego Maradona, defeating South Korea 4-1.  Gonzalo Higuain scored a hat trick for Argentina, while even though Lionel Messi was held scoreless, he was dominant in player possession and guiding the attack.  Argentina now has six points after two victories in the group stage. 

Also in Group B, Greece defeated Nigeria for their first World Cup victory in team history.  Greece defeated a ten-men Nigeria squad, 2-1.  To advance to the second round, the Greeks almost certainly must get at least a draw with powerful Argentina on Tuesday; the Argentines routed South Korea 4-1 Thursday and the Koreans took Greece 2-0 earlier in the tournament. A difficult assignment for sure.
