Mexico vs Sweden
Wednesday 27/06/2018 | 15:00 GMT | Ekateringburg Arena
Mexico come into this match brim full of confidence after two wins from their first two games in group F and only require a draw to secure top-spot and progression into the second round of the world cup. Sweden however, will need to better the German result to see them progress any further.
Sweden had stared well with a solid 1-0 win against the South Koreans and almost held on for a draw against the Germans, until of course the last-gasp Toni Kroos winner for the Germans.
Mexico have already proved a lot of the doubters wrong with their hard-fought win against the Germany. While their flair and creativity has always been a part of their game, it’s their defensive discipline and tenacity has made them a contender to reach the latter stages.
The objective in this game for both teams are simple, for Mexico they’ll need to keep things tight and hit Sweden on the break as and when the opportunity arrives, no need to take undue risks. For Sweden, they must assume the German will beat a dejected South Korea team. Sweden will have to play a lot more attacking than are they are used to, and thus take risks they are not usually comfortable in taking. This will play into the strategy of the Mexicans and could therefore capitalize on it.
