Argentina football legend, Diego Maradona, has said he is supporting Mexico, after a review of all of the Latin American teams participating in the 2018 World Cup.
“I am a supporter [of Mexico] already because they made this first round great. Mexico have shown that they could be able to beat Sweden, that they have the condition,” Maradona told Venezuelan TV channel Telesur during his program, “De la Mano del 10.”
El Tri beat Germany 1-0 in their first game, before winning 2-1 against South Korea.
However, they may still need points to secure a place in the round of 16 for a seventh consecutive World Cup.
If Sweden beat Mexico on Wednesday and Germany beat South Korea, three teams would be tied atop Group F with six points, sending it to tiebreakers that start with the best goal differential.
If Mexico and South Korea both win, Mexico would win the group and every other team would be tied with three points.
