Group A. Mexico vs. Croatia (I assumed Brazil was going to win vs. Cameroon)
Winner: Mexico, 3-1
What Was At Stake: Assuming Brazil wins (which they did), winner moves on to face the Netherlands in the round of 16; loser is eliminated.
The Better Team Was... Mexico. They could have played for the draw, but they went on the attack, outplaying the Croatians and forcing them to scramble.
Man of the Match: Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, who was subbed on in the 62nd minute, but seemed to change the entire dynamic of the game. However, credit also goes to the Mexican defenders, who completely shut down Mario Mandzukic.
I love watching Mexico's coach Miguel Herrera after a goal. The guy goes absolutely crazy.
