Waiting game for Mexico
Tournament revelations Mexico will hope to keep up the good work against the soon-to-be departing Solomon Islands in the final game in Group A. Provided that the result in the day's other game goes their way, a win will see them through to the quarter-finals of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Rio de Janeiro 2007.
The Aztecas have proved to be one of the sensations of the competition, downing Russia and running Brazil mighty close. Defeat to the holders has left them on the brink of elimination, however. If the Europeans defeat the hosts in day five's second game, Mexico will be out before they even take to the sand against Solomon Islands in the final encounter of day.
The islanders will be heading home no matter the result and the fact they have nothing to lose could make them dangerous opponents, particularly with star man James Naka back in action.
Naka has served his one-match suspension and will return for the Oceanic outfit. The Mexicans will be at full strength.
Tuesday's will be the very first meeting between OFC and CONCACAF teams in the history of the tournament.
All I'm going to ask of my players is that they play with the same attitude they showed against Brazil. If they can do that, then we've got a good chance of winning - Ramon Raya, Mexico coach.
