Mexico prepared well for this Olympics and the results show that. They still haven't fired all cylinders but if they give gio more time on the field i think that will change. a win in the next game is crucial so they will not meet brasil till final. But Japan looks like a tough team as does Senegal and GB which are likely to be there opponents in qtrs and semi. At the end of the day u have to beat everyone to win. If they keep improving they will have a good chance. Uru in qtrs??
