[UNDER-20 WORLD CUP] Loser of its first two games, Mexico stayed alive at the Under-20 World Cup as it beat Mali, 4-1, to take third place in Group D. Texan Uvaldo Luna's goal with five minutes remaining moved Mexico ahead of Ghana on goal difference in the third-place placings and it clinched a berth in the final 16 later in the evening when El Salvador -- third in Group C -- fell to Colombia, 3-0.

Greece and Paraguay tied, 1-1, to finish atop Group D, and the Greeks won the drawing of lots to take first place, a great performance for their first time in the U-20 finals.

El Salvador's 3-0 loss knocked it out of the U-20 World Cup, also in its first appearance on the world stage at this level.

    Yes sir, Mexico came back big. I heard they brought in a psychologist to turn mentality around. I bet nobody wants to play this team in next round after that dominant game.

    They had a great game, did what they had to do to go through, difficult path, most likely playing spain or portugal, not the easiest path....

    Yea but if Mexico plays like it did vs Mali they can beat anybody. Mali tied Greece, a Euro finalist. Colombia looks really good and I like their chances.
