[BRAZIL 2014]Mexico plays Croatia Monday with a berth in the second round on the line for a winner. In case of a tie, El Tri will go through. It hasn't given up a goal in its first two games, but Croatia coach Niko Kovac doesn't believe that will last long, saying ''if anyone's knees should be trembling,'' it should be those of the El Tri.
Responded Mexico coach Miguel Herrera, "Mexico has played a World Cup in which we've proven we have an attitude of determination. It is a robust team. It is a team that has not conceded goals. It is a team that is doing things right."
Guillermo Ochoa, who stopped Brazil with several world-class saves in their 0-0, will lead an unchanged squad.
Croatia lost to Brazil, 3-1, but recovered to blast Cameroon, 4-0.
