After two consecutive victories over Poland and Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mexico will meet another European side, Iceland, who faced two low-level opponents, Indonesia and Qatar, following successful qualifications in which they finished top of the group in front of Croatia and Ukraine. El Tri have also battled their way to Russia without much trouble although they haven’t impressed a lot particularly in their away games against Panama, Honduras, and Costa Rica. Despite the lack of stars within their ranks, Iceland have shown great team spirit and compactness through qualifications and especially during the 2016 UEFA European Championship where they emerged as one of the sensations of the tournament. These sides have already met each other last year in a friendly match that went in Mexico’s favor thanks to Alan Pulido’s goal.
