The La Roja have not been as dominating as Germany in the ongoing tournament, but have been effective enough to pose a serious threat to other top teams and even held the world champions to a 1-1 draw in the group stages.

Mexico will be looking to record their second ever win over European opposition in Confederations Cup history. It is also a match that could see a host of fringe players take the field from both sides as the pressure to win the tournament is off.

"They are very ambitious and yearning to be part of the team".

And midfield dynamo Arturo Vidal stated winning the Confederations Cup would prove they're the best in the world. "We've beaten Argentina in the [Copa] finals twice and we beat Portugal to reach the final". But we've become a team over the last few weeks.
