The loss to host country Japan cooled things down a bit, but dominant victories over disappointing teams from France and South Africa saw Mexico secure their place for the round of 16 in Tokyo, where South Korea is said to be on the prowl on Saturday. in the morning.

A phenomenal game for the neutrals, Mexico's quarterfinal battle against South Korea saw the net flutter nine times at Yokohama International Stadium, and six of those goals were scored by Lozano's men in an eye-catching spectacle. .

Lee Dong-gyeong's double and Hwang Ui-jo's hit saw South Korea's offensive drive rewarded, but endemic Mexicans knocked out Henry Martin (2), Luis Romo, Sebastián Córdova (2) and Eduardo Aguirre to qualify. to the Olympic semi-finals for only the second time in history.

In contrast, Brazil's quarter-final meeting with the Egyptian under-23 team was a much more low-key affair, as a single goal could separate the two tied teams at the 2002 Saitama Stadium.

The coveted youngsters of Japan or Spain will await the winners of this tie in the game for the gold medal, and Jardine has already warned his players that they expect another low-scoring match of the remainder of the tournament, despite the fans of Mexico for the goals.

In Brazil's match against Mexico in the 2012 Olympics final, a young Hulk found the back of the net at Wembley in the late embers of the match, but Oribe Peralta had already scored a double to propel El Tri to a 2-1 win. and his only Olympic gold medal in soccer to date.
