The Mexicans have become one of the discoveries of the Olympic football tournament. And this is despite the fact that all the players of this team play in their homeland.

In the semifinals, the Mexican national team was one step away from the main sensation. In the confrontation with the Brazilians, everything was decided only in the penalty shootout.
