Mexico slaughters France with 2-0

18/06/2010 at 10:55 1 comment

Last night the Chicharito’s proved to be too strong for Les Bleus. The match between Mexico and France, which was held in Polokwane, ended in a smashing 2-0 for the Mexicans, leaving the French close to tears.

“I remembered my grandfather in the locker room,” Mexico’s Javier Hernandez was quoted by AP after the match.  Last night, he emulated his grandfather by a scoring a World Cup goal against France in 1954. “I haven’t spoken to my family yet, they’re my main motivation. Thank God I could score. More importantly, we could win against a team we hadn’t been able to beat in a long time.”

Cuauhtemoc Blanco scored as well, leaving Mexico victorious.

Mexico plays Uruguay next, which won against Bafana Bafana with 3-0. One of the goals during this game, probably the most controversial ones during the 2010 World Cup, was scored during a penalty after goal keeper Khune received a red card.

France so far has only one point, which means the team has to beat South Africa and gain a better goal difference. This also depends whether or not Mexico and Uruguay  tie their match in Tuesday’s final group games.
