Bad news for the Mexican team. After having debuted in the Tokyo Olympics with the right foot when they beat their counterpart in France 4-1, for the second game they fell dramatically 2-1 to Japan. This marker has put the team led by coach Jaime Lozano on the ropes, who could be out of the competition if they do not play a good game against South Africa.

Things have gotten complicated for him Tricolor olympic, so now they must win by any means next Wednesday against South Africa. A tie would put them out of the competition. Also, the situation is not as simple as it seems, and it is that they wait for France and Japan not to win their match. The advantage is that Mexico has a goal difference of more than two, with 5 goals in favor and 3 against.
With the victory in the early hours of this Sunday, Japan it reached 6 points, although it could still be out of the competition. If they draw against France, they will be in the next round, however, if Mexico wins and the Gauls beat them by a difference of two goals, they would be saying goodbye to the competition.
On the other hand, the France André-Pierre Gignac knows that there is still nothing written, and not only is it enough for them to beat Japan, but they have to work hard to triumph by difference of 2 goals, thus forgetting what happens in the Tricolor game and South Africa. A victory with a single goal leaves them eliminated.
As for the African team, they still have a chance to advance to the next round. To do this, they need to beat the Aztec team by at least two goals and wait for Japan to beat France by any score, only in this way could they advance to the quarterfinals.
This is how the national team is not yet out and now they hope to beat South Africa. With a victory they would be almost tying their place for the next phase of the contest. A draw or a loss would cause them to pack their bags earlier than planned. Next Wednesday at 06:30, everything will be defined.
