Mexico after progressing incredibly well in the last few years according to the manager Jose Manuel de la Torre, who is extremely confident that the team can do well at the 2014 FIFA World Cup if they qualify for the tournament.

As a result of the victory in the 2011 CONCACAF gold cup, the team will now be taking part in the 2013 Confederations cup. They are also in the final round of qualifying for the World Cup and are the favourites to reach the competition from this region. The manager has also praised the desire within the striker Javier Hernandez to take the national team to even greater heights.

The Manchester United striker is one of the key members of the squad. He has been instrumental in helping the team win the last four matches on the bounce. The manager has said that it is extremely important for Mexico to be involved in the Confederations cup because it helps them adjust to the surroundings and getting to know the competition. He has said that the teams coming into this tournament will be of the highest calibre, and Mexico need to be at their best in order to win it. De la Torre has also said that this tournament will also help improve the logistics of the team.

"It’s very important for us to be involved in a competition of this calibre. This is a very strong tournament featuring the champions of all the confederations, which will help us find out where we’re at in footballing terms. Of course it’s going to be very tough, but we’ve got pretty high expectations. Mexico have been growing stronger for some time now and we need to prove that at major tournaments and with the senior national side," said the Mexican manager to FIFA.
