Many Mexicans for Mexico
Mexico impressed me in the World Cup qualification, in a negative way. I never saw the Mexican national team struggling like this to qualify. They drew the most of their games and lost some while they won only two in the last 10 before the play-offs. Lot of experience for Mexico in the defense with Marquez (120/15) and Rodriguez (93/1) and in the midfield with Guardado (102/14) while Salcido (120/10) should always start from the bench. Many players who have been called up come from Mexican league teams (America, Leon, Cruz Azul).
Not only Cameroon are trained by a German trainer, Volker Finke: in Germany at Borussia Park the Indomable Lions played a good match against Germany (2-2). Eto'o gave Cameroon the lead, German scored two and Choupo-Moting scored the equalizer. Before accepting to fly to Brazil Eto'o and his team mates decided not to give up their fight for the prizes as their football federation had not been clear on this subject. At the end the two parts found a solution and the players arrived in Brazil.
If I had to bet on which name is more important between the two, I would have to chose Mexico. If I think of the Group A table (Brazil already with 3 points, 3/1, Croatia 0 1/3) then I would have to select the draw. But my instinct says Cameroon. A team I always liked to follow in the past and a team that can always conquer new fans through their "being indomitable". I follow my instinct based above all on what I saw in some matches of these two teams in the last two years and I bet on Cameroon DNB (AH).
