Today’s match between the Netherlands and Mexico will showcase two top-tier teams which have shown only a fraction of what die-hard football fans expected to see from them in this year’s World Cup. This live streaming match, now at the point of “win or go home” will likely see all the stops pulled out. Mexico will need to make sure that they do not underestimate the Netherlands team, despite their slow start. Emerging from the group stage, the iconic orange horde which is so familiar to international fans will make the attempt to now put it behind them. Consistently strong, Mexico will not be able to rest on their laurels. A quick score could be deadly, as the Netherlands squad is more than capable of defending a lead nearly indefinitely once secured. Vigilance from the opening kick-off, and not letting the small mental mistakes creep in will be the keys to this match.
