It’s one of the biggest games during the World Cup as the home team of Brazil takes on Mexico! Watch the game here.
After both Brazil and Mexico won in their first games in the World Cup, they went head-to-head on June 17 at 3PM ET — and while Brazil is the home team, many aren’t sure they have the advantage after their opener against Croatia. So will they change up the line up?

With Brazil’s forward Hulk injured, many were unsure if he’d be taking the field as striker as usual. That leaves Luis Felipe Scolari with a tough choice to make. However, this is a huge competition for Brazil — after all, Mexico is the team that beat Brazil in the 2012 Olympics. However, Brazil did take the W in a 2-0 shut out at the 2013 Confederations Cup.
Needless to say, the competition is on more than ever.
However, the rivalry goes past the World Cup. “The two countries tend to do well at different points,” Peter Hakim, president emeritus at the Inter-American Dialogue said. “The biggest difference between the two countries is clearly that Mexico is intensively integrated to the United States, both economically and demographically. Brazil has always thought of itself as one of the world’s great, independent countries, that would eventually take its place among the countries that shape the world order…and recently this has meant trying to make South America more important in the Western Hemisphere.”
