Who would’ve thought this! Mexico has struggled in major tournaments of late, however after winning their opening game of the Copa America against Uruguay 3-1 they’re looking set for a good run in the tournament this year. Standing in their way in game 2 is Jamaica, who looked a little lost in their match-up against Venezuela. Can they get their act together for this one? Click down for the live stream!
Much of Mexico’s success will be down to Javier Hernandez, who just scores goals for fun. He failed to score against Uruguay, but he certainly looked sharp. And the fact that the goals were shared around the team shows that they’re all pulling in the same direction, something that has been a criticism of Mexican teams in the past.

Jamaica boast Leicester City‘s captain Wes Morgan in their ranks. He’s more than capable of snuffing out any danger that Javier might possess after having a breakout season with The Foxes. But he will need support from his teammates.
Mexico’s new coach Juan Carlos Osorio is beginning to win over his players, especially defender Miguel Layun who has enjoyed working under the recently-appointed boss so far. “We’ve found in him a very intelligent person and we have to extract everything and learn as much as possible because it is clear that he has very, very great knowledge,” Miguel said after their 3-1 in over Uruguay.
The way Mexico are playing at the moment, it’s hard to imagine them losing to Jamaica. But soccer is a funny old game, as they say, and anything’s possible.
