The Mexican team that competes in the U17 World Cup, advanced to the round of 16 after qualifying as second in its group after its last match in sector F where the German team took first position.
Mexico won its last match 4-0 against the representation of New Zealand and although they tied on points with their counterpart from Venezuela, four for each, Germany put a 3-0 over the South American representation that allowed a better goal difference for the Tricolor.
Mexico's last game in the group stage began forty-five minutes late due to a thunderstorm that prevented the kickoff at the scheduled time.
Although the national team dominated the first half, it took until the 41st minute to open the scoring with the score of Fidel Barajas, who after an assist from Luis Navarrete, launched a shot from outside the area that Matt Foord could not save.
In the second half, the Tri Sub 17 festival arrived, which in the first minute of the restart extended its lead with a goal from Adrián Fernández de Lara, which was followed by two more from Stephane Carrillo, the second of which was a penalty.
