Post Match Analysis:

Firstly, France implemented a 4-2-3-1 formation, this formation suits the team well. Whereas, France were relatively a depleted side. All the big names Kylian Mbappe, Houssem Aouar, and Eduardo Camavinga were not permitted by their respective clubs to feature in the tournament.

On the other hand, Mexico seemed to know France’s weaknesses and exploit them. During the first half, both the side were relatively very balanced. After that, the Mexicans kicked up a notch and started flooding the French penalty area with quality passes.

Eventually, Alexis Vega scored the first goal of the game. Just after a few minutes, Francisco Cordova scored the second goal to give Mexico a 2-0 lead over France.

France, without many of its biggest stars, did manage to get a goal back after Andre-Pierre Gignac converted from the spot.

In the final ten minutes, Uriel Antuna scored the third goal and his goal was followed by Eduardo Aguirre to wrap up the game for Mexico.

In short, France missed their big stars. Mexico put in a really good shift and exploited the inexperienced French side. Jaime Lozano’s side looks like strong favorites to finish at the top of the group to make it to the knockout stage. Meanwhile, France need to pick up their heads and focus on the next game against South Africa.
