The latter facet dropped two factors as a consequence of a late Gareth Bale penalty final day trip, and shall be seeking to stage an upset towards the group favourites.
In group C, Argentina and Mexico all the time ship an intense match. Hopefully all of the gamers come out of this tie wholesome and unhurt (I really feel like maybe this match needs to be stamped with violence score by the ESRB).
