What a game this one has been so far!

One of the best tactical displays I've seen in a long time. But before that, the non-football stuff.

Playing with temps around 40ºC, in a closed stadium, with over 72 000 people inside... not even the entire supply of ACs in the world can avoid a sweaty inferno. That stadium surely is a engineering and technical wonder, but it simply isn't enough.

Before the game, the national anthems. And when it cam to Uruguay's turn, they played... Chile's. Unbelievable, ridiculous, unprofessional, you name it. The players somehow managed to not break their formation and stand through it (I know I wouldn't), but Muslera and Suarez did not look happy.

Then the match starts. Great atmosphere, and there's already a goal! Guardado crosses it beautifully from the left, Herrera pressures Álvaro Pereira and the left back scores an own goal. From then on it would only worse for the man...

Javier Akino. Don't forget this name. If we (Porto) had this guy in our team this season we would have been champions. He completely destroyed every single opponent standing before him, which more often than not was A. Pereira. A real talent: fast, technical, intelligent, with great tactical awareness and vision. Also, most importantly, drive. And that's the word to define this first 45 minutes.

Mexico nullified Uruguay like I've rarely seen in football. By the 15th minute possession was 73-27. They kept the ball, and Uruguay didn't pressure. It was getting slower paced by the minute. But then Uruguay/Cavani woke up a bit, and that's when Mexico really shone. Playing in a defensively-fluid 3-5-2, Herrera joined Chicha upfront (who's been missing so far), pressuring conservatively the two deeper midfielders in Uruguay's lineup. Akino and Corona/Guardado did the same with the full backs, often leaving the right one free to receive the ball (better than giving them no options is giving them just one you can control). If he did, they came from a few meters back and force a 2-1 on him.

The end result? Godin and JMG are left with dozens of meters of space, but the have no option, at all. There isn't a single passing line. They either attempt the long pass (which hasn't worked so far), or they take advantage of the rare occasions Mexico's midfield missed a spot and dribble their way forward (worked once, Talavera saved fearlessly).

Mexico stuck to their possession based attacks, but whenever they lost the ball it was a battle for their lives. They'd pressure like mad every player in a 20 meter radius from the ball. When Uruguay thought of a pass, it would work. When they attempted it, there was already a white shirt on the way. The same with 1vs1: Mexico always arrived earlier. 4 yellows and a red card because of this.

I have to sleep now, but this is a game you should try to re-watch. Great stuff.

How so?

Apparently the second half was even better than the first.

Seems like Mexico decided to make me (and themselves) look like a fool.

Full match here, I haven't watched it yet but I will. Playwire can be a bit of a bitch though.
