Aguirre revived El Tricolor's qualifying campaign after the disastrous reign of Sven-Goran Eriksson, but they have never been beyond the second round outside Mexico, and the conditions in South Africa are hardly likely to be conducive to them changing that statistic.

Strange but true
Mexico has hosted two FIFA World Cups: in 1970 and just 16 years later in 1986 when original host nation Colombia withdrew. Miners from Cornwall in England are credited with introducing football to Mexico early last century and 100 years later its domestic league is acknowledged as a regional powerhouse, pulling in massive crowds.
