Don't think the result will mean too much overall - I reckon Portugal will beat Iran and Mexico, while Iran will just do enough to defeat Angola (just because they got a great result today). So Mexico and Iran will be level on points, and Mexico go through on head-to-head record.

The game was terrible. Very disappointed with Mexico, a very poor showing. Congratulations to Angola but, from a neutral perspective that was a game low on quality & I can't see the Mexicans doing much, especially with Argentina or Holland waiting for them in round two.

At least this result makes the last games in this group important. If Iran can do the same tomorrow we will have some exciting battles to look forward to.

Unbelievable result! Apparently, there's a six-figure sum for any Angolan player who scores in the WC finals. They should give it to their keeper, Ricardo. After all, he's ruled out of the goal-scoring contest!

Angola have restricted Mexico to very few chances. I hope they can hold out for a draw but that's going to be tricky now they're down to 10 men.

I really hope Angola can score, if not score I would like to see them draw.

Disappointing stuff from Mexico. Marquez looks like the only player capable of turning the game around. Angola are doing ok, but like most of the African teams at the WC, they look short of ideas when it comes to scoring.

So far so good for the underdog here Angola. I think this first half has been a surprise to Mexico. If Angola could organise their strikers better I think we will see them score in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

I think Mexico are a pretty good side and could surprise some teams. They should beat Angola, but they should really be up against it with Portugal. I really think that they are better than they are getting credit for having come from a weak qualifying region.

A draw wouldn't be bad for Angola. I'm sure they fancy their chances against Iran and Portugal could beat Mexico in the final game. Maybe they're scared?

Angola are playing a 4-5-1 system and are not moving their players forward, are they playing for a draw already?

2014: Cold War Kid
I was impressed by the Mexicans in their first game. Iran are not that great but not as bad as the score suggested. This will be a tougher game for them.

This is one of the low-key games of the tournament. I hope Angola wins this game to open up the group a little. If Mexico wins this one, rest of the group matches would be quite meaningless.

I'm afraid this is probably going to be the most boring game of the first round in this group, maybe even the whole World Cup!

1932: Guy_Kewney
Come on Angola, we need at least one African side in the knock out stages, otherwise it'll be boring for the tournament.
