Team profile

There are a lot of reasons to dream, believes coach Javier Aguirre, and he is not alone. Expectations in Mexico are high that 'El Tri' could produce a historic performance in South Africa this summer. The reasons for optimism are sound. The coach of Mexico's 2002 World Cup side turned to some old heads to rescue a faltering campaign, with Cuauhtemoc Blanco in particular proving an inspired selection.

But it is the country's 'golden generation' of youngsters that has really got fans excited. Andres Guardado, Giovani dos Santos and Carlos Vela are the pick of the bunch. Aguirre's classic blend of youth combined with the experience of Rafael Marquez, Carlos Salcido and Gerardo Torrado is an exciting prospect. Mexico have never managed better than a quarter-final place, but if 'El Tri' can negotiate a tricky-looking Group A, featuring hosts South Africa and past winners France and Uruguay, Aguirre's dream could become a reality.
