Brazil's Group A opponents Mexico lose out to Bosnia Hercegovina in friendlyJavier Hernandez will lead the line for Mexico this summer
Mexico spluttered to their first international loss since October of last year after losing to fellow World Cup finalists Bosnia-Hercegovina in Chicago on Tuesday evening.
The North American side, who are perennial qualifiers, lost out to tournament debutants Bosnia thanks to a 41st minute goal from Izet Hajrovic, the Galatasaray midfielder.
With Mexico playing a full-strength team, the result will be worrying for national team boss Miguel Herrera, who planned this game as preparation for facing Croatia in Group A of the World Cup, alongside competition hosts Brazil and Cameroon.
Mexico's fine unbeaten run, which actually secured them a late place at the upcoming championships after a poor start to qualifying, began after they lost to Costa Rica over six months ago; they face Portugal on Thursday evening in Massachusetts in a final World Cup dry run.
