Espanyol defender Héctor Moreno confident Mexico won’t be overwhelmed by Brazil support
Espanyol defender Héctor Moreno is confident Mexico will not be overwhelmed by the support hosts Brazil will receive at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The 26 year-old, who was part of the Mexico squad that got to the Round of 16 at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, insists El Tri are not going to be intimated by facing the Seleção and hopes they can draw on their experience of having beaten them in the past.
“We’re playing against the hosts, Brazil, who will have thousands of spectators supporting them,” he told FIFA.com. “Are we going to let that overwhelm us? Not at all.
"We’ve beaten them before and we’re confident that we can do it again. You never know what football will throw up, and it’s up to us to deal with whatever comes our way.”
Mexico have been drawn alongside Croatia, Cameroon and Brazil in Group A. They face the hosts on 17 June at the Castelão.
