Miguel Herrera says Brazil's Group A opponents must overcome their history in the sport and mental attitude if they are to progress in the competition.

Speaking to The Guardian, Herrera said: "From the outset we have to visualise the idea that we can reach the final. The history of our football doesn't back up my words, but we have a good team and a great infrastructure in Mexico; we just lack the mentality to set ourselves those goals.

He added: "It's not that I'm being a conformist, I'd like to be world champion, but you have to have the conviction of achieving an important goal and then advancing. If we get to that [fifth] game, it means we knocked out two important teams in the group stage, as well as a strong team that could be Spain, Holland, Chile … after that, you see who you get in the quarter-final."

Herrera's Mexico face Cameroon in Natal on Friday.
