Forward Oribe Peralta confident Mexico can frustrate Brazil
Forward Oribe Peralta is confident Mexico can frustrate Brazil in their Group A match on Tuesday.
El Tri come into the tie on the back of a confident 1-0 victory against Cameroon and Peralta believes his side will give Brazil problems, if they play to their strengths.
The FC Zenit forward has a hamstring problem and is a doubt to face Mexico, but Felipão insists he has a contingency plan in place if he does not make it.
“Thanks to the first win, we are very calm about the Brazil match, about taking another step forwards to achieving our goal,” he told FIFA.com. “But the Brazil team is tough, very tough,. We’re going to make life difficult for them, because this game will be crucial. Still, it’s a team that, if we play well, we can beat.”
