A French team in disarray will face a Mexico lineup which is growing in confidence in a Group A match on Thursday that could be crucial in determining who progresses in the World Cup.

Mexico scored a late equalizer in the tournament's first match against South Africa, taking some of the gloss of the opening day celebrations for the host nation. France opened later last Friday with a lackluster scoreless draw against Uruguay that didn't encourage anybody except their group rivals.

France defender Eric Abidal says "things will become even harder if we have a bad result" because the French then have to take on South Africa in their last group game.
