Mexico screamer takes them within touching distance of World Cup knockouts

A breath-taking freekick by Mexico's Luis Chavez has put them just two goals away from the World Cup knockout stages.

The 26 year old's strike soared into the Saudian Arabian net just five minutes after Mexico had hit the front thanks to striker Henry Martin.


As it stands, the goals won't be enough to take the South American side through to the last 16 of the competition, as Argentina currently lead Poland 2-0 and the latter's disciplinary record is the strongest in the group.

But should they get one more in the next five minutes or so, Group C could be in for a grandstand finish at Qatar.
