WC 2018: Mexico to trouble Germany

14 Jun 2018, 10:00

Former Mexico goalkeeper Oswaldo Sanchez believes his nation's speed can trouble Germany in their World Cup opener on Sunday.

Juan Carlos Osorio's men were handed a tough draw in Russia, including taking on the defending world champions, who won all 10 of their qualifiers.

Sanchez, who made 99 appearances for Mexico, said the team knows they have a challenge on their hands, but if they play their game, they could push Germany.

"There's no question that Germany is much bigger and taller than the Mexican squad, but this is not basketball, it's soccer, so the way to challenge them is to move quickly and play the ball really well," Sanchez told Omnisport in association with Powerade, the official sports drink of the World Cup and the Mexican team.

"Focus on speed, speed is what kills [strength] and height, so Mexico will have that going for them."

Germany is a well-oiled machine that enters the tournament in Russia as one of the hot favorites, with Mexico to face South Korea and Sweden after their Group F opener.
