The all important group match between Mexico and Croatia ended with Mexico advancing to the next round. But the match was never devoid of controversy when in the 64th minute, Mexico were denied a clear chance of getting a rightful penalty.

A shot by Anders Guradado was stopped by Darijo Srna with both his hands but the referee did not award a penalty.

However, Mexico went on to win the match 3-1 and advanced to the Round of 16 where they will meet Netherlands.
