Many people say this, but I actually don't believe thats true at all. Mexico can not play for a draw in my mind, cause they would face Argentina in the round of the last 16. They have to win this match to avoid them. If they do, they would get "only" South Korea or possibly Creece.

I believe they will come out and try to win this game. But if it's still a draw after the 60-70min, then yes I would say they are happy with that.

I don't see Uruguay as a problem for Mexico at all. Especially if they play them like they did today. Uruguay's defense is nothing like France and the defense France was showing was pretty impressive against a pretty relentless offensive from Mexico.

You are also very right about them having to beat Uruguay to avoid Argentina which would be a REALLY smart move.
