Mexico Follow Brazil to Beach Soccer World Cup Quarters

Mexico will join Brazil in the last eight of the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup after their victory over the Solomon Islands yesterday.

Mexico went into the game knowing that a win would be enough to reach the next stage after Brazil had defeated Russia earlier in the day on penalties, following a 2-2 draw after extra time.

Despite the Solomon Islands opening the scoring in the early stages of the match, Mexico were determined to get the victory and poured forward in search of goals. And goals they did get. Double strikes from Gustavo Rosales and Morgan Plata, along with single goals from Ricardo Villalobos and Alejandro Pozos were enough to overcome the Solomon Islands and record a 6-3 victory.

The quarter finals now await for both Brazil and Mexico. Brazil will face Portugal, with the Mexicans going up against Spain. Both games are to be played on Thursday.

Today, Argentina face France at 9:30am local time, with Uruguay playing Japan at 14:00. Both sides need victories to stand any chance of qualifying for the quarter finals.
