The first of the adidas sponsored team’s to present their 2014 kit, Mexico the new National Team’s uniform, during their FIFA World Cup Qualifier at the Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, Mexico, where they played Panama.
El Tri kept their World Cup hopes alive with a 2-1 win, sealed by a stunning Raul Jimenez bicycle kick in the 85th minute. They finish their qualifying campaign with a game against Costa Rica on Tuesday needing at least a point to secure fourth place and a place on the plane to Brazil.
