Football is followed by everyone in Mexico. It is in our roots. The World Cup is of great meaning. Despite a patchy qualification, expect Mexican fans to be in full voice.

They’re our rivals but.. Argentina
What was the first World Cup you remember watching?
2002 when Jared Borgetti scored one of the best headers in World Cup history. He had his back to the goal but managed to loop it round. Excellent.

The Manchester Derby in 2009! A thrilling game... although I don't need a reminder of how it ended thanks to Michael Owen!
