MEXICO FOOTBALL HISTORY

The Mexico national football team (Spanish: Selección de fútbol de México) represents Mexico in association football and is governed by the Mexican Federation of Association Football (FMF), the governing body for football in Mexico. Mexico's home stadium is the Estadio Azteca and their head coach is Miguel Herrera. The team is currently ranked 19th in the FIFA World Rankings and 19th in the World Football Elo Ratings. Mexico is one of only seven nations to have won at least two out of the three most prestigious football tournaments (FIFA World Cup, FIFA Confederations Cup, Summer Olympics) by winning the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup and the Gold Medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

Mexico has qualified for fourteen World Cups and has qualified consecutively since 1994, making it one of only six countries to do so. The Mexican national team along with Brazil and Germany are the only three nations to make it out of the group stage over the last five World Cups. Mexico played France in the very first match of the first World Cup on 13 July 1930. Mexico's best progression was reaching the quarter-finals in both the 1970 and 1986 FIFA World Cups, both of which were staged on Mexican soil.Football in Mexico was first organized in the early 20th century by European immigrant groups, notably miners from Cornwall, England, and in later years Spanish exiles fleeing the Spanish Civil War. Their very first match was played against Guatemala, which the Mexican team won 3–2.

A series of international friendlies were played against the national representation of Guatemala on December 9, 12, and 16 of 1923. The match on December 9 was played in Parque España and was won by Mexico with a final score of 2–1. On December 12, the match ended in a 2–0 win for Mexico, and the final game of the series ended in a 3–3 draw. The manager for this team was Rafael Garza Gutiérrez, and the assistant coach was Adolfo Frías. The fourteen players selected for this friendly series include: Nacho de la Garza, Pedro "Perico" Legorreta, Manuel "Güero" Yáñez, Enrique "La Matona" Esquivel, Agustín Ojeda, Roberto Jardón, Carlos Garcés, Horacio Ortiz, Adeodato López, Mauro Guadarrama "La Venada" Alatorre, Cornelio Cuevas, and Alfredo García Besné.
