The man needs no introduction. Mexico manager Miguel Herrera and his state of mind during the vital points of El Tri's 3-1 win over Croatia:

No penalty?!?!?!

Rafa Marquez gives Mexico the lead...

Andres Guardado doubles it...

Chicharito breaks his slump to cement passage to the final 16...

Mexico's results have improved astronomically since Herrera took charge ahead of the intercontinental playoff against New Zealand. The entertainment factor of Mexico's games most certainly have as well. Next up for El Tri: A date with Group B-winning Netherlands in Fortaleza on June 29.
