Marquez admits Mexico must beat France

Uruguay managed to beat South Africa 3-0 on Wednesday, so Mexico and France could face a battle for the second place in Group A.

“I think this game has to be approached as such. I think it is decisive and we must try to get three points to move forward,” Marquez told a press conference.

“Knowing the result of that game (South Africa and Uruguay) forces us to look more for the win and I think it will be good in some way to know the outcome and prepare well for the game against France.”

“We know the power they have, the quality they have and at any time they can change everything. They are great players with great qualities and we cannot trust that you have not scored yet because we know they have the quality to do it,” he added.

“In the World Cup you have one or two chances and we have to put at least one of them away to have that advantage, we are aware of that and working for when we have one, we put it away.”
