On Friday Mexico played the opening game with host South-Africa. Mexicans in Iceland gathered in a bar at Laugavegur. They were quite excited as you can see in the accompanying video from mbl.is. One fan claimed: “If Mexico wins this game it goes all the way to the final.” Mexico did not win, but the game was good fun. The video begin with a short introduction in Icelandic but goes on to intetviews in English.
