Two more coaches came and went. Luis Fernando Tena was sacked after losing his first game and Vctor Manuel Vucetich lost his job after two matches in charge. Mexico, at that point, just had two wins in 10 games and it was up to Miguel Herrera to bail them out. For a team that had won the Olympics gold just a year back, it had all come down to a play off against New Zealand to make the final, and they did it in style, winning 9-3 on aggregate. A loss, and Herrera would have been the latest to come worse off in the Mexican standoff.
