Then, they missed the 1982 world cup and got banned from the 1990 tournament. Since then, they haven’t missed a single world cup tournament. Their highest finish at the World Cup since 1930 is the quarterfinals.

Historical Events

In 1970 and 1986, the nation hosted the FIFA World Cup competitions. And on both occasions, they made it to the competition’s quarterfinals. Mexico was one of the best teams in the tournament, especially at the 1986 world cup competition, where they didn’t lose any game in the regular 90 minutes. They won three and drew two in regular time.

Their best run came at the 1986 FIFA World Cup competition played in Mexico. It was an exciting time for the nation, even though it was the second time they had hosted the competition. Although they were knocked out at the same stage as the last time they hosted, the 1986 campaign was their best to date.

The most notable players in the history of Mexico at the World Cup are Rafael Marquez and Antonio Carbajal. Both players made it to five world cup competitions. We’ve seen a few more exciting players make it to multiple world cups and deliver memorable moments for the team.

Some of them include Javier Hernandez, Guillermo Ochoa, Andres Guardado, Luis Hernandez, Giovani Dos Santos, Chava Reyes, and Gerardo Torrado.
