All eyes will be on Mexico's tactics against Uruguay when a point will see them into the last 16 and a possible clash with Argentina.

The two Latin American sides in Group A are separated on goal difference so Mexico's only hope of finishing top - and in all probability avoiding Diego Maradona's rampaging troops who are set to win Group B - is to go for the win.

"I hope we can impose our style against Uruguay," coach Javier Aguirre said last week, wary of the threats posed by the South Americans who have a quality forward pairing of Diego Forlan and Luis Suarez.

Whatever the many permutations, Mexico defender Ricardo Osorio was in no doubt the match would light up the tournament, so far being played in a largely defensive manner.

"You'll see some good football, which is what has been missing. What we've seen until now is stingy football," Osorio said.
