Mexico U-17 players of the 2011 generation

The 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup was held in home soil. Mexico was placed in Group A together with North Korea, Congo and the Netherlands. Mexico eventually finished first of their group after winning their three matches and advanced to the Round of 16 and the Quarter-Finals, where they won their matches against Panama and France respectively. In the semifinals, Mexico had to face Germany, the only other team in the competition who had not lost any of their matches. Germany had advantage during the first minutes of the second time, but Mexico came back to equalize the score after Jonathan Espericueta scored a second goal from a corner kick, where Julio Gómez was injured and left the field. However, Gómez came back in the dying minutes to score an overhead kick, the decisive goal in the final minute, the final score was 3-2 which translated into the first significant victory over Germany in history. Mexico faced Uruguay in the final, defeating them 2-0 in a very closed match where the balance could have tilted any way. Briseño scored the first goal in the first half when Uruguay was the dominating side. During the second half Uruguay kept pressing on and started to dominate again looking for the equalizer however, during the last advances their defense became disorganized and in a counterattack Giovani Casillas scored the finishing goal. With this result Mexico became champions without losing a single game in the tournament and also became the first host nation to win the U-17 World Cup.
