Of the eight quarterfinalists at this U-20 World Cup, England seems to have the easiest passage to the final four. In the round of 16, it was matched up against a lackluster Costa Rica, and the last eight it will play another out-of-sorts CONCACAF side.
Mexico hasn't looked great at this tournament. A last-minute goal against 10-man Senegal put it into the quarterfinals, and it only got out of the group stage thanks to a stoppage-time match-winner against Vanuatu. El Tri has played one top-tier, in-form opponent so far at this World Cup - and it lost to Venezuela, 1-0.
But the longer a team can stick around in a competition like this, the better its chances of finding form and fluency. If Mexico's best game of the tournament to date is this one - that is exactly as the team's coaching staff will have hoped. A team that gets better with every game will give itself a very good shot at making the final.
Still, count England as the favorite to win this match. The Young Lions came out of a challenging group, beating Argentina and South Korea along the way. They have scored in every game they've played at this tournament, and the defense has only been breached by an own goal and a penalty.
England will be expected to advance to the semifinals. Mexico will look to spring the upset of the quarterfinal round.
