Mexico's future is in dynamic wing players. Specifically, Jesus "Tecatito" Corona and Hirving "Chucky" Lozano, of Porto and PSV, respectively. Watch the two combine for the only goal in Mexico's 1-0 win over Panama Friday, the goal that officially sends the Mexico National Team to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Not that they didn't need a little luck getting there.

Anyway, Mexico is qualified and has nothing to worry about until June 2018. Mexico is the fifth team to qualify, joining Russia, Brazil , Iran and Japan.
