Mexico is heading home after yet another round of 16 loss
The 2018 World Cup is underway. CBS Sports will have you covered for each game, all the important news and more, as well as profiles of all of the teams.
El Tri still can't get past the round of 16. Perhaps Mexico should consider itself lucky that it made it out of the group stage after an epic collapse against Sweden in which it lost 3-0, but a 2-0 loss to Brazil means that once against Mexico will fall just short of a quarterfinal appearance.
It was an impressive showing for Mexico despite losing their last two matches by a combined five goals. They took down the defending world champions in Germany in the opening match and then picked up another win over South Korea. Now, the team will look to the future in 2022 where it will likely feature a few different faces.

Hirving Lozano. The former Pachuca man and now PSV star is attracting interest from the Premier League and La Liga and rightfully saw. "Chucky" may be just 22, but he's an established budding star who has the potential to score a big summer move with a great showing. He's a fine winger who has speed, controls the ball really well and can produce consistently in attack.
Player to watch
Carlos Vela. He fell off the map a bit with his feud with the Mexico FA, but now that he's back, it's a big plus for this team because he's been killing it at Los Angeles FC in Major League Soccer. Vela scored seven goals in his first 11 matches for the MLS new boys and he's looked good doing it. He is healthy, confident and ready to go, and with him on one side and Lozano on the other, Mexico's in good shape in the final third.
