Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado is adamant that his side can achieve a lot more at the World Cup after reaching the second round of the tournament.

Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado has insisted that his side have plenty more to accomplish at the World Cup after reaching the knockout stage.

Miguel Herrera's side finished second in Group A level on points with Brazil after beating Cameroon and Croatia while drawing with the host nation.

The 27-year-old feels that he and his teammates can achieve a lot more in Brazil and take the scalp of the Netherlands in their second-round clash.

"We not only made it through the group phase, we did it deservedly and in style, in a way we're pleased with and which gives us a lot of confidence," Guardado told FIFA.com.

"Even so, despite what we've done, we've not achieved anything tangible just yet and our mission is by no means accomplished."

Mexico take on the Netherlands in Fortaleza on Sunday.
