Miguel Herrera: "Everything was against Mexico"

Mexico manager Miguel Herrera says that luck was against his side as they exited the World Cup following a 2-1 reverse at the hands of the Netherlands.

Miguel Herrera believes that "everything was against Mexico" as his side bowed out of the World Cup with a 2-1 defeat against the Netherlands.

El Tricolor were just two minutes away from booking their place in the quarter-finals of the competition for the first time since 1986 until two late Dutch goals put an end to Mexican dreams.

"We had done really well," the 46-year-old is quoted as saying by Sky Sports News. "Then the team sits back and we start to give chances to a team that had not done anything.

"It's a World Cup where everything was against Mexico. Unfortunately, we didn't achieve what we wanted."

Herrera was appointed as manager of the Central Americans in 2013.
