Just after halftime, El Tri scored with an impressive goal from Giovani dos Santos. Moments later, Enrique Peña Nieto wrote on Twitter: "Great gooool! @OficialGio you are great. Come on everyone!"  However, the celebration lasted only 45 minutes after two goals from Holland, in the last six minutes, eliminating Mexico from the World Cup. Enrique Peña Nieto wrote "Thank you for what you have done and for not giving up @miseleccionmx. Thanks @MiguelHerreraDT. Your country will never stop believing in you. ."

El Tri's World Cup hopes were dashed after the defeat to the Netherlands, which took place in last six minutesof play. Mexico was a few minutes away from making history and reaching their first encounter at the quarter finals since 1986 but lost 2-1 to a Holland who scored in the 88th minute and left the Tricolor out of the cup. The Tricolor let go of a great opportunity to reach the quarterfinals and fell cruelly to the Orange selection.
