Two-time champions Mexico would look to end their disappointing run of form so far in the tournament and notch up their first win when they take on Chile in their final group game of the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup here on Saturday.

Mexico did not make a great start to the tournament as they were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Iraq. They went on to suffer a narrow 2-3 reverse against England. And also pray that Iraq lose to England in Kolkata.

With four points, they should be one of the four best third place finishers to qualify for the knock-out round.

A win or a draw for Iraq will leave Mexico with very little chance to advance to the next stage.

The South Americans have conceded seven goals without a reply in the two group matches they have played so far. A win in their last match at this edition of the U-17 World Cup will help salvage at least some of that lost pride. They lost both the matches to England and Iraq.
