Croatia, currently 16th in the FIFA Rankings, has faced off against Mexico on four different occasions, with each squad winning two games. Croatia emerged victorious during their first two matches in 1992 and 1999, while Mexico defeated Croatia in Japan during the 2002 FIFA World Cup. The last time these two nations met was during the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil in a match that Mexico won 3-1 in Recife, ensuring their pass into the round of 16.
The Coliseum has welcomed the Mexican team on numerous occasions since its opening in 1923. Most recently, Mexico defeated Ecuador 1-0 in front of a sellout crowd of 88,000 fans on a 14th minute goal by striker Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez in March of 2015.
