Mexico Coach Looked Way More Excited Than His Players After Every Goal Against Croatia (GIFs)


One thing was clear after each of the three goals Mexico scored in its final game of the group stage: nobody was more excited than coach Miguel Herrera. With each El Tri goal against Croatia on Monday came a wild and enthusiastic celebration from Herrera.

Coaching in his first ever World Cup with a chance to advance to the Round of 16, the 46-year-old was held in check throughout the first half as both teams failed to score. In the second half, Mexico erupted, as did Herrera. El Tri tallied three goals in a span of about 10 minutes, which allowed the television cameras to point to Herrera emphatically celebrating each time. Herrera, who was officially hired as Mexico's coach in October 2013, has become one of the must-see celebrations of the World Cup right up there with the Colombia squad.

Check out Herrera's reactions after each Mexico goal. Thanks to Mexico's 3-1 victory and the runner-up spot in Group A clinched, we might get to see some more Herrera celebrations.
