"I am incredibly happy", said Rodolfo Pulido, 47, who watched the match with his girlfriend and son on a Father's Day outing.

He also said he could now dream of Mexico reaching the next stage along with 15 other teams, getting a shot at reaching the quarter- and semi-finals before the final match.
