As every sport football is full of emotions, especially at a big tournament like the World Cup. Mexico’s coach, Miguel Herrera, became one of the most popular characters of World Cup 2014 thanks to his personality.
Herrera began his professional playing career in 1986 at Atlante, then he played for several Mexican outfits like Santos Laguna and Neza before he retired in 2000.
The former defender played more than 380 league games in Mexico and scored 21 goals. He played 14 times for the Mexican national team. ‘Piojo’ began his coaching career in 2002 at his former club Atlante.
In October 2013, Herrera became the interim national coach of Mexico. He led the team to World Cup 2014 with a 9-3 aggregate victory against New Zealand in the intercontinental play-off. His award was a full-time contract and the World Cup participation which he has made memorable.
Herrera is a very emotional coach and he has outbursts of joy after every Mexican goal. His reactions tell everything about his passion. But we let the pictures talk.
