Either Mexico will reach their objective of making the final four of the Copa America Centenario, or Chile will have continued the title defense of their first Copa America triumph. There is plenty at stake in this tie, and it is all happening in Santa Clara, California for a chance at playing Colombia in the semifinals.

As well as the force of thousands of fans across the United States, Mexico carry with them an unbeaten run that stretches across 22 games. In this Copa America, El Tri have been typically steady, finishing on top of their group with two wins and a draw.

Critics, however, will say Mexico have made hard work of this Copa America. After close wins over Uruguay and Jamaica, Jesus "Tecatito" Corona spared the blushes for Juan Carlos Osorio by scoring a stunning Messi-esque goal against Venezuela to earn Mexico a late draw.

But Chile have received much of the same criticism. After starting the tournament with a defeat to Argentina, La Roja were lucky in some ways to beat Bolivia in their second game before beating a depleted Panamanian side. In that respect, both teams arrive to this game with a point to prove.

There is also the fact that both sides will back themselves to control this game. These aren't teams that like to set up shop and sit back. That, more than anything, could well make this match one of the most entertaining games of the whole tournament.
