Even if you're not a soccer fan, you've surely heard by now that Mexico was eliminated from the World Cup yesterday.

The team, nicknamed El Tri was leading for most of the second half, but the Netherlands came back to tie and then win 2-1 on a penalty kick in stoppage time. Needless to say it was a devastating loss for Mexico fans.
