The squad led by Omar Quintero shone on the court of the Spaladium Arena in Split by defeating one of the best teams in the world and now his chances of landing a spot in the Olympics depend on Germany defeating Russia.
Mexico will qualify for the semifinals automatically if Germany defeats Russia, but if the latter manages to defeat the Teutonic team, the ticket to the next round would be defined by points difference.
