The majority of the Mexico players and staff looked on from their hotel room balconies before moving downstairs and joining the fans, conducting their chants and swinging their shirts around their heads.

El Tri manager Miguel Herrera posted a selfie on his Twitter account, accompanied by the message: "These are fans. I love them. Thanks for being with us and the support."
