Mexico

 

In what is turning out to be the Americas Cup of World Cups, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: Mexico has the best fans. Sure, you might think Brazil has the home field advantage or that Japanese fans are nutty for being on a plane for 23 hours in order to attend the tournament, but they’ve got nothing on Mexico, whose fans are proving to be absolutely fanatical for futbol. Watch one of their games and you’ll see the camera spending nearly as much time on fans in the stands as players on the field— and there’s a reason for it. When it comes to expressing their delight (or their dismay) for their team’s performance, no one does it more expressively.
