  • Description

    To ensure the best possible showing by their national team in Group One of the 1970 World Cup Football championship, Mexico has provided its team with one of the most lavish training centres in the world.

    Situated alongside the Aztac Stadium--where the Group One and the Final Matches will be played--the Mexican's facilities are unrivalled in international football.

    The team only moved in a week ago--and already their game has shown improvement over the shock defeat they underwent against Borussia Dortmund.

    All the comforts of home--and luxury hotel--are available to the players, who live in the traditional-style Spanish residence sharing two or three to a room. They also have extensive common rooms, such as lounges, dressing-rooms, dining and play rooms.

    Uniformed police and detectives are on round-the-clock guard to ward off intruders.

    The full complex is not yet completed--although two full-size football pitches, and several smaller ones for five-a-sides, are already in full use for the daily compulsory training sessions.

    The whole complex is surrounded by a high wall--with only one gate around which are a constant cluster of Mexican fans waiting to catch glimpses of their idols.

    Mexico shares the Group One play with Russia, Belgium and El Salvador.
