Samantha Martínez [4] is blogging on Tarjeta Azul [5] about the day-to-day at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. This time, she shares her passion [6] for her country's national team, Mexico, and sums up the rivalry between this team and the local one, and shows her support for the Mexican crew:

¡Que se acaben los prejuicios! Apoyar y creer en el triunfo mexicano NO es patriotismo ciego, es optimismo. Mejor vivir así la vida, ver el vaso medio lleno. Recurriendo a los preceptos generales de autoestima y emprendimiento, el cuestionamiento principal es: Si tú no crees en ti mismo ¿Quién más lo va a hacer?. Creemos en ti México. ¡Vamos TRI! ¡A ganar!

No more prejudices! To support and believe in a Mexican victory is NOT blind patriotism, it's optimism. It's better to live this way, seeing the glass half full. By using these general self-esteem and endeavor precepts, the main question is: if you don't believe in yourself, who else will believe? We believe in you, Mexico. Come on, three stripes! Let's win!

Stay up-to-date with the World Cup via the author's blog and on Twitter [7].
