Though France has had the better of possession, Mexico has looked the slightly more dangerous side in a relatively even, scoreless first half in Polokwane where the bigger news is who is no longer in the match and who will miss the next tone.
Carlos Vela has had to be subbed-out in the 31st minute after picking up a leg injury. Pablo Barrera was brought on as a replacement by Javier Aguierre.
In stoppage time, Jeremy Toulalan picked-up a yellow card as a result of a professional foul. The defensive midfielder will be suspended for France's match against South Africa, having also been booked on Friday.
France has had the better of the possession but has not been able to create scoring opportunities in the final third, while Mexico has created chances for Giovani dos Santos, Carlos Salcido and Barrera, mostly on the counter attack.
Both teams came into this match with one point, three points behind Uruguay in Group A.
