Get your red, white, and green face paint ready.

Actually, bumpy isn't the right word. Mexico's performance as of late has been awful, horrible, terrible, no good, trash, painful, excruciating, frustrating, harsh, and just plain bad.

There are many reasons for the sad state of Mexico's National Team. But one thing is for sure: WE WILL BE THERE TO SUPPORT UNCONDITIONALLY.

Here are some reasons for why you should support the Mexican National Team at the World Cup:

1. Miguel Herrera is the most entertaining head coach in Mexican soccer history.

After going through THREE coaches in one year, Mexico finally settled on this man as our only hope. The man has passion and sometimes that's all it takes. And seriously, who can forget this epic celebration.

2. He loves to take selfies and that's awesome.

6. Now that he's playing for Spain's Villareal F.C., Giovani dos Santos will finally show up to Brazil ready to shine.

Just like Chicharito, dos Santos has also struggled in El Tricolor as of late. But fans are confident both will bring their A-game to Brazil. They don't have a choice.

7. Oribe Peralta will bring back the glory days of 2012, where he helped Mexico win the Gold Medal at the London Olympics, with a 2-1 win over Brazil in the finals.

11. Mexico has made spectacular comebacks before, like France '98 when Luis Hernandez scored that qualifying goal against Holland.

13. Soccer is in our blood. The Aztecs used to play a more hardcore version of the game called Ullamaliztli, where they would try to score the ball through a stone hoop using only their knees, hips, elbows and head.

16. Mexico is way more than a soccer team.

You're not just supporting eleven players kicking around a soccer ball. You're supporting a country, a culture, an identity that's deeply ingrained inside every Mexican and Mexican-American all over the world. You're supporting an entity that connects everyone with Mexican blood in their veins. It doesn't matter whether you're black, white, brown, rich, or poor, for a 90-minute soccer game, you're all on the same team, all across the globe, watching your cultural identity represented on a global platform.
