Mexico national team head coach Miguel "Piojo" Herrera has become a social-media sensation at this World Cup with his frenzied celebrations. But it only happens because he has something to celebrate.
El Tri take on the Netherlands in the Round of 16 on Sunday in Fortaleza (12 pm ET, ESPN, Univision, CBC), and Herrera fully expects to celebrate again.
"There will be more celebrations tomorrow because I am sure we will score more goals and win the match," Herrera told the media on Saturday.

Off the field, Herrera has embraced his global celebrity. On Twitter, where images of his contorted face and body appear regularly, Herrera has retweeted many of the comments and photos.
And now he is encouraging fans to Tweet their photos of celebration using the hashtag #PiojoFestejo.
