Mexico in the Confederations cup: A protocol guide to the mexican team to communicate a positive image in Brazil


Visiting an exotic country like Brazil is seductive. Walking on the streets, go to the most important tourist places and the football stadiums that in a year will be hosting the World Cup.

It would be good to question players and managers of the mexican team how much and what they know about Brazil, beyond just knowing just about their sports heroes and stadiums. What do they know about their culture and traditions, What is well accepted by them and what is not? 

To the country that you go, do what you see.

Here is a brief guide to the mexican team:

1. Conversation

Communicating with brazilians is warm, complex, informal and highly personal.

The way that the brazilians greet men and women is similar than we do in Mexico. Men shake hands and greet women with a kiss on the cheek.

A good way to “break the ice” with brazilians is talking about soccer, obviously, but there are also another good topics of conversation as weather, traffic (if you are in Sao Paulo), all about the Confederations Cup and the next World Cup, music and their economy. Avoid conversations that create controversy, for example, asking who is better between Pele or Maradona or rivalries between brazilian and argentinian teams.

Talking about poverty, security, deforestation, religion, racism, corruption, social inequality should be avoided.

Brazilians are proud of their ability to laugh at themselves. They like spontaneity. Even, are considered noisy because everybody wants to talk at the same time and with a high volume voice.

Do not be surprised if you are constantly interrupted by them. Do not think they are rude or have no interest in what you’re saying.

They like to touch people in a conversation. Their intention is to be as close as possible to communicate confidence and establish a long-term relationship with you.

They are not used to give orders but advices so they can feel easily offended with unfriendly conversations.

Two. Breakfast, lunch and dinner

The main meals are breakfast, between 7 and 9 am, lunch, between noon and 2 pm, and dinner starting from 7 pm.

Brazilians usually arrive 15 minutes late but in social events they used to arrive between one hour and two hours later.

They like to observe the manners of people at the table and like when a person knows how to eat and drink with education. They always wash their hands before eating and never touch food with their hands, except fruits and chicken. They use a knife and a fork and use a napkin after eating and drinking.

Never use chopsticks and do not burp while you’re at the table.

In a toast, raise your glass and say “Saúde”. Drink it slowly immediately after saying it.

Three. Public Behavior

Spontaneity is so valuable for brazilians but that does not mean you can do what you want.

When you meet someone you say your name and give a handshake. Women are greeted with a kiss on the cheek.

When greeting someone you can say, “Oi, tudo bem? (Hey, you all right?), Or “Olá, como vai” (Hello, how are you?). Eye contact is important for brazilians. An informal way to say goodbye in Brazil is “Tchau” (Goodbye) and give a handshake.

Talking about salaries, marital status and age should be avoided, as well as sexist conversations.

Avoid joining the thumb with the index and form a circle, this is an insult.

What does Gigi Buffon´s image say?


He is a goalkeeper who takes life seriously. More than ten years being the goalkeeper of italian national soccer team. He has made ​​history and has printed the best of his image to the “azzurris”.

Gianluigui Buffon has a defiant way of looking and a mischievous smile. His seductive and sexy personality seek to catch the attention, and sends a powerful message of provocation. Safety from his head to his feet.

His look is an element that readily distinguishes him. A 3 day beard, pins in his hair, also the color and designs of his sweaters gives him a modern look to his image and breaks the stereotype of a traditional goalkeeper.

His hoarse voice is intimidating. He doesn´t leave words when he speaks showing that his image is full of self-confidence without concealing his most serious side.

This serious personality that he projects in interviews and press conferences, breaks the image that we see of him on the field, when he makes jokes with coaches and teammates.

Gianluigui Buffon is a sports image that has become a true and total legend in the italian goal.

Calm, Tri, calm


All soccer fans have a coach in their heads that gives instructions, moves pieces like a chessman, removes players who show no character as well as those who do not have the right attitude to win the game.


The coach’s role today is no longer limited to that. Now, he should be able to understand better their players, manage their egos, lead and motivate them to achieve personal and group goals.


The image of a coach should be aware that if he is anxious and desperate the player will the same as him. His example, calm and how he andel his emotions are fundamental to communicate his personality to his players. Dont´ confuse this with the absence of passion, enthusiasm and courage.


The personality of a coach is projected in his team and how his players drive their successes and failures. A coach must not limit his efforts on tactics, rhetoric, turning their players in a club of optimists or people who can easily be “brainwashed” and manipulate. He should transmit a positive energy and project the image required at a specific time.


In the last games, Chepo de la Torre looked anxious and desperate. The pressure to win games it is absorbing him and he looks confused, discouraged and alone.


Mexico´s soccer team needs reassurance. It is easy to say with words but Chepo should be aware that he should manage well his energies to project more calm to his players.


Confederations Cup is a great opportunity to change the negative image left by the “Tri” in World Cup qualifying, but things will not change, bringing another coach. He has to choose the right attitude.


The wardrobe of Chepo should be more relaxed. It evidences authority but this message is not close enough to his players. This is the time when they need support, empathy and a “dictator” without an iron image.

How can a player can build his image?


A player choose the image that he wants to have. It may be due to circumstances, convenience or because he is more awareness about it.

It is quite true that not all the players are able to trascend in levels of popularity, fame and earnings. This is not what an athlete should only be eager for. His image could catapult him so far, more than he believes.

The player needs to distinguish between what he believes and wants of himself. A self-analysis and a study will help him to get the perception of the people with he has more contact, for example, coach, president, teammates, media, family, friends and fans that could help him to start building his image.

When he dimensions the potential that he could have with his image, more than just appearing on advertising and marketing campaigns, the player becomes a strategist about his image in an environment where many players dress, say and behave in the same way.

The best for a player is to act naturally. Cheating his personality would be credible for a while but then when he lost everything the consequences in the perception of success that he wants to have would be fatal.

Once he recognized as a person with a certain profile, then it is advisable to begin to act and implement his image strategy, it will work if he commits and maintains it.

There are players who, according on their personality have built an image strategy more successful than others. The following examples, players with different personalities, are perceived as:

1. Nearby:

Javier “Chicharito” Hernández
Giovanni Dos Santos
Didier Drogba

2. Discrete

Jose de Jesus Corona
Xavi Hernandez
Andres Iniesta

3. Egocentric

Cristiano Ronaldo
Cuauhtemoc Blanco
4. Hated

Wayne Rooney
Zlatan Ibrahimovic
Mario Balotelli

5. Beloved

Lionel Messi
Iker Casillas

6. Media celebrity

David Beckham
Samuel Eto’o
Guillermo Ochoa

I am not saying that many of them have a better image than the others. These cases talk about the effectiveness of the messages they communicate through their image and makes it credible for a long term period

The construction of the image of the player depends on 50% of what he does, says and acts in a short, medium and long term, and 50% of what people say about him.

If the player really knows what he wants and believes in it, he can make his image a very profitable asset that will benefit him in the future.

Jürgen Klopp´s image vs. Jupp Heynckes´s image -face to face-


A “german” Champions league final between former champion and defending champion of the Bundesliga is close. The “black horse” who wears the colors of Dortmund against the steed of München that doesn´t give up in this competition.

Jürgen Klopp against Jupp Heynckes. Two schools, two styles, two personalities, two identities, two sports images. Kloop represents hope and Heynckes is the experience of german football.

Make a prediction on a winner does not look easy. It is the student against the teacher. The surprise against the master. The image of a rebellious coach, “dirty” and dynamic against a coach with a polite image, courteous and well-mannered that he don´t change his style in his wardrobe.

Jürgen Klopp´s image

Jürgen Klopp is an explosive man whose emotions seem to overtake him on the field. He communicates that he is an intense coach, passionate, unconventional and innovative.

Versatile with his appearance, he likes to change the frames of his glasses and look dynamic with the style of his beard and hair, like an artist that find different ways to do not get bored of himself.

His excepcional and outgoing personality can be predictable as unpredictable. Sure or dangerous as well, he can be seen wearing a suit and a jacket or using a sweatshirt with a cap and pants, sending a message much more relaxed and unconcerned than just look fine.

Jürgen Klopp´s image is opening him a path that is helping him to write his name into a legacy of german coaches, despite he did n´t stand out as a player.

Jupp Heynckes´s image

Beyond a stickler man there is a coach who projects trust, ability and responsibility.

He is Jupp Heynckes. Best known as the german ‘Osram’ by his characteristic change of color in his face when he is under stress.

Sometimes his face makes him look unfriendly but this message of his image is in harmony with his conservative dress style also that justifies what he is: a serious and moderated man.

Although many attempts to demonstrate his discrete profile, he communicates proximity with his players, breaking his distant and cold image that seems he has as a coach.
Jupp Heynckes´s image has led him to the summit of world football coaches.

Thus Kloop´s rebel image faces a understated style, serious and coldest image of Heynckes. Factors that influence definitely in their leadership and how to lead the successes and failures of their respective teams.

The victory will be for more than just a game of 11 against eleven… It´s the game of image and styles.

The actual image of Cristiano Ronaldo, gives up

Actually, Cristiano Ronaldo demonstrates us a weak personality acting with tantrums and feelings of sadness that don´t were unsuccessful for the success of his image.

Neither his haircut, his beautiful girlfriend, his new car or tv ads were enough to benefit his image, and his hopes to build a strong reputation were shattered.

Cristiano creates an image of victim that does not work. He is against everything and everybody, and this attitude put him away from sports awards, applauses and recognition of others that he could win a few years ago.
