A fiesta broke out in Brazil on Sunday night in front of Mexico’s team hotel, as hundreds of supporters blocked the street and serenaded the side. 

The players were humbled by the outpouring of support, and came down from their rooms to salute the crowd from a nearby balcony. 

There was also a mariachi band because Mexican soccer fans are great. 

Here’s a video of the impromptu party. 

A selfie posted by Mexican manager Miguel Herrera, saying "These are fans. I love them. Thanks for being with us and the support."

Another tweet from defender Hector Moreno.

Mexico won its first match of the tournament 1-0 against Cameroon on Friday.
