Europeans have problems with soccer in Mexico

Tens of thousands of jubilant Mexicans took to rain-soaked streets after their team beat Belgium 2-1. Meanwhile, officials grappled with technical hitches dogging global television relays of the World Cup. A spokesman for the international soccer federation said the head of the Telemexico consortium in charge of broadcasting arrangements had promised that the relay problems would receive immediate attention.

European broadcasting unions have accused Telemexico of failing to provide facilities already paid for by the Europeans, and demanded an official be appointed to cut through bureaucracy.

The win was welcomed by many Mexicans as the first good news they have had in years.
