Copa America

The Positives of Chile 7 - Mexico 0

Mexico’s drubbing at the hands of eventual champions Chile left many a Mexico supporter devastated. It was the worst loss Mexico suffered in anything anyone cared about. It hurt.

Three Points from Mexico v Uruguay

1. Triumph of the TInkerman

The predilection of Juan Carlos Osorio to adjust his lineup and tactics from match to match has beena  source of both confidence and consternation in the Mexican fan base. Some might be troubled by his peculiar formations that excludes proven talent. Others point to his adaptability and willingness to approach each match with an open mind. There is a case to be made for each, but one side is definitely building a stronger case.

Juan Carlos Osorio and Mexico Prevail Over Uruguay

The lead-up to Mexico's opening match in this Copa America is one full of speculation. The debate as to how Mexico will organize on the field and which eleven will present has been varied.  Would there be a three man back line? Would manager Juan Carlos Osorio really start Rafa Marquez? Would Hirving Lozano and Tecatito Corona form a formidable attack alongside Chicharito?

Two National Teams

One summer. Two big tournaments.

Mexico is faced with fielding a national team for this summer's Gold Cup and Copa America.  While it would be nice to bring Mexico's best possible eleven to each tournament, it is unreasonable and not particularly nice for those selected players. There isn't a long offseason for soccer players; filling it with two separate international tournaments is a bit much.

World Cup Qualifying: Has It Always Been This Scary?

We're only three games into qualifying, and the worries have already begun (I'm not helping, I worry too much as well). People have been questioning Chepo, the team selections, and most all, the likelihood of Mexico still finishing in the top three. As it stands, Mexico are sitting uncomfortably at the fifth spot in the Hex. Optimists will tell you that they're only two points from the top, pessimists will tell they're one point from the bottom, and realists will tell you that they're not moving anywhere until June 4th.
