The 2018 World Cup is here and what better time than now to look back at Mexico’s previous World Cup kits. I recap El Tri’s kits since the 1994 World Cup and give you my favorite memory at each World Cup. I do try to avoid the traumatic ones but no promises.
For a team short on creativity, losing Jesus Corona is definitely a blow for Mexico. The Sevilla winger suffered a fractured fibula earlier this week and reports point to a recovery time of 4-5 months. Seeing as Mexico opens their World Cup against Poland in 3 months, Tata will need to find a replacement to start.Continue reading
In a shock to no one, Adidas decided to give us a green jersey for the upcoming World Cup. It will also be the first jersey to feature the new crest. The old crest will always hold a special place in my heart but the new one has grown on me since it was announced. As it with all their World Cup kits, Adidas is using their new logo as well. So, there’s a lot going on in this kit. How did it turn out?Continue reading
After 14 World Cup Qualifying matches, a million moleros, and an untold number of “Fuera Tata” chants, we now know who Mexico will face at the World Cup. They are joined in Group C by Argentina, Poland, and Saudi Arabia. How does the group stack up for El Tri?Continue reading
Being the manager of the Mexican National Team is a thankless job with immense pressure. The media scrutiny is intense and you are expected to win everything in CONCACAF but at the same time, rarely given credit for doing so because CONCACAF is no CONMEBOL or UEFA. Add in a fanbase that expects you to win every game in an enjoyable fashion and it is easy to see why there are few takers every time the position is open. I take all of this into account when I try to keep a level head after a rough Mexico game when El Tri twitter wants to fire Tata. My friends/followers think I’m a “Tata Apologist” but I just never saw the benefit in making a coaching switch. Until now…
It’s that time of year. The newest version of FIFA is about to release and you know what that means: time to argue over player ratings. Of course, ratings tend to prefer Mexicans in Europe but they seem fine to me. Lets just hope they improve Pro Clubs… Besides the top rated players, I added some other players of note as well.Continue reading
Mexico kicked off their World Cup Qualifying campaign against a depleted Jamaican side. While a win was expected, Jamaica made Mexico work and took advantage of Mexico’s mistakes. This is a microcosm of the World Cup Qualifying experience. Strap in for a bumpy ride.Continue reading
No longer is it rare to turn on your TV early Saturday or Sunday morning and see a Mexican National team player playing in a European league. Of course, not all of them are easy to find on your program guide or preferred streaming service. It might be easy to turn on NBC and see Raul Jimenez playing against Chelsea but it might take some work to find Jesus Corona flying down the wings for Porto. I keep an updated Google Calendar with dates and kickoff times that will make it easier to know when these games are taking place but in this article, I’ll try to find where to watch those games. Whether its on TV or via a streaming service.Continue reading
