If there’s one thing that gets my weekend off to a great start its a Chicharito brace. Or MOTM performance by Lozano. Or Jimenez scoring a game winner versus Manchester United. The current crop of Mexicans Abroad might finally be changing the conversation when it comes to foreign clubs signing Mexicans.
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. Mexico players have been getting more respect from EA Sports. Gone are the days when the highest rated Mexican is in the mid-70s. While many players play multiple positions, my list will focus on what FIFA 19 has as their “best” position in the game. (Except for Layun, I looked up to see what his rating was as a left back.)
It has been a long time coming but ESPN’s attempt at a direct to consumer streaming network is here. Unfortunately for some, it was not what they were hoping for. They were hoping for a full replacement to ESPN & ESPN2 but that’s not going to happen as long as ESPN keeps getting subscriber fees from cable companies. Once you get past that disappointment, you will realize they have built a great streaming service for cord cutters and cable subscribers alike. And if you are a fan of soccer, it is more than worth your $5 a month.
We are reaching the home stretch of the club season. Some Mexicans are playing for promotion (Layun), some for titles (Guardado), and others are just trying to show their quality for the summer window (Moreno).
