Mexico FIFA 19 Ratings

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.)

Weekend Preview: 8/31

Clasico Nacional: English Edition?

Wolves vs West Ham is the game I will definitely be watching this weekend. Raul has played every minute this season for Wolves and Chicharito is coming off scoring a goal in a mid-week cup game. Besides that game, this weekend is full of good matchups.

FMF State of Mind Podcast: Week 7 Recap and El Tri Talk

Nearing the half way point of the LigaMX season and with El Tri releasing a new schedule, there was plenty to discuss on this week’s episode.

El Tri Youth Movement Has Begun

His jersey says 19 but he just turned 18

I was hoping the September callups were going to be on the younger side and the FMF (the squad was allegedly picked by Torrado and Te Kloese) came through.

September Callups and Beyond

How many of them will be in Qatar in 2022?

It’s nearly time for Mexico’s September friendlies but the FMF still hasn’t hired a coach. The current rumor is Tuca will coach the September friendlies and October if no coach is hired by then. If I was a Tigres fan, I would not be a fan of Tuca going on loan to El Tri again. But this post is not about the FMF struggling to fill the manager position. It’s about who should get a call for the upcoming friendlies versus Uruguay and the US. The next World Cup is still almost 4.5 years away but the road starts now and its good to keep in mind who can contribute then.

ESPN+ Is Worth Your Money

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.

How To Watch Mexicans Abroad 2018-2019

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 Chicharito playing against Chelsea but it might take some work to find Tecatito flying down the wings for Porto. I update a Google Calendar with dates and kickoff times but in this article, I’ll try to find where to watch those games. Whether its on TV or via a streaming service.
