Piojo has released his list of extranjeros for the October call ups and I have to admit, I am a little surprised.
Another weekend, another packed fixture list for our boys in Europe. Lets dive in
As I watched El Grito de Dolores on TV last night, it got me thinking about my proudest moment as a fan of El Tri. My mind quickly went to the 2012 Olympic tournament. More specifically, the magical Gold medal game against Brasil.
Club soccer is back on in Europe. There are plenty of Mexicans expected to suit up for their clubs. Gone are the days of being happy to have a Mexican just make the bench. Lets see when these games kick off..
I was excited for this match but expected an uneven performance with the squad Piojo picked. What did we get? An uneven performance. I think several players had good games and helped their standing with the national teams, but the team was unable to finish the chances created. Overall, these 2 games did their job: provided glimpses of players for Piojo’s next 11.
Besides the fact that it is a Tuesday night and you likely have nothing else better to do, there are other reason to watch this game.
Mexico battled a strong Chile team to a goal less draw. It sounds a lot more exciting than that but it is what it is. The game felt like a track meet for most of the 90 minutes. Below are some thoughts on the game. Nothing too crazy, I’m just splitting it up into a couple sections for a quick read.
The more and more you look at the career of Javier Hernandez, the more you think you’re reading some script for a movie or a telenovela. His career started in one of the biggest clubs in North America and taken him to two of the biggest clubs in Europe. He became a fan favorite at United but the time has come to find greener pastures elsewhere. The loan to Real Madrid with a buy option has many wondering if it was the “right” move. So much that Tomas Boy chimed in for some reason. I stand with the minds that think this is a good move and I have my reason why.
