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.
Mexico has basically sent their A-team to the Gold Cup and are in a group where the other 3 countries are ranked by FIFA as 127th, 103rd, and 69th in the world. It has cake walk written all over it. But as Mexico fans, you all know its never that easy in CONCACAF…
This summer is going to be packed full of CONCACAF matches. Starting with the Nations League, followed by the Gold Cup and ending with the opening matches of World Cup Qualifying. With all of that in mind, I knew Jon Arnold was the guy to talk to.
Jon Arnold reached out about who is the best player in CONCACAF right now. With seasons all but over, I thought about who I would name the CONCACAF Player of the Year. This season has a couple of favorites but for me there is one player that is above the others: Raul Jimenez.
