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.

With both nations announcing their rosters, many were quick to point out the makeup of each side. It started a discussion about the leagues where the players are currently at. With twitter user @xGoalsMX pointing out that Mexico has more (4) MLS players in camp than the USMNT (3). A much larger discrepancy was evident in the number of players in the “Top 5 European Leagues” with US Soccer having 16 players to Mexico’s 5. The question has to be asked, do these numbers indicate Mexico is behind US Soccer in producing quality players for their national teams?
