Mexico Ties Guatemala In The Gold Cup

In a game that left many disappointed, Mexico struggled to a 0-0 draw with Guatemala, a team Mexico were expected to beat easily, and a team that was down to 10 men for the final 15-ish minutes.

Mexico's Andres Guardado was named man of the match, but had a close-range volley saved that would have put Mexico ahead.

Guatemala's Jose Contreras was shown a second yellow in the 76th minute, forcing Guatemala to go down a man.

Mexico couldn't finish, shooting 19 times and controlling about 80 percent of the possession but still failing to find the net. 

No Era Penal: A Year Later

The 2014 FIFA World Cup has come and gone. It’s been more than a year since Germany took home the championship and since Mexico suffered a controversial exit at the hands of the Netherlands.

Mexico had fought tooth and nail against some of the tournament’s favorites. A Guillermo Ochoa-inspired Mexico kept a clean sheet against host Brazil, the second time in a row that Mexico had to face a host nation (South Africa in 2010).

Highlights: Mexico Demolishes Cuba In The Gold Cup

It's actually sort of a slight on Mexico that they didn't beat Cuba by more last night.

El Tri had 44 shots on the night, but only sic of those went in. 

Oribe Peralta had a hat trick for Mexico, with Carlos Vela, Andres Guardado and Giovani dos Santos also scoring.

Cuba was down to 16 players after six players (plus the manager) were held up in Cuba and one defected after arriving in the United States. 

Mexico’s Summer To Forget

Mexico’s national teams have had a Summer to forget. Every national team representing Mexico at a large international tournament has suffered failure.

With Mexico failing on all fronts this Summer, fans have emitted a collective groan of disappointment.

The Mexican saying, “They played like never before but lost like always,” can’t even be used in these circumstances. It’s been more of “there they go again, blowing their opportunity for international glory.”

Mexico Needs Win Against France for A Chance At Glory

In only their third World Cup, Mexico’s women are still fighting to stay alive in a tournament where they haven't scored a win.

After games against Colombia and England, El Tri Femenil continue their World Cup campaign against France. Can they get a result? They need to if they’ll want any chance of progressing to the next stage.

Without a win, a first for Mexico at a World Cup, Mexico will be eliminated at the group stage of the tournament.

Mexico Starts Off Their Copa America Campaign With A Draw Against Bolivia

Mexico’s pre-Copa America preparations are done and over with. The real deal has started for El Tri, but their performance against their first opponent, Bolivia, has fans wondering whether they are up for the challenge.

In their Group A match in the Estadio Sausalito in Vina de Mar, Mexico left fans hoping for more. They failed to spark into life in their first Copa America test, drawing the match against Bolivia 0-0.

Miguel Herrera Draws Ire For Politically Charged Tweet

With the Copa America and the Gold Cup coming up this summer, Miguel “El Piojo” Herrera managed to take some time away from his commitments with the national team to voice his thoughts on Mexico’s upcoming elections.

The Mexican Soccer Federation is investigating whether or not Herrera violated any policies involved with the national team.
