Mexico National Team

Mexico advances in the Gold Cup: Is the fix in at CONCACAF?

Seriously, is the Gold Cup fixed? Miguel Herrera earlier claimed various forces were against Mexico in the tournament, but now it looks like various forces (and by "forces, we mean "referees") want Mexico to win win the Gold Cup more than they want anything in the world.

First, there was this penalty, which we'll call "dubious." 

I can see it both ways. But the Costa Rican team, and various Costa Rican politicians, were pissed.

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. 

The Future Of El Tri Is El Tecatito

This Sunday, FC Twente of the Dutch Eredivisie take on Vitesse Arnhem, and while the lineups have not yet been made official, you can bet that Jesus “El Tecatito” Corona will be tapped by his manager for the starting XI. Since his debut, Jesus Corona has given his manager hardly any reason not to.
