WCQ Playoff: New Zealand no pushovers as they await El Tri

Wednesday November 13 2013,
Tags: World Cup Qualifiers, New Zealand, Mexico
Despite already being written off, the Kiwis have a great chance of securing a place in Brazil as they prepare to take on Mexico.

Thanks to Graham Zusi who scored for the US national side against Panama a few weeks back, Mexico managed to secure fourth place in the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers last month. There was relief all across Mexico as the national side had made quite a meal of things during the qualification campaign.
On the other side of the world however, the reaction was viewed with quite indignation.

After qualifying for the intercontinental playoffs against a country from Oceania, the Mexicans seem bullish about their chances of securing a berth for Brazil 2014, something that many Kiwi players have not found impressive at all.

Panama vs Mexico: Watch this match live on Fox Soccer or online as El Tri seeks revenge

Panama came out on top when both sides met earlier in the competition. LiveSoccerTV shows you where to watch this match live with Mexico looking slightly more confident heading into it.

Preview: Panama looking for another historic victory

When both these sides took the field in their opening match of the group stage, Mexico undoubtedly had a hand full of question marks surrounding their manager. After losing that match 2-1, angry Mexican fans expressed their concern surrounding Manuel de la Torre's job security.

Fortunately for de la Torre, El Tri has managed to bounce back, outscoring their opponents 6-1. When you put that stat along side Panama's unbeaten run, having outscored their opponents 9-2, this should be a match with a few goals to offer.

Mexico vs Panama: Watch El Tri’s live Gold Cup 2013 opener on July 7

Some of the biggest networks in the world – Sportsnet World, ESPN, Univision and Fox Soccer – are preparing for the live broadcast of Mexico vs Panama on Sunday, July 7, 2013.

Marco Fabian is under the spotlight ahead of Mexico vs Panama - Gold Cup 2013 Matchday 1Preview: M. Fabian's El Tri eyeing a positive start

This Gold Cup fixture will open El Tri’s defence of their CONCACAF title. The good news for the Mexicans’ backline is that it will not need to contain Blas Perez at the Rose Bowl. The Panama striker has opted to miss this encounter for tonight’s big MLS clash between FC Dallas and LA Galaxy due to take place at the StubHub Center at 22:30 ET. Meanwhile, Mexico vs Panama kicks off at 20:00 ET.

Adding to Panama’s key absences are Godoy Cruz midfielder Armando Cooper and 32-year-old defender Felipe Baloy of Santos Laguna. El Tri’s manager, Jose Manuel de la Torre, is thus expected to live up to the challenge and snatch maximum points from his side’s Gold Cup opener.

Pressure is something the coach must deal with as pundits believe that this tournament presents a final chance to redeem his career. One of the home-grown stars who could lend a helping hand to De La Torre is attacker Marco Fabian. The London 2012 Olympics gold medallist told the press ahead of the Gold Cup:

“We understand clearly the great opportunity we have in front of us. We have to demonstrate our abilities. We have to demonstrate them to ourselves, the coaching staff and the rest of the country. It's an honor to be here.”

With the exclusion of European-based regulars, Mexico’s young squad cannot complain of lack of space to shine. The 2013 Gold Cup is an immense chance for the players involved to prove that they belong to the future of the national team.

The battle against Panama this Sunday is one they are keen on winning.

Watch El Tri perform in Costa Rica vs Mexico live on Telemundo – September 7

Tags: Costa Rica, Mexico, Telemundo, World Cup qualifying
Costa Rica vs Mexico airs live from the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica in San Jose on Telemundo. Kick-off time for viewers in USA is 19:30 EST.
Eight players from the Mexican squad that clinched gold at the London 2012 Olympics have been called up by Jose Manuel de la Torre. The coach will demand a positive attitude from his side after the defeat to the United States last month.

Chicharito is set to play a major role for Mexico against Costa Rica. The Manchester United striker did not take part in El Tri’s Olympic triumph this summer due to fitness reasons. He will be aiming for a great return to competitive football with the national team.

Mexico’s third most capped international, Gerrardo Torrado of Cruz Azul, could add one more cap to the 135 he currently has. One year after defeating Costa Rica 4-1 in the Gold Cup, El Tri are poised to claim another victory.

Rafael Marquez Lugo Leads Morelia To The Finals; Gets A Snub From El Tri

Tuesday May 17 2011,
Tags: Rafael Marquez Lugo, Morelia, Mexico
Despite the fact that the Monarcas may very well win the Clausura 2011, Rafael Marquez Lugo will probably not get all the recognition he deserves from his splendid season and post-season efforts.
By: C.I. Sanchez

Alas he has been overlooked for Mexico’s Gold Cup squad—eclipsed by Monterrey’s Aldo De Nigris and his own teammate, Elias Hernandez. Yet Marquez Lugo has been a consistent drive in Morelia’s fight to the championship and should be allowed to play for El Tri.

Perhaps the grounds for neglecting Marquez Lugo centre on the notion that he is neither an “old pro” nor a “superstar kid.” He has not had the experience of an “old pro,” like that other Rafael Marquez of FC Barcelona and now NYC Red Bulls.

Mexico vs Venezuela Report

A turbulent mini-era of Mexican football ends in Ciudad Juárez as El Tri draw with a brave Venezuela.
Mexico bid adieu to a roller coaster 2010 by playing what can only be described as a charity match in violence-torn Ciudad Juárez against a Venezuela team that are putting the rest of South America on notice with their rapid development. Two Juan Arango goals from set pieces provided all of the Vinotinto's offense, while Manchester United's Javier Hernández and Tottenham's Giovani dos Santos bagged one each for their country in order to avoid the home loss. Pitch invasion, "Maza" Rodriguez's red card and post-match drama were also notable lowlights.

Mexico vs Venezuela Preview

El Tri will take the pitch in its last match of 2010, celebrating the swan song against Venezuela.
After the referee blows his whistle to end hostilities between Mexico and Venezuela, fans will likely be seeing the last of many wearing the characteristic green uniform of the CONCACAF giants.

They'll definitely be seeing the last of Efrain Flores on the touchline. A new era is expected to be ushered in in the following weeks, with either Toluca boss José Manuel de la Torre or Monterrey manager Victor Manuel Vucetich taking the reins.

Several players might be on their way out of the team due to age or disciplinary reasons: a party in which prostitutes and alcohol purportedly played a major factor between national team players has already yielded two suspendees in Arsenal striker Carlos Vela and Celtic midfielder Efrain Juarez.

Meanwhile, Venezuela look forward to Brazil 2014 under Cesar Farias, and will attempt to break into the top of the heap in South America, en route to their first World Cup appearance.

Mexico are winnersIn the CONCACAF region, the table’s leaders Costa Rica host the 2009 Gold Cup champions Mexico in what promises to be a thrilling encounter.

Mexico are favorites again

El Tri are currently out of the qualification zone as they seat fourth in the six-team group table. They’ve picked up only 9 points from a possible 18. These facts indeed reveal their reality in which Mexico are living. However, the team’s recent success in the Gold Cup looks to have redefined their strength in depth.

Coach Javier Aguirre’s mixture of veterans with young chaps has truthfully paid off the country’s pride. Giovanni Dos Santos, Carlos Vela, and Miguel Sabah are key players in the Mexican squad. The trio particularly contributed to Mexico’s success in the Gold Cup competition that was held earlier in July.
