Mexico Gives European Rivals Food For Thought Following 1-0 Defeat Of Poland

We know — as evidenced by their march through CONCACAF World Cup qualifying and a solid showing at the 2017 Confederations Cup — that this Mexico side is capable of making a splash at next summer’s World Cup, but just what should we expect from the world’s 16th-ranked side? Based on the evidence of their November friendlies on European soil, a lot.

Raul Jimenez Rips A Half-Volley Into The Roof Of The Net To Put El Tri Up On Poland

Some 40,000 Poles showed up at the Stadion Energa Gdansk to celebrate Poland’s qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia with a friendly match against Mexico on Monday, but the feel-good energy enveloping the arena was quickly ruined by El Tri striker Raul Jimenez.

Just when you thought Chicharito would have more chances to play, David Moyes is appointed West Ham manager. 

Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean bad news at first glance (even though many West Ham fans are reportedly pissed that Moyes was named boss).

Hirving Lozano Gives Mexico Fans Reason For World Cup Optimism

Ladies and gentlemen, Hirving Lozano is legit. We can say that without qualifiers. Against one of the best national teams in the world, Belgium, Lozano looked like a star, bagging a brace.

Both goals were good, too!

There’s No Shame In Being Way Too Excited About El Tri’s Upcoming Pair Of Friendlies

Mexico are certainly not taking it easy with regards to November’s international window. Friendlies against Belgium and Poland in Brussels and Gdansk represent World Cup warmups against the nations currently ranked fifth and sixth in the world, and their UEFA qualifying campaigns certainly give credence to those high-water marks.

This Is How You Win The Most Bizarre Penalty Shootout Of All Time

Sometimes it feels like fate is inevitable. But then there are times when even as you do the worst you could possibly do, things go your way. This happened in the Club America vs Queretaro penalty shootout in Copa MX.

Copa MX is underestimated by most. However, on occasion it delivers quite entertaining games. Sometimes this entertaining quality is not granted by the quality of the game but rather the opposite. This was the case when Club América hosted Querétaro in the Copa MX quarter finals.
