Quick El Tri headlines: March 7, 2013

Mexico had six players on the regional U-20 “Team of the tournament” (FIFA)


  • Mexico will play in the 2013 Toulon Tournament. They are in group B with France, Portugal, and Nigeria. Mexico is the defending champion.
  • 2013 U-17 CONCACAF WCQ will begin on April 7th for El Tri. Mexico is in group D with Cuba and Honduras.
  • Tijuana continues to make history. They defeated Millionarios (Colombia) on the road, as well as a major victory today over world champion Corinthians (Brazil) in the Copa Libertadores. Los Xolos remain undefeated (3 wins, 0 draws, 0 losses) in the tournament.
  • Toluca failed to make an impact, as they tied Barcelona (Ecuador) 1-1. They were defeated in the previous game to Nacional (Uruguay) at home.
  • Mexico was thought to meet in Houston against Turkey. However, the game was not never confirmed. Mexico will now face Nigeria in Houston on May 31st. The match will be more interesting, because both teams will be in the 2013 Confederations cup.
  • ESPN has announced they will show select Liga MX games in english.
  • Richard Sánchez, Francisco Flores, Bernardo Hernandez, Hedgardo Marín, Antonio Briseño, and Jose Carlos Van Rankin were added to the 2013 CONCACAF U-20 “Team of the tournament.” Jésus Corona was not added, although he was easily Mexico’s most explosive player. Captain, Antonio Briseño, was named MVP of the tournament.

Vamos Mexico!

  1. When Is the Toulon Tournament?

    I was surprised Jesus Corona was not in the Concacaf “Team of the Tournament.”

  2. Haha! Looks like Antonio Briseño is getting used to lifting a lot of silverware with Mexico, huh? Let’s hope Mexico start taking care of business as usual in the WCQ.

    1. I hope we can put any doubts to bed this month. It feels like its been an eternity since the Jamaica game…I want to see El Tri back on the field already.
