  1. I love in the photo Ale Diaz is square dancing as he’s still looking to the linesman to see if Granados was onside. That’s how quick the kid took his shot, first time.

    Even if they lose to Nigeria, a second place finish is a testament to the youth system in place in Mexico that identifies and develops young talent en masse.
