  • Chicharito was able to reach 35 total goals for Mexico after his three in the Confederations cup run. He is now only 11 goals behind leader Jared Borgetti.
  • Mexico’s U-20 fell to Greece after a late goal for a final of 1-2. Mexico will need to recuperate quickly as they face Paraguay in a crucial match on June 25h. The game will start at 11:00 A.M. ET.
  • It appears Chepo will remain Mexico’s coach until the Autumn. Apparently there is a must win ultimatum against Honduras. If unsuccessful  it will leave Mexico without a coach just days before playing the USA in Columbus.
  • The Dos Santos brothers have Euro clubs eyeing them. For Jonathan, Anderlecht in Belgium, and Fiorentina are two major names. As for Giovani, Valencia may be a possible destination out of second division Spain with Mallorca.
  • Mexico will be headed to the Gold cup in just two weeks. Their first match will be against Panama at the Rose Bowl (July 7). Be sure to check Pancho Villa’s Army to see if there is a watch-party near you!
  • Due to injury, Hugo Ayala and Fernando Arce will miss the Gold cup.

Vamos México!

The last of Jona and Vela?

Since his exclusion from the 2010 World cup, Mexico fans have been worried about Jona’s future with the squad (Terra.com.mx)


It seems that a trend has begun from the Mexico national team. It goes as follows; “Great performances will be accompanied by darker news.” It has been reported from ESPN Deportes that the FMF has had it with Jonathan Dos Santos and Carlos Vela. The report states that the two players have been asked to remain from being called to an El Tri side. A consensus from the FMF will put the two promising players off the pitch for Mexico any time soon.

Though many claim that the report may be overblown, and that the two do have a future with Mexico. However, many question marks will remain for a while with this recent explosive report. I personally want to stay positive for the two hopefuls, mainly because they have so much to offer. I can only hope to see the Dos Santos brothers take the pitch together by the Confederations cup. Yet, it may take time…because right now, Jona and Vela seem to be without a green (and or black) jersey for some time to come.
