Mexico National Team

James asks…

A ? About USA National Soccer Team Win over Mexico February 07?

I have two questions about the win over Mexico 2-0 on February 8, 2007. First, it seemed like the US attack got better and the chances increased when Landon Donovan moved back to midfield, why doesn’t he play back there all the time and feed balls up to the strikers? He is obiously the best crosser on the team and this seems pretty normal as aren’t Ronhaldino, Zidane etc midfielders. Second, did anyone see the Mexican goalie try to trip the US player after the second goal was in the back of the net? What reprocussions may come of this?

Tijuana answers:

There will be no repercussions to his actions unless the USSF presses the issue to FIFA. If the outcome were different and the US had lost or that goal would not have gone in, more would be made of it. We’ll take the high road and be gracious winners rather than sore losers, which is unfortunate for Mexico (my peeps). They need to face the music and make changes to their training and team tactics so they can beat us. If they can not beat us, it will make it less likely to ever get to a WC final or semifinal.
As far as Donovan being a stiker, he needs to play center mida dn let EJ move up. Donovan playes a better mid in my eyes and we can see him for the brilliant player he used to be. He needs to step up and control more of the game. Now if he can only be consistant. If he can’t be consistant then he will eventually lose the starting position to Cooper, EJ or someone else.
Overall the team played well with a few poor moments. The defense was awesome. Conrad played great. Bornstien will win a starting position by 2010. Bring in Gooch to center the backs with Bocanegra along with Conrad and Ricko Clark. Move Bornstein to defensive mid. They will be fine in the tournaments this summer. Props to Bradly and Nowak.

Paul asks…

Any predictions of what the score would be if Mexico played the real Germany national team?

A Mexicanista bragged about beating a helpless Canada and talked about Mexico dominating the Maple Leaf. He believes Mexico is fears all over the World however if Mexico played the following Germany team I think he would not be talking so freely.
Goal Keeper: Manuel Neuer. Sub. Rene Adler

Defenders: Philip Lahm, Howedes, Boateng, Holger Badstuber. Subs: Schmelzer, Heiko Westermann,

Mid field: Thomas Mueller, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil, Marco Reus, Ilkay Gundogan, subs :Sami Khedira, Toni Kroos.

Strikers: Mario Gomez. Subs: Miroslav Klose, Mario Goetze ( false 9).
@ Toby your are right; there are 14 players on the German national team that come from Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Deutscher Mannschaft!!!

Tijuana answers:

Yeah, Germany would dominate. It was seen in the Champions League, both German teams (Bayern Munich and Bor. Dortmund) absolutely destroyed the teams they played, beating the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid with record defeats. Germany at the moment has the best Football in the world in my opinion. However, we must remember that Bayern Munich and Bor. Dortmund don’t have full German teams, so my view may be wrong. Nonetheless, Germany would still dominate.

Mandy asks…

how likes Mexico national football team?

i love it

Tijuana answers:

I can’t say they are the best team in the land…. They are far from it. I can say that perhaps, this group of players are the best Mexico has ever had. Just imagine if they also had a young Hugo Sanchez, a young Enrique Borja, a young Alberto Garcia Aspe. Their world points would go way higher.
