We talked if Mexico got hosed. How Canada is really happy to even go to a World Cup and more. 😀
Another episode in the books. We discuss the successful series vs the Canadian National Team. The upside of Tecatito, CH14, Lozano, as well as the downside of Marco Fabian. The controversy of the Pu*o chant is brought up yet again and will most likely be talked about in the future. No matter what FIFA or the FMF does, we may not see the end of this “yell” anytime soon. We finalize the show talking Jurgen Klinsman and a little bit of US youth soccer. Have a listen here on the site or on Itunes.
VANCOUVER, BC – It was a bit of a surprise to see Hirving “Chucky” Lozano in the starting line-up for Mexico in front of the largest crowd to ever see the men’s national team play at BC Place. Mexico coach, Juan Carlos Osorio deliberated up until the last minute.
Chucky or Marco Fabian?
Osorio went with Chucky, who took the field along with Jesus Corona and Javier Hernandez to make up Mexico’s line of attack. The move paid off as all three were able to find the back of the net in Mexico’s 3-0 victory over Canada. Lozano, in particular, was especially devastating. If it was not his speed, it was his ball control. If it wasn’t his darting runs, it was his defense. And when he dispossessed Canada late in the first half, all Javier Hernandez had to do was send the ball into space like a bucket of chum ready to be gobbled up by a lethal shark. Read more
