MEXICO WINS DESPITE BEING SHORT HANDED
Wed, 15 Jun 2011 03:37 PM EDT

Mexico is doing so well at football that I personally do not think they need a complete team. Mexico has managed to win despite being somewhat short after five of their players were tested positive for using performance enhancing drugs, however Mexico still managed to cruise into the quarterfinals of the Gold cup still remaining largely undefeated after they 4-1 victory over Costa Rica yesterday night. Andres Guardado managed to score twice with Rafael Marquez as well as Pablo Barrera managing to add a goal each for the now defending champions who remain unbeaten at the Gold Cup series since they lost back in 2007 to USA.

The 14 goals that Mexico has managed to score is the most that any team has scored in this tournament, they just conceded just a one 69th minute strike by Marco Urena yesterday night. Ricardo Lavolpe the coach for Costa Rica speaking via an interpreter said “Too simple.” El Tri will go up against a Group B or a Group C team in the quarterfinals on Saturday at East Rutherford, NJ. Costa Rica comes in second for Group B. Football betting lines

De la Torre said “The main objective is to win the Gold Cup,” “This group very much knows what it needs to do to represent Mexico. … Whatever situation is presented, the team knows the only way to get where we need to go is on the field.”

Many people thought that Costa Rica would be Mexico’s toughest opponent at group play. They have managed to make it to the quarterfinals during the previous five Gold Cups and Lavolpe was the coach for Mexico in the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Lavolpe said “It was like a splash of cold water,” “We couldn’t react.”

Guardado managed to score again just heading into the 26th minute, he hit a rather tricky and neat shot from under one of the defenders and over through the goalkeeper Keylor Naves from the 6 yard box. Barrera managed to close up Mexico’s offence when the game headed into the 38th minute in a very smooth go and give in front of the goal. Football lines

The score would have turned out to be even more for Mexico with a 21-9 edge in the shots on the goal.

De la Torre said “It’s true we played a good match,” “But there is always room for improvement.”
