Pachuca's Omar Gonzalez: Coming from MLS to Liga MX was very difficult

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner is not in agreement with Theo Walcott over MLS closing in on the Premier League.

Pachuca defender Omar Gonzalez may have enjoyed a stellar start to life in Liga MX, but the jump up in level from MLS wasn't easy, according to the player.

"When I arrived I had to up my level a lot because coming from MLS to the Liga MX was very difficult," said the U.S. international, who moved from LA Galaxy to Pachuca last summer and won the Liga MX Clausura 2016 title in his first season.

"The [Mexican] league is very good, coming here is difficult and I think that I'm getting better as a player...

Liga MX Talking Points: What's the deal with the boring scoreless draws?

ESPN FC's Ernaldo Moritz and Tom Marshall discuss the importance of Chivas' crucial win over Monterrey.

Well, in two weeks of Liga MX Apertura 2016 action, we've seen a surprising five scoreless draws. Both Tigres and Cruz Azul have failed to score a single goal in their first two matches, the latter for the first time since the start of the "torneos cortos" in 1996.

ESPN Deportes' Rafa Ramos recently wrote that while the league has increased its spending ahead of the Apertura, it has so far failed to increase its value. Five scoreless draws in 18 games is a bit much.

Vancouver Whitecaps send Fabian Espindola to Necaxa

Houston and Vancouver played to a scoreless draw at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Fifteen-year-old Alphonso Davies made his MLS debut as Vancouver squandered a 2-1 halftime lead at home against Orlando City.

The Vancouver Whitecaps have sent striker Fabian Espindola to Liga MX side Necaxa on Wednesday, just one week after acquiring him for general allocation money from D.C. United in a trade that sent Patrick Mullins to United from New York City FC.

Espindola is seventh among active MLS goalscorers with 64 regular-season goals over 10 seasons in the league. He has 73 goals and 42 assists in 252 appearances in all competitions.

Abella hoping Mexico Olympic success propels U23s to senior national team

Mexico will hope to defend their Olympic title they won so memorably in London four years ago.

Mexican soccer is living in the post-"siete cero" era after suffering a crushing 7-0 defeat to Chile in the Copa America Centenario. It's a time of reflection and re-evaluation.

In the midst of this process comes the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, where Mexico will kick off on Aug. 4 against Germany. There is naturally pressure on the young members of the Mexico Olympic squad charged with defending the gold obtained four years ago at London 2012; another failure would provoke an additional...

Warming Up

Alejandro Palacios, GK, Pumas

Why he's here: During Saturday's dull 0-0 draw between Cruz Azul and Pumas, Palacios provided some much-needed excitement in the match. With some excellent saves, the 35-year-old emerged as the best player for the visiting side....
