Mexico must move on from World Cup 2014 woe to shine at Gold Cup

The Arjen Robben penalty versus Mexico can now be found in piñata form.
Arjen Robben falls in the penalty area and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar stepped up to send Mexico crashing out of the World Cup in Brazil.

It was a heartbreaking moment that went down in Mexico soccer history -- and something El Tri are struggling to get over.

Exactly one year on from that penalty incident on June 29 at the World Cup in Fortaleza, the slow-motion replay of Arjen Robben winning the spot-kick that sent Mexico out of the tournament for the sixth consecutive time at the round-of-16 stage is still as vivid as it was the morning after.

Mexico's fight back vs. Costa Rica overshadows the troubles of El Tri

ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe speaks with Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez to discuss his side's 2-2 draw against Costa Rica.

Mexico's 2-2 friendly draw against Costa Rica is the classic case of the half-empty or half-full perspective.

On the positive side, El Tri rallied from two goals down to draw even, getting goals from two key players in Giovani Dos Santos and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. It's crucial to increase the confidence of top performers in the lead-up to any important tournament. Both goals were well taken, with Dos Santos making the most of a tricky dribbling run before angling the ball past goalkeeper...

Mexico's strong second half vs. Costa Rica gives Herrera tactical guidance

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down Mexico's 2-2 draw with Costa Rica, where Mexico came back from 2-0 down to tie in the second half.

ORLANDO, Florida -- Miguel Herrera said he drew some solid conclusions from Saturday's 2-2 draw with Costa Rica, aside from the evaluation that was so obvious to everyone watching: Mexico were bad in the first half and good in the second.

The Mexico coach was at pains to stress that fielding the exciting trio of Carlos Vela, Giovani Dos Santos and Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez in the first 45 minutes was an experiment, and admitted after El Tri came into the break 2-0 down that it hadn't worked.

"Honestly,...

Gio dos Santos and Javier Hernandez inspire Mexico after dreadful first half

Mexico came back from behind after Javier Hernandez equaled the lead in second half, as Mexico played to a 2-2 draw against Costa Rica in Orlando.

A loss for Mexico appeared likely after the first 45 minutes, as Costa Rica easily controlled possession and had plenty of space to roam in the middle of the pitch. With El Tri's defense looking particularly vulnerable, los Ticos had no trouble collecting two goals in the opening half.

After halftime, Mexico manager Miguel Herrera's change to a 4-4-2 formation had immediate results for the squad, which scored twice early in the second half and was by far the better side in the latter stages of the...

In a tale of two halves, Mexico salvage a draw against Costa Rica

Mexico came back from behind after Javier Hernandez equaled the lead in second half, as Mexico played to a 2-2 draw against Costa Rica in Orlando.
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno breaks down Mexico's 2-2 draw with Costa Rica, where Mexico came back from 2-0 down to tie in the second half.

ORLANDO -- Mexico came back from 2-0 down at halftime to tie Costa Rica 2-2 on Saturday in El Tri's first preparation game for next month's Gold Cup.

Javier Hernandez netted the equalizer in the 55th minute with a header just two minutes after Giovani Dos Santos had finished to pull Mexico within a goal of Costa Rica.

Los Ticos took the lead through David Ramirez in the fourth and doubled it in the 36th, when Miguel Layun turned the ball into his own net.

Here are our three takes on the match:

Comparing Miguel Herrera's Gold Cup expectations to Jurgen Klinsmann's

ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe and Tom Marshall preview the upcoming friendly between Mexico and Costa Rica, and what fans can look forward to in the Gold Cup for Mexico.

Mexico coach Miguel Herrera, winless with El Tri in the past five matches, is facing a mountain of criticism from his own country. He failed to lead Mexico to any redemption in this year's Copa America and will now have to claim the Gold Cup trophy in order to win back the affection of fans across Mexico.

For years, the U.S. and Mexico have traded off Gold Cup titles like twin siblings who begrudgingly share the same car. After Mexico's stunning 2011 comeback win, the US reclaimed the title in 2013,...
