Ramos: Osorio's test will be team selection




Can Mexico reach the semifinals?


Mexico's projected XI vs. Chile


Faitelson: Mexico is not the favorite


Juan Carlos Osorio's biggest test will be Mexico team selection

One Nacion's John Sutcliffe and Tom Marshall discuss Juan Carlos Osorio's future and Chivas Guadalajara's new Mexican-American signing, Alejandro Zendejas.

CHICAGO -- Juan Carlos Osorio is still in charge of the Mexico national team. He submitted his resignation, according to Mexico Football Federation (FMF) general secretary Guillermo Cantu, but they reconciled. The agreement was rebuilt on the ruins of Mexico's 7-0 defeat against Chile.

In the midst of shameful defeat, Osorio is securing victories.

Osorio's small wins despite defeat

1. He was given a vote of confidence by the FMF over the players. Extremely unusual.

2. He was never told to compromise...

CONMEBOL way above CONCACAF at Copa America Centenario

The ESPN FC crew look ahead to the Copa America Centenario final, a rematch of last year's final that saw Chile defeat Argentina on penalties.

LOS ANGELES -- A major takeaway from this summer's Copa America Centenario is that CONMEBOL has put its excellence on display in comparison to the CONCACAF nations that took part. Argentina, Chile and Colombia clearly demonstrated the gap that exists between them and the United States, Mexico and Costa Rica, among others.

It's a question of quality, of players like Lionel Messi, Arturo Vidal and James Rodriguez. And just when we thought the gap between the two confederations was narrowing, the...

For Juan Carlos Osorio's Mexico, the future is bright despite 7-0 Chile loss

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall and John Sutcliffe discuss Juan Carlos Osorio's plans to stay on as Mexico head coach and Alejandro Zendejas' reported move to Chivas.

What was clear after Mexico's 7-0 defeat to Chile was that Juan Carlos Osorio mismanaged his tactics. His team simply came up short time and again in its efforts to counter Chile's strong possession play.

In Mexico's starting XI against Chile, Osorio employed a 4-3-3 formation similar to the one he used vs. Venezuela, which worked well in the latter half of that match. Miguel Layun, Andres Guardado and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona were brilliant in the last 45 minutes against La Vinotinto, but Jesus...

Mexico, U.S. experience reality check in Copa America Centenario

ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe discusses Juan Carlos Osorio's future ahead of his meeting with the Mexican federation on Wednesday.

HOUSTON -- In the Copa America Centenario, the U.S. men's national team finished among the final four; Mexico's national team didn't. However when both teams played against their toughest opponents in the tournament -- Mexico vs. Chile in the quarterfinals and the U.S. vs. Argentina in the semifinals -- both teams failed significantly.

Argentina scored four goals against Jurgen Klinsmann's USMNT, while Chile tallied seven against Juan Carlos Osorio's El Tri. CONCACAFs main sides conceded 11 goals...

Osorio is the perfect scapegoat for Mexico players' shortcomings

The ESPN FC crew discuss Mexico's 7-0 defeat against Chile in the Copa America quarterfinals.

LOS ANGELES -- It's been more than 40 years since Mexican journalist Manuel Seyde coined the epic and painful phrase "Los Ratones Verdes" (The Green Mice) to describe the mentality of Mexican footballers. But as the years go by, it appears that his powerful statement continues to apply.

Yet another thing that persists to this day is our unrelenting desire to find scapegoats and hide the real culprits behind defeat. One thing conceals another, one name is laid out for the taking to save his accomplices.

Five takeaways from Mexico's Copa America campaign after Chile exit

One Nacion's John Sutcliffe and Rafael Ramos review Mexico's Copa America, that ended with a devastating 7-0 loss to Chile.

It was a bizarre Copa America Centenario for Mexico. El Tri's momentum had seen it being talked of as a potential winner, but that dream was ended in spectacular fashion after a 7-0 thrashing from reigning champions Chile on Saturday.

Here are five takeaways from the tournament from Mexico's perspective.

1) Reality check with much work ahead

There isn't a seven goal gulf in class between Mexico and Chile, as the coaches of both pointed out after the game, but there is a difference. Chile didn't...
