Club America must focus on the football amid centenario controversy

Club America defeated Club Tijuana 1-0 in its celebratory centennial match on Saturday.

Club America has been embroiled in controversy off the pitch during its centenario season, but what happens on the field remains the most important point. And there too, Las Aguilas have been found wanting. Ricardo La Volpe's team advanced to the semifinals of the Copa MX and is on track to secure a Liguilla spot, but it has yet to fully convince with its performances and depth.

Can America do it? Can Las Aguilas lift trophies by season's end and give their fans a fitting celebration as...

'Chicharito,' from baby-faced boy next door to superstar deserving of respect

ESPN FC's Ciro Procuna delivers the inaugural edition of Mexicans abroad, with Memo Ochoa and Javier Hernandez in the spotlight.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez knelt, prayed, crossed himself and charged at Tottenham Hotspur's defenders right from kickoff -- pressing from the start just as Bayer Leverkusen head coach Roger Schmidt had undoubtedly demanded.

Hernandez may not have scored on his 50th appearance for Bayer Leverkusen in their 0-0 Champions League draw against Spurs on Tuesday -- he did come agonizingly close -- but long gone are the days in which his ability to impact such games was questioned. 

You know what...

Mexico Hot List: Lozano lights up Liga MX, Herrera a shadow of former self

ESPN FC's Ciro Procuna delivers the inaugural edition of Mexicans abroad, with Memo Ochoa and Javier Hernandez in the spotlight.
Hirving 'Chucky' Lozano scored and provided an assist in Pachuca's 3-0 win over Santos Laguna on Saturday.

Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio has less than a month left to prepare for a highly anticipated game against the United States in the Hexagonal round of World Cup qualifying on Nov. 11. The Colombian coach must soon begin to select his best options for the national team next month.

With this in mind, let's take a look at some of the recent best and worst performances from noteworthy Mexican players at home and abroad.

Marco Fabian lighting up the Bundesliga, Porto's Herrera struggling

Carlo Ancelotti criticises Bayern Munich's attitude after the Bundesliga leaders were held by 10-man Eintracht.

At 27 years old, Marco Fabian is quite possibly in the best form of his career. At Eintracht Frankfurt he feels important, making him not only stand out in the team's attack but also in defensive responsibilities.

After five Bundesliga starts, Fabian has scored three goals and notched two assists. His display against Bayern Munich, who went to Commerzbank-Arena after leveling 1-1 versus FC Koln and falling 1-0 to Atletico Madrid in Champions League, was clinical.

Frankfurt were losing 2-1 to Bayern...

Marco Fabian awaits Eintracht Frankfurt's date with Bayern Munich, hoping to make his mark on the Bundesliga.

MEXICO -- Over the coming days, three Mexicans will face Germany's biggest club, Bayern Munich, to decide their immediate future at both domestic and continental level.

In the Bundesliga, Marco Fabian and his Eintracht Frankfurt side will have the opportunity to gauge their level, which has so far been good at the start of this season. After six games, they sit eighth in the table with 10 points following three wins, two defeats and a draw.

Fabian has a chance to attract widespread attention...

Dos Santos strengthens case for Mexico involvement vs. 'strong' U.S.

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall and Katia Castorena assess Giovani dos Santos' role in Mexico's crucial 1-0 victory over Panama.

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Two games, two wins. That's what Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio would have wanted from El Tri's friendlies against New Zealand last Saturday and Panama on Tuesday. And that's what he and Mexico fans got.

Neither game will live too long in our memories, but each served its purpose, even without usual starters Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Jesus "Tecatito" Corona, Hector Herrera, Hector Moreno, Miguel Layun and Andres Guardado -- all of whom were left back in Europe to rest up ahead...
