'Chicharito' may not be Mexico's best, but scoring record is worthy of praise

ESPN FC's Ciro Procuna examines the issues facing Juan Carlos Osorio and Mexico ahead of their WCQ match with Costa Rica.
Javier Hernandez is one goal shy of leveling Jared Borgetti's all-time Mexico scoring record (46). Can he do it vs. Costa Rica?

At age 28, Javier "El Chicharito" Hernandez could end the international break as the top scorer in the history of the Mexico national team, a statistic that may or may not be significant, but at the end of the day shows the kind of goal scorer and player with whom Mexican soccer has been blessed.

Scoring goals has never come easy for Mexican footballers. The fact that Hernandez has surpassed names such as Hugo Sanchez, Enrique Borja, Luis Hernandez, Luis Garcia, Carlos Hermosillo, Cuauhtemoc Blanco,...

Estadio Azteca used to be a fortress. Can El Tri light a new fire amid boos?

Estadio Azteca
Mexico has only ever lost twice at Estadio Azteca in World Cup qualifying, but the fortress' glory days are on the wane.

There is perhaps no more defining symbol of Mexican football on a global level than Estadio Azteca. Legends like Hugo Sanchez and Rafael Marquez would make their cases, but in terms of the status it holds in world football history, the stadium, "El Coloso de Santa Ursula," arguably trumps anything El Tri or any individual Mexican player has accomplished on the field.

Pele and Brazil defined a footballing era on the hallowed surface in 1970 and Diego Maradona was sanctified in the stadium in 1986,...

Jonathan dos Santos, Jurgen Damm among ones to watch for Mexico

Jonathan dos Santos, left, has the skills and intelligence to run Mexico's midfield.

When Mexico faces off against Costa Rica and Trinidad & Tobago in World Cup qualifiers this month, manager Juan Carlos Osorio will be without the likes of several key players. Due to injury problems and recent recoveries, the following stars will be absent: Hirving Lozano, Giovani dos Santos, Marco Fabian, Jesus "Tecatito" Corona, Javier Aquino and, most recently, Andres Guardado.

Although this list is a worrying one for El Tri supporters, Osorio fortunately has several other options who now have...

Who will be Mexico's next Cuauhtemoc Blanco? Could it be Carlos Vela?

Blanco gave his all for the Mexico national team and right now, they need a new talisman.

MEXICO CITY -- Estadio Azteca is Cuauhtemoc Blanco's home. He's the only Mexican footballer that has been able to bring down the stadium with his goals and assists. Not even Hugo Sanchez, Rafael Marquez or Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, all of whom have played for the best clubs in the world like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Manchester United, have been able to achieve it.

To find another Mexican player who could one day match Blanco's heart feels like an impossible task but in the modern era,...

Miguel Herrera's face full of cake as Xolos prank former Mexico boss

Having garnered a degree of infamy for his wild touchline gesticulations during a stint in charge of the Mexico national side, the ever-lively Miguel Herrera quit El Tri in 2015 to take over at Club Tijuana.

Indeed, after turning 49 last week, Herrera was treated to a birthday surprise by the Xolos squad, who presented their coach with a cake during a recent training session.

Of course, this being El Piojo we're talking about, there are no prizes on offer for guessing where said cake ended...

Who should Osorio start for Mexico vs. Costa Rica in World Cup qualifying?

Herculez Gomez reveals whether Mexico captain Rafa Marquez will figure into Juan Carlos Osorio's World Cup plans.

It's that time again! CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers are upon on, and with Mexico's 25-man squad for the games against Costa Rica (March 24, Estadio Azteca) and Trinidad and Tobago (March 28, Port of Spain) set, we asked our experts Tom Marshall, Nayib Moran and Cesar Hernandez who should feature in Juan Carlos Osorio's starting XI.

Tom Marshall

Mexico will likely line up in the same experimental 3-4-3 formation used in the friendly win over Iceland earlier this year.

Osorio's basic line of thinking is that when an opponent plays with two strikers, Mexico should play with three center-backs, always leaving a spare defender....
