The FC crew reacts to the violence at the Tigres v Veracruz match, and the issue it raises for security around the league.

The clock is quickly ticking for numerous Mexican players. With slightly over a month left until FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago, El Tri manager Juan Carlos Osorio will soon need to hone down his best roster options.

While the likes of Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez, Guillermo Ochoa and other Mexicans in Europe are close to guaranteeing their spots, others back in Liga MX will need to continue to fight for a much-desired opportunity.

Keeping this in mind, let's...

With a Champions League match set against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Chicharito's recent goal-scoring form could not have arrived at a better moment. As for his national...

Although the matches against Costa Rica and Trinidad & Tobago are over a month away, Osorio will soon need to decide who his best options are for the national team. With limited opportunities to shine, every game for those in Liga MX and abroad will prove to be highly significant in the coming...

Rafa Marquez remains Mexico's go-to guy as El Tri icon targets World Cup

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

LAS VEGAS -- Mexico captain Rafa Marquez turns 38 on Feb. 13. The defender's national team career passed the 20-year milestone for his country last Sunday and he is eager to become only the third player to ever play in five World Cups.

More importantly for the manager, several backup and fringe players were on display for the national team. With a busy year set for Mexico -- which includes World Cup qualifying, Gold Cup and Confederations Cup matches -- Osorio will need to analyze and utilize several options for El Tri.

Looking ahead, Mexico...
