Jonathan dos Santos, Raul Jimenez excel for Mexico against Paraguay

A goal after just three minutes from Mexico's Eduardo Herrera would be all El Tri would need to secure a 1-0 win over Paraguay at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mexico collected another narrow 1-0 win, this time against Paraguay, but the performance was a world of difference from the victory against Ecuador last Saturday.

On Tuesday night, El Tri came out flying against Paraguay and played with the kind of energy that would typically be seen in a World Cup Qualifying match. The motivation for a spot in one of Mexico's two summer squads was highly apparent with multiple fringe El Tri options playing at their very best.

Paraguay eventually gained possession...

Mexico will end its short tour of the United States on Tuesday with a friendly vs. Paraguay in Kansas City, Mo. (9 ET, ESPN2 and WatchESPN)

With Guillermo Ochoa, Miguel Layun, Hector Herrera, Andres Guardado, and Jesus "Tecatito" Corona all back in Europe, manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera will give chances to a number of backup players, just as he has done in the second game of recent past FIFA dates.

Duenas, Hernandez and Herrera prepare for first Mexico starts

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson discuss Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez's current situation at Real Madrid and predict what the future holds for the Mexico international.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jesus Duenas, Meliton Hernandez and Eduardo Herrera sat sheepishly alongside Mexico manager Miguel Herrera on Monday in the news conference ahead of Tuesday's friendly against Paraguay in Arrowhead Stadium.

They looked more like they were there to give evidence in court than a trio of players on the eve of arguably the biggest game of their careers, in which all will start. Alongside them, coach Herrera -- true to his persona -- cracked jokes and lightened the mood.

Perhaps the...

But no matter how Miguel Herrera exhorts his players to do this or that, the coach's true values will ultimately show through the composition of his rosters.

Due in part to injury and impending fatherhood for Guillermo Ochoa and Andres Guardado, the starting lineup Herrera announced the day before the match against Paraguay...

Ecuador friendly reveals the flaws in Mexico's ambitious side

It was Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez's goal and Jose de Jesus Corona's penalty save that saw Mexico past Ecuador in an end-to-end thriller of an international friendly.

I may have been too foolish with my aspirations for El Tri on Saturday night. My prediction for the match was a 3-1 win for Mexico over Ecuador, which I was honestly second-guessing, thinking that perhaps 4-1 would be more appropriate.

That's the problem with hopes and dreams, nobody ever fantasizes about something realistic, it's always a bit outlandish.

If you ask any Mexico fan about their predictions for Saturday's game, I highly doubt most would have gone for a narrow and conservative 1-0...
