Mexico's Miguel Herrera thinking short and long term with squad choices

A wax figure of Mexican coach Miguel Herrera was unveiled on Wednesday.
Did Miguel Herrera pick Jesus Corona, right, for the friendly vs. Ecuador because he's the first-choice for this summer's major competitions?

There was a slight, but noticeable change in the air at Mexico coach Miguel Herrera's pregame press conference for the Ecuador match. In the lead-up to the World Cup this past summer, Herrera comfortably wore the mantle of team savior, salvaging the qualifying campaign of El Tri. Ultimately, however, the team exited the world's biggest international tournament in the frustratingly familiar position of the round of 16.

Now Herrera is in charge of a new cycle and the pressure is building. More is...

Miguel Herrera's Mexico starting XI vs. Ecuador a Gold Cup preview

In addition to the Gold Cup, Miguel Herrera's Mexico will also be competing this summer in the Copa America.
Miguel Herrera's starting XI vs. Ecuador will likely be a precursor to his first-choice Gold Cup team this summer.

LOS ANGELES -- The main takeaway from Miguel Herrera's news conference ahead of the friendly against Ecuador on Saturday is that his Gold Cup "A" team is increasingly set.

It would be a surprise if there was a major deviation between this starting XI and the one that takes to the field for Mexico's Gold Cup opener on July 9 against Cuba in Chicago.

Miguel Herrera must reclaim CONCACAF for Mexico

Mexico last claimed the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2011, defeating the United States 4-2 in the final.
Mexico last claimed the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2011, defeating the United States 4-2 in the final.

LOS ANGELES -- Let's put an end to all this confusion and to the Utopian idea that Mexico is searching for two national teams for the summer. Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera's first and only assignment is to regain supremacy in the CONCACAF region.

It can all be summed up by one simple fact: Herrera has never managed an official game in Mexico's footballing region. He ensured the country's passage to the World Cup in Brazil against New Zealand in a playoff scenario governed by FIFA rather than...

Mexico's defense is one of the five things to watch vs. Ecuador

A wax figure of Mexican coach Miguel Herrera was unveiled on Wednesday.
Goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is usually reliable for Mexico, but with limited playing time for his club in Malaga, could rustiness be a factor?

About 90,000 fans are expected at the sold-out Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday night for the friendly between Mexico and Ecuador -- and most of those in attendance will be supporting El Tri.

Mexico manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera will have plenty of support but little time to fine-tune the squad before the Copa America and Gold Cup tournaments this summer. Including Saturday's match, Herrera has only three matches for experimenting before the Copa America tournament, which begins in June.

Guillermo Ochoa and Jesus Corona goalkeeper rivalry in full effect

Guillermo Ochoa, left, and Jesus Corona are mired in a intense battle for first-choice keeper for Miguel Herrera and Mexico.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- This is not a broken record. The sequel to whether Cruz Azul's Jesus Corona or Malaga's Guillermo Ochoa is Mexico's best goalkeeper is happening again.

It's one of the big decisions for Mexico coach Miguel Herrera ahead of Saturday's friendly against Ecuador. Herrera has gotten a good look at both shot stoppers as his El Tri squad have managed a rare five days of training together here ahead of their first match of 2015.

Mexico's Javier Hernandez looking to end his four-month-long goal drought

Javier Hernandez has been restricted to just 217 minutes worth of game time this season for Real Madrid.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez's goal drought has run longer than the Mexico national team's four-month gap between matches.

The 26-year-old striker's last goal for club or country came in Amsterdam on Nov. 12 against a strong Dutch side, which Mexico dispatched 3-1. Before that, it was in a Real Madrid shirt on Oct. 29 in the Copa del Rey against lowly Cornella. On Saturday, when Mexico takes on Ecuador in L.A. Memorial Coliseum, it will be exactly 150 days since Hernandez hit the back of the net...
