How will Mexico line up vs. Honduras?


Osorio's first real Mexico test


Five Liguilla-bound prospects to keep an eye on for Mexico

Jose Van Rankin
Twenty-two-ear-old Jose Van Rankin has impressed with league leaders Pumas and looks to make his mark on the national team.

The 2015 Apertura Liguilla is here, and except for those who are supporters of the eight teams who made the playoffs, watching the squads compete for the championship is bittersweet for Liga MX fans. Yet at the same time, the pressure-filled postseason is the ideal time to take stock of young players who have yet to earn a cap for Mexico but who are determined to contribute.

Here are five playoff-bound prospects all El Tri fans should keep an eye on as the next wave of future. In keeping with...

Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez enjoying the form of his life; Vela frozen out?

Javier Hernandez has been in the form of his career since swapping Manchester United for Bayer Leverkusen in the summer.

There is no doubt that Javier Hernandez is currently the best Mexican striker in the game. In his past seven games, Hernandez has scored an impressive 10 goals for Bayer Leverkusen. The Bundesliga star has been on fire with his goal scoring and has already set several records along the way.

With Hernandez looking like the most in-form player El Tri has, here are a few of the recent highs and lows from Mexico's finest:

Mexico must nurture qualities of Jesus Corona and Jurgen Damm

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall breaks down they keys to Mexico's 2-0 CONCACAF WC qualifying victory over Honduras.

They are human beings, but it would be worthwhile for Mexican soccer to "brand" them from the outset with a barcode and a label that clearly specifies: "For external use only."

The first steps on the road to Russia 2018 have made it clear that the future of the Mexican national soccer team lies in the feet and the inspiration of the young players: Jesus "El Tecatito" Corona (22 years of age) and Jurgen Damm (23) emerged just when Mexico most needed them and proved decisive in what appeared to be...

'Tecatito' Corona, Jurgen Damm repay Juan Carlos Osorio's faith in youth

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall breaks down they keys to Mexico's 2-0 CONCACAF WC qualifying victory over Honduras.

After 45 minutes against Honduras on Tuesday, Mexico appeared stuck at 0-0. The blistering sun, the 90-degree weather and the significant humidity in San Pedro Sula made El Tri look justifiably sluggish in the muggy Honduran environment. With Los Catrachos coming out aggressive and scrappy, a goal seemed unlikely for either side.

That's not to say that the visiting team was the victim in this situation. Mexico responded with their own combative play, leading to an incessant amount of fouls and flops...

Mexico's World Cup campaign so far: The positives and negatives

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall breaks down they keys to Mexico's 2-0 CONCACAF WC qualifying victory over Honduras.

SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras -- With six points out of six on the board and a tricky trip to Honduras out of the way, it has been a bright start for Mexico in its qualification campaign for Russia 2018. The team is yet to concede a goal over Tuesday's 2-0 win over Honduras and the 3-0 home opener against El Salvador last Friday and it is all smiles in El Tri.

Here is what we've learned so far.

The Good

Juan Carlos Osorio's appointment was highly questioned in the Mexican media. Many fans simply didn't...

Osorio deserves credit for Mexico's strong start to World Cup qualifying

ESPN FC's Tom Marshall breaks down they keys to Mexico's 2-0 CONCACAF WC qualifying victory over Honduras.

Now that Mexico has claimed a 2-0 victory over Honduras in World Cup qualifying, winning in San Pedro Sula for the first time in 50 years, it's time to give credit where it is due: to the players and coaching staff who together accomplished this feat.

Mexico's new coach Juan Carlos Osorio -- despite his neat, clipped appearance -- might remind more than a few people of Doc Brown, the fictional scientist who built a time machine out of a DeLorean in the classic film "Back to the Future". Osorio...
