Mexico facing depth challenges for Gold Cup, Copa America double

Carlos Vela will be one of many Mexico players that participate in either the Gold Cup or Copa America this summer.

Just how deep does Mexico's footballing talent run? This summer's Copa America and Gold Cup doubleheader will be the litmus test, with two squads to be named and more than 40 players involved in total.

El Tri head coach Miguel "Piojo" Herrera is adamant that he has enough depth at his disposal to achieve the goals set by the Mexican federation on Tuesday and reach the semifinals of June's Copa America in Chile and then win the Gold Cup in July in the United States.

"Of course we have the material...

Corona, Layun leading the way for Mexicans abroad

Jesus Corona continues to impress in the Eredivisie with Twente.
Jesus Corona continues to impress in the Eredivisie with Twente.

One lesson for Mexicans playing abroad this season is that a move to a major club won't exactly mean immediate success.

This month, Raul Jimenez has had little time with Atletico Madrid, while Javier Hernandez has become irrelevant at Real Madrid. While there are exceptions, like Hector Herrera in Porto, it appears as though much of the recent progress abroad has arrived from players in midlevel clubs or smaller leagues.

Jesus Corona has thrived in the Dutch Eredivisie with Twente and Miguel...

Chicharito would be best served by leaving Real Madrid

Chicharito Hernandez has made just one appearance for Real Madrid since the new year.
Chicharito Hernandez has made just one appearance for Real Madrid since the new year.

The hoopla at Real Madrid over the recent signing of Norwegian starlet Martin Odegaard might have brought a pang of woe for another striker on the squad, Mexico's Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez. Not so long ago, the forward enjoyed the celebratory buzz as one of Manchester United's most promising young players. Now that fanfare has died away, ahead lies an uncertain future for Hernandez.

Though only 26, at what should be the prime of his athletic career, Hernandez has been reduced to playing...

Exploring the reasons behind Miguel Layun's bold decision to join Watford

Mexico international Miguel Layun is making a big gamble in his decision to join second division side Watford but it could pay off if the club gets promoted into the Premier League.
 

On Jan 9, Miguel Layun signed a four-and-a-half year deal for an undisclosed fee with Watford FC, a team that plays in the Football League Championship, England's second division.

Layun's decision to join Watford was surprising for several reasons. For example, let's take into consideration the strange way that the transfer was facilitated.

Last December, Layun joined La Liga's Granada on a five-year deal but was then sent on loan to Watford shortly after the announcement. Earlier this month,...

Mexicans Abroad - Jonathan dos Santos finding his feet at Villarreal

After a long layoff, Jonathan dos Santos is starting to impress at Villarreal.

For about six months now, Jonathan dos Santos has quietly been making progress in Villarreal. He joined Villarreal -- and his older brother Giovani -- this past summer after years of rare appearances for Barcelona.

The 24-year-old had recently recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury, and there were serious doubts over whether Jonathan could have an impact with his new club. While other players such as Carlos Vela and Javier Hernandez made headlines, Jonathan slowly gained a starting...

Mexico U-20s build human bike as part of goal celebration

The CONCACAF Under-20 Championship group-stage match between Mexico and Cuba was already off to a flying start with three goals in the first 10 minutes of play.

However, that was easily topped in the 19th minute when Alex Diaz's goal gave Mexico a 3-1 lead. Following the score, El Tri made themselves early candidates for best goal celebration of the year by assembling a human bicycle, as shown below.

For creativity,...
