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...

Miguel Herrera has plenty to ponder after Mexico's win over Ecuador

Mexico were victorious over Ecuador in their international friendly, as Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez's first half goal proved the difference.

LOS ANGELES -- Six out of ten. That's what Mexico's performance and 1-0 win over Ecuador would get as a grade.

There were positive elements, the primary one being that El Tri secured victory in its first match of 2015, but there were also areas for concern.

Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez was a bright spot. The on-loan Real Madrid striker took his goal with aplomb in the 14th minute, showing absolutely no sign of rustiness from sitting on the bench for the La Liga giant. But it wasn't just his goal....

Chicharito Hernandez and Jesus Corona lead Mexico over Ecuador

Mexico's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez spoke to ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe following his side's international friendly win over Ecuador, and noted the importance of team development in these types of matches.

Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera will no doubt be encouraged in general by what he observed in Mexico's 1-0 friendly victory over Ecuador in Los Angeles, but there are some elements that will remind him there is still much for the team to improve.

With two tournaments coming up that require different rosters in short order, though, Herrera has some tough choices to make. Others should be easier. Here are three things to take away from the Ecuador game.

1. Maybe the bench is fine for Chicharito...
