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.

Mexico to start Jesus Corona in goal over Guillermo Ochoa against Ecuador

Jesus Corona, right, will start Mexico's first friendly against Ecuador on Saturday.

LOS ANGELES -- Jesus Corona will start in goal for Mexico against Ecuador on Saturday ahead of World Cup star Guillermo Ochoa, El Tri coach Miguel Herrera confirmed on Friday.

"It is important to see 'Chuy' [Corona] in goal tomorrow," Herrera said in a news conference at Los Angeles Memorial Colesium. "Then it will be Memo [Ochoa] on Tuesday [against Paraguay in Kansas City, Missouri]. Both are doing very well and have kept up their level."

The Mexico coach had said earlier in the week that he was...

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...

Ventura Alvarado says he's committed to United States over Mexico

ESPN FC's Doug McIntyre weighs in on the United States' 3-2 loss to Denmark on Wednesday.

ZURICH -- Ventura Alvarado's 10-minute cameo against Denmark didn't tie him to the U.S. team, but the Mexican-American defender told ESPN FC on Friday that he's committed to representing the United States.

Wednesday's 3-2 loss in Aarhus was only a friendly, and Alvarado, a starter with Liga MX juggernaut Club America, remains eligible to play for Mexico. He'd been on the fence about which national team to choose as recently as last month, a position that drew criticism from former Yanks striker Herculez...
