Mali loss hits Mexican hopes

Mexico U-20s

Rafael Marquez returns to lead Miguel Herrera's Mexico against Peru

Rafael Marquez has won a remarkable 124 caps for Mexico.

On Tuesday evening, Mexico manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera announced his starting eleven for El Tri's friendly against Peru on Wednesday.

A quick look at the lineup makes one thing very clear: Herrera is still experimenting with his players. Several of the names from the 11 listed are arguably not Mexico's best options from the Copa America roster. Herrera has given an opportunity to many of these fringe players, who will likely have only Wednesday night to make a case for themselves.

Here are five...

Assessing Mexico's chances at the Copa America 2015 tournament

Rafa Marquez's experience should prove to be invaluable to a Mexico Copa America squad that is still finding its chemistry.

Mexico's last appearance in the Copa America in 2011 was close to being a farce, but there is reason to believe that this time around in Chile 2015 things will be different.

Four years ago, en route to host Argentina on a stopover in Ecuador, eight players were sent home due to indiscipline. Head coach Jose Manuel "Chepo" de la Torre also stood aside to let Luis Fernando Tena guide a mainly U-22s squad and the result was zero points and just one goal over the three group stage matches.


Mexico face do-or-die clash with Uruguay at the U20 World Cup

Hirving Lozano is one of the few Mexican players who played well against Mali.

Now, Mexico's under-20 squad has little-to-no room for mistakes.

After the 2-0 loss to Mali on Sunday, El Tri now sits in last place of Group D. This Wednesday at 4 p.m. in New Zealand -- Tuesday at 9 p.m. PT -- Mexico's youngsters will take on an Uruguayan side that is likely confident after the team's 1-0 victory over Serbia.

Another loss would mean Mexico is one step closer to an embarrassing early exit from the U20 World Cup. With an impressive roster for the tournament, El Tri was expected...

Mali stun Mexico, Uruguay beat Serbia; Portugal, Colombia also win

Diego Gama of Mexico is sent off by referee Felix Zwayer.

Ten-man Mali beat nine-man Mexico 2-0 in Group D at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in a match which became spiteful in the second half in Dunedin, New Zealand.

Mali was forced to defend for much of the first half and seemed likely to be further stretched when Hamidou Maiga was shown a red card in the 56th for a clumsy tackle on Hirving Lozano.

But Mexico went from being a man up to a man down in the space of two minutes, when Diego Gama was sent off for an off-the-ball incident in the 66th and Oscar...

Eduardo Herrera, Jesus Manuel Corona shine as Mexico crush Guatemala

Eduardo Herrera's double for Mexico secured a 3-0 win over Guatemala.

Mexico kicked off its busy summer schedule with a solid 3-0 win against Guatemala on Saturday night.

Manager Miguel "Piojo" Herrera fielded an experimental starting XI that at first struggled to communicate well on the pitch. El Tri dominated possession but lacked creativity and intensity in the final third against Guatemala. By halftime, Mexico had a slim 1-0 lead after 45 minutes of predictable movement forward.

The inclusion of players like Raul Jimenez and Jesus Manuel Corona in the second half...
