New coach, another loss for Mexico

[HEXAGONAL]Javier Aguirre tried to reassure Mexico's nervous supporters after his second stint as the Tri's national team coach began with a 2-1 loss at El Salvador.

Former D.C. United player Eliseo Quintanilla's late penalty handed Mexico its fourth straight World Cup qualifying loss in the road and left it in fifth place in the Hexagonal.

Only Trinidad & Tobago's 3-2 loss at home to leader Costa Rica kept Mexico from sinking to last place.

Aguirre's second stint didn't begin like his first one did when Mexico beat the USA, 1-0, eight years ago and started the Tri back on the road to recovery after opening with four points in its first five games.

A win over T&T on Wednesday would put Mexico, which has three points in four games, in better position at the halfway than it was eight years.

Mexico's only goal came on a penalty kick by the Chicago Fire's Cuauhtemoc Blanco, whom Aguirre brought out of international retirement.

Russell Latapy also lost his first 2009 Hexagonal game in charge of Trinidad & Tobago, whose chances of returning to the World Cup finals faded with the first home loss of the Hexagonal.

Horrendous defending was a major factor in the Bacolet goalfest.
