[GOLD CUP] Playing without five players, who have been suspended by the Mexican soccer federation (FMF) after they failed a drug test taken on May 21, Mexico went out and beat Cuba, 5-0, for its second win in two games at the Gold Cup.

Sinha, Francisco Rodriguez, Edgar Duenas, Christian Bermudez and Guillermo Ochoa are the five players who tested positive for taking the banned substance "Clembuterol."

Hector Gonzalez, the FMF's director of national teams, blamed the doping results on tainted meat at Mexico's High Performance Center where the team prepared for the Gold Cup.

Rodriguez and Ochoa started in the 5-0 win over El Salvador on Sunday.

The five players are headed to UCLA for more tests. Mexico has appealed to Concacaf to let it replace the five players.

Javier Hernandez had two goals for Mexico against Cuba to give him five goals in two games.

    Ric, cmon man. You and I are both fans of the US and El Tri. These reports and stories are from a source you and I both paid a lot of money to receive called "Soccer America". When you and I want info about the monumental and glorious win over CONCACAF powerhouse Cuba, we can go watch or read the thousand other sources that over cover the Mexican team. It was mentioned appropriately and the drug testing scandel was given the appropriate attention it needs in the forum which again is callled "Soccer America".

    Was Javier Aguirre spotted hanging around Ochoa's food?

    I hoe this rises a political question in the USA of how laws are so easily disregarded in Mexico and that USA benefits from financially. Wouldn't it have been nice for USA to beat Guadalupe that easy? That's a story right there. Oh no. It was all positive reviews for that 1-0 win. Good job USA. You're finally on the right track again. Sarcasm is golden.
