[MEXICO-DENMARK] A day after its dismal 0-0 draw with Canada, the USA could take heart that Mexico didn't do much better in its Hexagonal tuneup on Wednesday at University of Phoenix Stadium. Missing just four European-based players, the Tri had to settle for a 1-1 tie with a Danish "B" team.

Marco Fabian scored his first goal for Mexico from the penalty spot in the 68th minute, but 19-year-old Andreas Cornelius evened the scored with a spot kick of his own 16 minutes later. The game ended with the Arizona crowd jeering the Tri.

The goal came after defender Jorge Torres took Cornelius down from behind in the penalty area.

Cornelius had a hat trick in the Danes' 4-0 win over Canada on Saturday.

    I honestly don't know how the US can take heart to Mexico's 1 -1 finish with Denmark, Mexico DOMINATED the game and Denmark was very lucky that the score wasn't 3 or 4 to 0, the PK denmark got was from a very weak challenge but still good that the ref was being fair! The US will probably not make it to the 2014 World Cup unless Klinnsman uses the same group of players he used when they faced Mexico last yrs. after the Olympics!

    Mexico didnt do much better?? This exact same team killed Canada 4-0. This is the exact same Canada that USA tied 0-0. Denmark fielded the best players from Danish league as Mexico fielded all Mexico league players. Aquino just recieved a contract to play in Spain but has not played or practiced there so he still counts as a Mexico league player for this game. MLS players would have gotten killed by Denmark or Mexico teams that played yesterday. Come on Soccer America, say it like it is. Be realistic. The Denmark coach hinted that this new young B team will be better than their A team. Was this not mostly Mexico's B team?? Dinigris, Aquino usually have come off the bench before,Corona & Peralta have gotten the call after winning Gold as of late. Peralta also comes in off bench. The only starters after that are Masa Rodriguez and Salcido. I don't know but that doesnt sound like an A team to me. It sounds more like a very deep pool of players that USA clearly does not have. Far from it. Making these silly comparisons are not helping our USMNT. How about we hold them accountable to produce a better pool with simply stating the truth??

    If USA fields that team in Gold Cup it's going to be a short tourney for them. Mexico's B team will win it which should be the final wake up call. I wonder what you'll say then.

    Having watch both games, although Mexico tied, any clear observer can see how Mexico dominated possession 65%, created chances and confirmed why Mexico won the U-17 world cup and Olympics, and also shows why the US did not. The only fair criticism I would have against Mexico's play is exactly what Commentator Alejandro Moreno suggested, too many 5 yard passes without pulling the trigger.

    Cisco, you should write these columns. Clearly Mexico had the most chances on goal. What;s frustrating is they should have twice the chances by simply taking a first touch to goal and not passing up on taking shots. Mexico also took 3rd in U20 W.C. and won PanAmerican Olympics, Toulon Tourney.

    The anti-American, anti-anything but hispanic sentiment continually expressed by Luis and his paranoid delusions about everyone is out to get hispanics and his inability to allow anyone to ever criticize hispanics/Mexico or even write about them is despicable. Luis lives in America, was born here but hates all races except hispanics and hates the MLS, hates the USMNT and hopes they lose and is a citizen and worse he infects our youth soccer culture and the real shame is he thinks his expertise is based solely on his ethnicity and never forget he is a pathological liar.

    Mr. Hayes, from what I read, Mr. Arreola is giving his opinion, and is backing up his position with a bit of fact. He's spot-on to say Mexico dominated with less than it's A-squad (no Dos Santos, no Hernandez, no Guardado). If I read Mr. Arreola right, he's simply stating that it is silly for SA to try to prop up the USMNT by belittling Mexico's side. The headlines in Mexico, however, will not likely express consolation for their team's draw in the USMNT's poor performance the previous night. NO race-baiting there. Unfortunately, the truth is our team now finds itself fighting it out for SECOND w/ Canada, NOT first w/ Mexico in CONCACAF as in past decades. The slide may continue if the leadership doesn't improve, and I don't necessarily mean Herr Klinsmann...

    Sorry FB but that is why I come on here to warn others about Luis that may not know what he is all about.....This is what he is all about..."In General, Black People are better Basketball Players, White people are Better Golfers and Hispanics are better Soccer Players in USA" and "Hey, if Usa wont appreciate us then lets keep going to our nother countries. It will be funny to watch this jeep blowing up in teir face."..........He is a race-baiter, he just does not have the courage to say so anymore..................And he is a proven pathological liar - let me give you an example - I checked the Canada website and did a google search - there is no 4-0 defeat by Mexico over Canada - the last time the two countries met was in Olympic qualifying and the Mexico squad had exactly 3 players from that team that started in this game and they won 3-1......Number one rule: NEVER BELIEVE ANYTHING LUIS SAYS...........and never forget he never played the game and is just a Daddy coach whose only 'expertise' comes from his ethnicity............All the writer was trying to say is that the US playing poorly can be somewhat less depressing when your main arch rival does not get a result as well BUT poor victim Luis has to tun it into race and blame the writer for picking on is pathetic......FB - DON'T BUY IT.

    Actually, he was referring to Denmark shellacking Canada 4-0, thus suggesting Denmark is a more formidable foe that Mexico met, than the CAnada that drew w/ USMNT. I'm with you that race baiting has no place in these gentleman/gentlelady blogs. Just taking his current statements face value, I tend to agree that SA is typically too eager to cut our national team slack. No idea why the author of the story felt compelled to open a story about El Tricolor's splitting points with Denmark by referring to the USMNT in the opening line. A bit too much cheerleader there, not enough serous journalist, IMHO. Nevertheless, I'll be on board to call someone out with you if they reach for that race card BS. Seems all too popular a device these days.

    FB, don't waste your time with explaining common sense to Gordon. As you can see he is not too bright and confuses himself to an ignorant rant. These are the very same opinions that I post that Gordon finds offensive and as race baiting. Good to see how there are people that can see the trees for the forest. I call as it is. If any have a problem with it, I can respect it, as long as they are logical.

    Good catch - thanks FB but the above definitely still stands.

    More lies from Luis - he wrote "No more will I acknowledge your nonsense. Last time. I promise." At least when I make a mistake I own it, Luis claims his lies are 'no big deal.' He has no morals and please believe me FB, it is all about race with this guy - he is just too much of a coward to say what he really means - I think he got offended when so many other hispanics came on here and called him out....and talk about "not too bright" - this guy thinks Mexico is in South America.

    Your misplaced comment is not a big deal either, brother, and I don't think you lied. I just think all that hatred you have bottled up makes you read and say things that, well, aren't too bright.

    commented on: February 1, 2013 at 1:58 p.m.
    I guess Luis means things like Mexico is part of South America - "We look to European coaching when we have great Mexican Coaches just next door or Brazilian, Argentinian in the same Co tinent.".......and "They are at least 85% hispanics on every team.".....and "Very few in USA know much about soccer"......."No more will I acknowledge your nonsense. Last time. I promise."......A liar and a moron and this is who coaches our youth?

    Yes exactly.

    Well at least he agrees he is a liar and a moron so that is a step in the right direction.
