    I hope that Mexico can figure out what to do with Chicharito. He doesn't fit their style, and doesn't get the service he gets with Manchester United. If he did get that service he would score a ton of goals in the Hex. What will they do, Bench Chicharito and play Dos Santos or find another plan of attack? The way it is looking now, they haven't a clue as to what their attacking plan is. Who provides service? Who gets up to win the first ball and knocks it off to Hernandez? We all know that he is a crafty one touch finisher inside the box. He is not capable of breaking people down one v one and creating his own shot. Dos Santos is capable of creating on his own, but he doesn't sniff out the loose balls and get to the posts like Hernandez. Maybe I'm missing somebody who can make a difference. How do they solve this problem?

    I don't get it, they need creative players and Gio comes in with about 15 minutes left??? Time for Jose de La Torre to do whatever is neccesary to bring back Vela into the Mexican setup. Mexican crowd way off on dumping stuff on Costa Rican players, that should of been left for the mexican players.

    It looks like this coach will get the boot if he cant figure out how to use all this talent. He is playing too defensive. The Mexican team does play at the opponents level. Thats not a good thing. Vela should be in there and Gio should be starting. Di Nigris fits more the style played than Chicharito. Extremely poor performance for such a team.

    Face it, they are small and get knocked off the ball too easy in the international game. Who cares what they figure out?? Hernandez is a goal poacher not a goal scorer, and FIFA should fine them big time for the conduct from the stands. Where is that daunting mexican team media when they should be condemning the treatment of their guests on the pitch. Embarassing!!

    Chris, my Hispanic friend, the Mexican media did condemn it. I doubt you are fluent in Spanish so how would you inow? Too small? You mean like Spain?? Lol. Actually, this one of the tallest Mexican sides ever. Goal Poacher? You mean like Altidore?? You should get a job with SA ??
