Aguirre: Another 5-0 win improbable

[MEXICO-USA] U.S. players arrived Tuesday in Mexico City to chants of "cinco, cinco, cinco" from Mexican fans, in reference to El Tri's 5-0 win over the USA in the Gold Cup final, but Mexico coach Javier Aguirre says a repeat of that result is very improbable.

"They'll use players, all new players," Aguirre said Tuesday. "We may field a similar team, but to score five goals -- in quick succession like we did -- is very improbable."

The only Gold Cup holdover who might start Wednesday is forward Brian Ching.

Aguirre likes the position his team is in, though.

"When we play against them," he added, "they take us up north, to the cold, where there are few Mexicans,. Now we're back home with our fans, and 100 percent Mexican flags in the stands -- our people, our passion and conditions that suit us."
