Soccer Monday: Your Running Commentary

Copa America 2015 Mexico Team Photo


Mexico’s Copa America campaign didn’t start as planned with a draw vs. Bolivia, and it’ll have an even tougher contest tonight, as hosts Chile greet El Tri on Monday.

Chile are coming off of a convincing 2-0 win vs. Ecuador in its first group match, and Alexis Sanchez and crew will hope to cause havoc against Mexico.

Meanwhile, Group A and Group B of the FIFA Women’s World Cup kick off their third and final group matches today. While Canada currently tops its group, a loss could see the hosts disappointingly fall out of the tournament.

Germany will also hope to fend off Thailand from making a surprise result, while Norway will go all out offensive against Cote D’Ivoire in order to try and lead Group B by end of the night.

  1. simply the best tournament after the WC, Mexico’s B/C team ties against Chile in Chile, Venezuela beats Colombia, Bolivia beats Ecuador, Paraguay ties against Argentina and Peru gives Brazil a giant scare, pure craziness.

  2. Wow, what can I say? World Cup in Brazil, they tie Brazil 0-0. Copa America in Chile, with B team, they tie the super favorite locals 3-3. That’s where I want to see USMNT. Last time we sent a B team to Copa America we got spanked about by everybody.

    • this is also why MLS keeps losing against Liga MX in the CCL, we don’t have enough top talent in the league outside of our 23 men squad, Mexico is able to build three different ones (Gold Cup, Copa America and PanAmerican games) and stay competitive, same with the top south american teams.

  3. Got to love Copa America. 90 minutes of all out attacking football with some of he most skilled players in the world.
    The Mexico-Chile game it’s just awesome.

  4. This is a Mexico B team, so I don’t see them getting a result (tie or win) against Chile today. Will they make it through? I am not sure, but would not be surprised if they did. This is a team that knows how to play tournaments, valiantly and intelligently.

    • El,

      I thought you were talking this squad up confirming the Gold Cup and region was theirs to lose a few days ago. Now this is their B team?

      • I hope you are not contending this is not El Tri B. I know you know better than that. Don’t let me down like slowleftarm did.

      • Nope, and I’m not pretending to know more about this Mexican side than you. My question was sincere: I thought you were talking this team up just a few days ago?

        Your latest post seems to be in stark contrast to the original sentiments. Did something change in their squad or are they fielding a different squad than what will appear at the Gold Cup? I haven’t watched any of the Copa America.

      • Ohhh come on. You and everybody here knows this is their B team. El Tri A is going to the Gold Cup. That’s the roster I posted a few days ago making the point it seems like a very very strong team.

      • Trust me – I have zero intricate knowledge of Mexico’s teams and have no clue what’s considered A, B, or C.

        Every year I’ve watched soccer they’re incredibly overrated on paper regardless if it’s A, B or C.

    • Yes, they valiantly and intelligently backed into the World Cup with Graham Zusi’s header saving their a$$es at the last second.
