Mexican tournament: ¿Clean slate?
Shameful wound 0-7 National Team against Chile in the recent Copa America still open and suppurating, Mexican fans is about to start a new tournament home more, where you do not know what his reaction from the stands after the dismal role played by the squad led by Colombian Juan Carlos Osorio in US lands.
And the whack was not less: such a precipitous fall for the Aztec representative in official matches he not lived since 2004, when the America's Cup that year it swept Brazil 4-0 on Peruvian soil; and later, in the previous decade, there was a 0-4 to the United States in the Gold Cup 1995. Before that, He would have to go back to 1978, at the World Cup that year held in Argentina, It is victimized mercilessly 0-6 to West Germany (current monarch), In cordoba.
Because in the years 80, in Rome, when Italy also -then world champion shook him by 5-0, in February 1984, or in the next decade, when Brazil (with stars like Romario, "Bebeto", “Dunga”, among others, in alignment) it crushed by 5-0 Friendship Cup in the USA in 1992, He was treated in friendlies.
From there, It should be sent to the years 50 Y 60 the last century, when football in Mexico was "in diapers" and there was no international experience, so they lived in the deceitfulness of easy and almost always convincing victories over rivals CONCACAF zone. For example, Tri was in the "Seleção" its worst "coco", because the faces were first in the World Cup in Brazil 1950, rout of 4-0 for local, Y 4 years later, for Switzerland 1954 dose increased to 5-0. Seven years later, in 1961, a preparatory match, England at the legendary "Wembley" swept 8-0 Tricolor.
Looked like, well, already infamous times of golizas for our footballing representative were far behind, unfortunate events lost in the mists of time, as can be seen in this brief account. But the ghosts of failure again, just as the common amateur regained faith in their selected and beginning to feel that "now it" was time to live with the "big" world football.
Two youth titles in the Under-17 and Olympic gold medal in London 2012 They endured the idea. But the ridicule of Chile, with individual attitudes criticism, no reaction or on the court or on the bench, without visible leaders, They returned us to reality.
Since week before the meeting with Red (Rear Cup champion) They had pointed out details that should prepare psychologically for a possible elimination, but not for this catastrophe that finally presented; but few gave importance.
One, Osorio pernicious habit of changing their lineup from game to game, without taking into account overall results and personal performance; in friendly games could be a good strategy to keep trying and knowing footballers, but in such a short competition which was played in the United States this summer, It was a real suicide. of, the Tricolor but marched undefeated Colombian coach in front and even until arrival at the continental tournament without receiving a goal against, it was evident that many times luck or mistakes rival had tipped the balance in his favor.
Waking up to the Chileans was cruel ... And he won a Gray Uruguay, virtually disappointed in the contest; then Jamaica, who missed clear chances against Mexican frame, and that they could have scored change 2-0 one end in -fácilmente- 2-2. And closing the group stage, he overcame an awkward Venezuela, who took the lead and was able to settle the game before Mexico, thanks to an individual action, got the equalizer.
Waking up to the Chileans was cruel ... So, What comes to the national football? The oven is not for buns, and after giving a "green light" to the infamous "08/10 rule", which will reduce to the extent of the precariousness of already scarce spaces for Mexican footballers, theme will address soon in this space.
It will then observe the reaction of the Aztec public from the stands, because while national leaders have crowed over the past year has picked up the stadium attendance in matches Liga MX, they say the quality of football that have been offered an issue that should be put in doubtfully, could be a marked absenteeism scenarios country, as a sign of annoyance at the continental ridiculous that was.
Just remember that in the season 1978-79, after the "papelazo" Argentina in the World, a stage where the fans distrusted the show offered and expressed his anger was experienced not attending stadiums, even though that year was hired America- -by the Brazilian José Dirceu Guimaraes, named third best player of the Cup.
For now, He has started the Apertura 2016 and the opening day count just left a 17 goals, very poor for a "world class tournament" (As he bragged in his presentation ago 4 years) and the excess of foreign players is even offensive.
There will be attentive to the figures of attendance in the stadiums of the 1st. Division of the country, because according to "World Football", a year ago, Liga MX was rated as one of the 5 with the best average attendance worldwide.
Does the amateur decide to wipe the slate clean and give a new opportunity to ingratiate, even at club level, the Mexican Football bocabajeado?
