Brazil vs. Mexico in 2012 Olympics Football Final

Thursday, August 9th, 2012

seth-edward-oneal.jpg

It’s on.

Brazil will take on Mexico in the final of the Under-23 football tournament in the 2012 London Olympic Games at Wembley on Saturday after winning their semi-final clashes on Tuesday.

Brazil held off a determined performance from South Korea to emerge 3-0 winners at Old Trafford. South Korea looked the better side at the start of both halves, but Brazil edged in front seven minutes before the break with a low Romulo drive after a quick break.

Leandro Damiao then put Brazil in complete control as he completed a brace with goals in the 57th and 64th minutes.

Mexico had earlier come from behind to defeat Japan 3-1 in the day’s other semi-final at Wembley. With Japan having taken an early lead through a fine strike from Yuki Otsu, Mexico responded in fine style, equalizing before the break as lively forward Marco Fabian headed home a Giovani dos Santos corner after a Jorge Enriquez flick-on.

Mexico further imposed themselves on the game in the second-half and were rewarded with two more fine goals. With 25 minutes remaining, Oribe Peralta capitalised on a Japanese defensive error to win possession and curl a fine effort into the top-corner.

Mexico looked to be playing out the win comfortably, but added extra gloss to the victory in the final-minute when Javier Cortes fired home after a powerful run down the right.

2010 FIFA World Cup Preview: Mexico

seth-edward-oneal.jpgCan the El Tri continue to ride on the momentum that carried them where they are right now?

Mexico qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup by finishing second in CONCACAF qualifying, just one point behind the United States. They were undefeated at home but inconsistent on the road. They won impressively in Costa Rica 3-0 but fell in Honduras 1-3.

In the Gold Cup, Mexico was impressive as they advanced rather easily through the group stage and defeated Haiti 4-0 in the second round. In the semifinal, they drew with a tough Costa Rican team but advanced on penalties. In a memorable final, Mexico crushed the host United States 5-0. Though the United States did not field their best players, it was still an impressive victory.

Coming to the World Cup in South Africa, Mexico is the eight-time and current CONCACAF Gold Cup champions. They also won a FIFA Confederations Cup in 1999. The Mexican team is currently ranked No.17 in the world. They have a long, storied soccer tradition and have the nickname ”El Tri.”

One of the key players team Mexico has is Giovani dos Santos. Dos Santos is an intriguing player that has been hyped for years, and his first World Cup may be the time he finally breaks out as a legitimate star. Reared in Barcelona’s youth division, he played for the senior team at the tender age of 18.

Mexico is coached by Javier Aguirre, who has been a calming presence for the team. Mexico can attack from the wings and from set pieces and can be quite dangerous offensively. The 5-3-2 formation has some tradition in Mexico and Aguirre has…

This Mexican won’t play for Mexico in 2007 Gold Cup

Sunday, June 10th, 2007

No no no, the Mexican wasn’t caught trying to cross some border…

Mexican league scoring champion Juan Carlos Cacho was surprisingly dropped from the national team roster for the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Yep, I don’t understand that and with them being Mexicans, I don’t expect to anytime soon.

Juan Carlos Cacho had 11 goals to help Pachuca win the Clausura title. He shares the Mexican league scoring title with Omar Bravo of Chivas. Despite Cacho’s success on the field for Pachuca, national team manager Hugo Sanchez selected his name as one of five he will cut from his preliminary roster.

Joining Juan Carlos Cacho in Sanchez’ cut list is Cacho’s Pachuca teammate Jaime Correa, Gonzalo Pineda and Luis Michel of Chivas, and Israel Castro of Pumas.

Bravo will lead the offense to the United States along with Adolfo ”Bofo” Bautista – Bravo’s teammate at Chivas, America’s Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Francisco Fonseca from Tigres and Jared Borgetti from Cruz Azul.

Barcelona defender Rafael Marquez was included on the roster and would join the team at the semifinal stage after the conclusion of the 2007 Spanish football season.

Hugo Sanchez’ roster will look like this.

Goalkeepers: Oswaldo Sanchez (Santos), Guillermo Ochoa (America) y Jose Corona (Tecos).

Defenders: Jonny Magallon (Guadalajara), Francisco Rodriguez…

New Mexico State Hate Muslims in College Football?

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Yup, just when the new NCAA College Football season kicks off, three Muslims are suing New Mexico State University.

The Muslims, three former players of the New Mexico State Aggies, are suing the school, as well as New Mexico State Aggies head coach Hal Humme, claiming that they were dismissed from the team because of their religion.

The three Muslims, Mu’Ammar Ali and Anthony and Vincent Thompson, were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union as they filed their case against New Mexico State University.

The suit alleges the school of religious discrimination and violations of the athlete’s right to freely exercise their religion. Also, it claims that one Hal Humme, a man hired by New Mexico State University in January of 2005, has put up a ”religious brotherhood” of sorts and singled out Muslim athletes on the school’s NCAA College Football team.

”Universities are supposed to be places of evolved thinking and reason, not of base intolerance and bigotry,” said Peter Simonson, executive director of ACLU New Mexico.

”They are supposed to rise above the knee-jerk prejudices that sometimes…”

NFL Betting: The Arizona Cardinals Are Favored In Mexico and Heads Shake

Thursday, September 29th, 2005

warner_72155.jpgFor Sunday night’s scintilating match-up between the lowly San Francisco 49ers and the scorching Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City, the Cardinals are GIVING three points to the 49ers. Okay, okay…we’re as confused by this line as Covers’ Stephen Nover who asks the all important question "WHAAA?":

Can someone please explain why the Cardinals are favored here? Maybe someone should inform bookmakers this game is at a neutral site, not in Arizona. The 49ers will be flying through two time zones. Arizona has double revenge, losing twice in overtime to San Francisco last season.

Tom Brady knows the drill heading to Super Bowl XLVI

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Probably because he’s been in quite a lot of them.

Tom Brady glides through media day heading to Super Bowl XLVI as though he’s a contestant on one of those rigged game shows from the early days of television. He knows what the questions are going to be. He knows the answers. He plays along. He wins the giant jackpot.

And so it was yesterday morning at Lucas Oil Stadium as veteran Patriots quarterback Tom Brady took part in his fifth Super Bowl media day. He was funny if your presence required him to be funny, humble when you needed him to be humble.

Need a comment about our armed services? Madonna? Haircuts? You came to the right place. And if you were from Brazil, from Mexico, from Canada, from Germany, Tom Brady was able to say something that made it seem like he grew up there. What’s that, a Japanese reporter wanted him to give a shout-out to his show’s host back home in Toyko?

”I’ve been to Tokyo,” the New England Patriots franchise quarterback said…

Even WBC President thinks Pacquiao robbed Marquez

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Who wouldn’t?

Well, okay, people who blindly follow Manny Pacquiao and buy into whatever the fuck he says doesn’t. But in case you haven’t been following my own little space here on the internet, I don’t really give a fuck about them and I don’t see why I should start.

In any case, yeah, World Boxing Council (WBC) President Don Jose Sulaiman is convinced that Juan Manuel Marquez of Mexico was cheated of victory last Saturday against that insignificant third world moron, Manny Pacquiao.

In case you missed Pacquiao – Marquez III, Juan Manuel Marquez was in control of his bout against Pacquiao, but for some strange and shady reason, the duck-fetus-eating maggot managed to get the win and retain the World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight title belt with a majority decision. Go figure.

Boxing observers and analysts, REAL ones and not those retarded boxing observers and analysts from the Philippines who can’t see past Pacquiao’s smoke and mirrors, have criticized and debated over Pacquiao’s victory, with many saying Marquez deserved the win and rightfully so.

As far as the WBC President is concerned, it was an injustice that Marquez lost…
