Last Minute Golazo Keeps Mexico in the Game
Although Team Mexico has not secured a ticket to Brazil 2014, they are still in the game thanks to Raúl Jiménez’s beautiful chilena in the last minutes of Friday night’s game against Panama. Mexico beat Panama 2-1.
La Selección Mexicana is now in fourth place in CONCACAF with 11 points. They play regional rival Costa Rica on Tuesday in the last game of this Hexagonal round. As things stand, Mexico has to win or tie against the Ticos for the opportunity to play New Zealand for a ticket to Brazil.
Nothing is certain for El Tri. Their backline needs to be tightened up and they should never let Chicharito kick a penalty again. But they did play aggressively and have a chance if they continue to do so. ¡Sí, se puede!
