So I am listening to Soccer Morning today, and Eric Gomez of Goal.com and Mexican beat writer revealed that Mexico is going to go after Mexican-Americans harder and with more purpose. Mexico is going to try to undercut MLS and US soccer by going after 14, 15, 16 year old Mexican-Americans by throwing the kitchen sink at these players. Here is the 3 part strategy:

1. Promise these young talented players a fast track to Mexican Club first teams
2. Promise them a fast track in getting in front of European scouts
3. And if they meet certain points in their development then getting fast tracked to the National team by age 20.

Mexico is furious that the US was the team to keep them from being knocked out of the WC.

They want revenge against the US, and they are going to put a lot of resources and money in order to convince Mexican-Americans to come to Mexico and play for Mexican national teams.

This is why I am a bit concerned about Arriola. He is definitely one of those players Mexico is going to go after, and if the US ignores him then a promising young talented player could be swayed by Mexico. Remember he already has a Mexican passport.

Klinsmann and the USSF better be coming up with a plan to counter Mexico's aggressiveness towards Mexican-Americans. The USSF cannot afford to ignore talented Mexican-Americans.

Mexico is not the only country looking to go after talented dual nationals. Bosnia and Herzegovina have a plan to go after Bosnian-Americans as well.

USSF better protect their own house.

Mexico has such an inferiority complex, why would they be want revenge against the US? It is their cess pool they have to clean up. Trying to buy players is a desperate ploy lol.

We will get a lot of clout if we can perform well at the next world cup. I think the US is starting to be perceived as stronger than Mexico. Klinsmann has also proven that he will stick by players and work hard to provide them with opportunities. This issue should be addressed for sure but I think the US has a lot more to offer.

Thanks for the clarity in your initial explanation 2tone. I find it interesting that the clubs are promising European football when Liga MX is not traditionally a league that ships players to Europe. Aside from about 8 players, everyone who has played for El Tri in this WC cycle is based domestically.

Competition is great thing though, because it forces MLS and USSF to step their level up to keep these players. I highly doubt that MLS, right as they are positioning themselves to grow tremendously, will sit back on their laurels and take this hit to the future of our domestic on-field product. At least I hope not...

I think what most of us have learned from the recent dual national media exposure is that players more often than not will want to play for the best country. As long as we stay above Mexico players will lean towards us and hold out hope for a US call up over an early cap tying to Mexico
