Good I am happy he is. The USMNT doesn't need second rate talent from the Mexican ranks.

Mexico is a train wreck right now.

One thing I have come to the conclusion about Mexico is that their depth is clearly not as good as some have thought or talked about.

But Mexico will still get to the knock out rounds of this tournament because Canada is awful.

It was an over hyper lets be completely honest here. It was an overhype because they won Olympics and 3rd place in U20... We all know that doesnt always translate to national team. Once it gets to the big boys Mexico Struggles and we saw it again today

On another note Panama looks like they could definitely make it to the final.

Looking forward to the US destroying Belize on Tuesday. When you prod a vipers nest expect those vipers to strike out early and often. The comments made by the Belize federations president about wanting to humiliate the US is prodding the vipers nest, and genrally not wise comments to make. I give him props for trying to get his troops fired up, but in this case his comments are unwise.

Honestly I think mexicos b team could bow out in the semifinals. I think they are now destined for second place in their group. Panama will beat martinique and can tie canada in the final game or reverse the games and they are assured first place. Mexico if they can get out of the quartefinals will likely face panama again in the semifinals. I think Panama can beat them twice because panama pressing and strategic fouling disrupted mexicos rythm a lot. Also the commentators were saying mexico didnt play a good game but I actually think that mexicos b team is around equal to a little worse then panamas a minus team.

Panama with their good tactics of pressing along with allowing their central defensive midfielder space and pacey wingers is simply a matchup nightmare for mexicos team. Also this bodes well for the United States playing the press game because mexico wont know what hit them if they are constantly pressed rather then semi press. My biggest worry for the United States is still our slow centerbacks because mexico forwards would have a huge speed advantage. Am I the only that is extremly happy that cheapo looks unfireable at this point. The mexican federation has stuck with him so long I dont think they will get rid of him even if the gold cup isnt won by mexico.

I do not understand Fifa rankings and their rules that well but if the US wins the Gold Cup and we pass Mexico in the Fifa rankings...what is the main benefit

Panama sent a strong veteran team to the GC, unlike the US and Mexico. Panama's victory over Mexico's JV is not a fluke. They can go far in the knockout round with the team they sent this year. I'd expect Costa Rica to do well also, given the makeup of the team.

Canada can pack their bags. They can't beat Mexico or Panama.

Not too long ago, it took a last minute strike from Holden to tie lowly Haiti. For countries like Belize and Cuba, they'll play the underdog well. Don't expect either to roll over for the US.

That's totally blasphemous and unreal. When was the last time somebody besides USA and Mex made the final, 13 years? And whens the last time both didn't make it? NEVER?

US strong is squad, and is Mexico. THey still looked decently dangerous in yesterdays let down against panama. And its not like El Tri is at risk of being eliminated as 2 third place teams advance.

Saying both USA and Mexico wont make the gold cup final is like saying an incumbent president wont get his parties nomination.
Yes it could happen, but will it happen? probably not

Only way this happens is if Mexico fniishes 3rd in their group and qualify as one of 2 best 3rd places.

Blasphemous? lol The Mexicans seem to be in turmoil right now and it is realistic Panama or T&T could knock them out.

As for the US, there is enough experience in the squad to reach the finals, but Honduras or Costa Rica are a threat. Honduras has beaten our full team recently and Costa Rica still holds a grudge after the snow game.

Of course, if Martinique do the improbable and beat Mexico, we could face then in the quarters if we win our group.
