You guys are playing BOLIVIA, would you calm down? geez
WTF do you care?
We mexicans are proud to root for our team whether it's Spain or Venezuela. Doesn't matter.
wow, not trying to troll at all. Honestly I'm not a fan of WC teams playing s**tty teams as preparation for the WC, I've seen so many of my friends for the last two weeks drooling at the idea of blowing out Bolivia and I'd be like "So, is Bolivia. What does it matter?" One of them replied that it was important to beat up on teams you're supposed to beat up on.
I'm sorry, y'all are trying to be elite, how about testing players and strategies and all of that against better competition? (not necessarily WC teams, but at least teams that were contending for a spot, not the team that finished second to last in CONMEBOL qualifying)
next week when mostly everyone will be playing friendlies, Ivory Coast will play South Korea, Germany will play Argentina, USA will play Netherlands, Italy v Cameroon, France v Spain ... those games serve much better as preparation IMO. You guys will play New Zealand (representing the only confederation that doesn't have direct qualifying to the WC) I mean, c'mon.
I actually want Mexico to break through, you guys have endured some of the most heart-breaking results I've seen in my life, but I don't see games like tonight's (I'll give you a break about New Zealand since they're WC bound) help your team by much.
