Yesterday

Colo:

Since I do not have a great ability or desire to follow Pablo Ramirez and his play-by-play, do you have a general directory of what players rated how vs. Argentina? Matter of fact do you know of any on-line or print news evaluations for all of Copa America, like they do in Europe?

My question is really directed towards your thoughts of (1) Rafael Marquez and (2) Jesus "Cabrito" Arrellano. I get replies that Marquez may not even make it back onto Barca's team next year. Through this Copa tournament, though, I have seen him as a great back liner instilling calm and confidence into the Tri, always making a thoughtful deliberate pass out of trouble as if the other team's thrust was no big deal. I have not been able to determine where Arrellano sat in La Volpe's scheme of things, but have not seen a great deal of him in recent qualifiers. This kills me. I think he showed against Uruguay (second half) and then yesterday that he is like an adrenilin shot when inserted into the lineup. I know there are a whole lot of guys deserving a lot of credit yesterday, but I felt that Cabrito kept Argentina's back line constantly off balance with his threats to run it in by himself and then his ability to find targets with his through passes on the run. I have felt for two world cups that this guy is right up there with the top players and he only showed this again yesterday. I cannot see for the life of me that he would not be instrumental come Germany and 2006. My final hope would be that it not be a decision of either Arrellano or "Paco" I love his game also and though they differ in style, I think a first team could support having both on the pitch together.

Don't have. How do I get?

Mexico demands and Lavolpe delivers



CHICLAYO, Peru, July 11 (Reuters) - Mexico coach Ricardo Lavolpe, fed up with being criticised for his team's performances in friendlies, says he has so far delivered everything that his adopted country has demanded of him.

Saturday's 1-0 win over Argentina, Lavolpe's homeland, virtually guaranteed a quarter-final place in the Copa America and was by far their best performance under his stewardship.

Mexico's form in friendly matches, which Lavolpe has used to experiment with younger players, has been poor and resulted in defeats by Uruguay, Peru, El Salvador and arch-rivals United States, as well as a dismal goalless draw against Iceland.

Competitive games have been a different story.

Mexico co-hosted and won the CONCACAF Gold Cup last year, beating Brazil's Olympic team twice and keeping a clean sheet in every game.

They smashed 18 goals past Dominica in their two-legged preliminary World Cup qualifier last month and Lavolpe also made sure the under-23 team reached the Athens Olympics.

"I accepted the responsibility one and a half years ago," said Lavolpe, whose reign began with a friendly defeat against his homeland.

"They demanded the Gold Cup, I gave it to them. They demanded we qualify for the Olympics, I did that as well. They demanded this result (against Argentina), I have given it to them.

"I know it is the results that matter. It is results, results, results and nothing else. Maybe this one will allow me to work in a bit more peace.

"Mexican football has improved a lot and today we are good enough to play anyone," he said.

Lavolpe, reserve goalkeeper in Argentina's victorious 1978 World Cup squad, casually told reporters on Thursday he might resign in a year's time because of the criticism, before saying the following day his comments had been misinterpreted.

The 52-year-old said he wants to stop coaching professional teams when he leaves his current position and concentrate instead on juniors and grass roots.

If he were to resign next year, he could leave Mexico managerless at a crucial stage of the World Cup qualifiers, which are almost certain to be followed by the tournament itself in Germany in 2006.
