I am happy to see "el matador" back with "el tri".
He brings alot of experience and heart.
I wasn't impressed by the young strikers that played in the last few games. They should mature and improve and be ready for the next world cup. Hernandez is only 31 and he and his fellow strikers will be able to hit the back of the net. Something i havnt seen much in the last few months.
This is pretty much the team that is going to the cup give or take a couple players.

I think the team is basically complete with these players. Luis Hernandez has been playing well for America. He's all heart and determination add that his previous WC experience I believe he is a good addition.

My starting 11 would be

...................................Oscar Perez

.........R. Marquez, M. Vidrio and F. Gabriel de Anda

Jesus Arellano.......................................... .....Ramon Morales

..........J. Rodriguez, G. Torrado and A. Garcia Aspe

......................................C. Blanco

...........................F. Palencia and J. Borguetti

Caballero for Arellano for the first 2 games of the WC due to suspension. Luna for Rodriguez for the same reason in the first game.

International Preview: Bulgaria vs. Mexico
Bulgaria - Mexico | News Archive

El Vasco is getting serious now (AP)
04/16/2002. This friendly match will be held in the Meadowlands of East Rutherford, New Jersey, just across from New York City on Wednesday at 19:00 eastern standard time.

TEAM NEWS AND FORMGUIDE
Bulgaria: FIFA Rank: 52
At the moment Bulgaria is just looking for potential players for next year's European Championship qualifications. The Bulgarians failed to qualify for this year World Cup, after finishing 3rd in Group 3 of the UEFA's World Cup Qualifying. However in their last match against Mexico in Morelia, Mexico, the Bulgarians pulled off a stunning 2-0 victory against El Tri on Jan. 24, 2001. Unfortunately a month ago Bulgaria played against Ecuador in the Giants Stadium and was soundly beaten 3-0. They hope to avoid the same result against the Aztec Warriors.

Bulgarian Roster:
Goalkeepers: Zdravko Zdravkov (FC Istanbulspor)

Defenders: Rossen Kirilov (Adanaspor), Predrag Pazin (Beijing Guo'an), Yordan Gospodinov (FK Ventspils), Galin Ivanov (CSKA Sofia), Ivailo Petkov (Istanbulspor AS), Danail Bachkov (FC Lokomotiv Plovdiv), Georgi Petrov (FC Lokomotiv Plovdiv)

Midfielders: Biser Ivanov (Levski Sofia), Todor Yanchev (CSKA Sofia), Georgi Peev (Dinamo Kiev), Stilian Petrov (Celtic)

Forwards: Marian Hristov (#1FC Kaiserslautern), Daniel Trendafilov (FC Lokomotiv Plovdiv), Georgi Ivanov (Levski Sofia), Svetoslav Todorov (Portsmouth FC), Zoran Jankovic (Dalian Shide), Martin Petrov (FC Wolsburg)

Mexico: FIFA Rank: 8
It is crunch time for El Tricolor. Javier "El Vasco" Aguirre wants to tighten the screws on the Azteca Machine, before the trip to Japan in May. El Vasco has called the best that Mexico has to offer, as El Tri travels down Broadway. Mexico will be trying to avoid embarrassments, like earlier this month with a lost the USA. El Vasco has Luis Hernandez, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, and Francisco Palencia fighting for a spot on the front for Japan. Also, Jorge Campos is trying to get back on the squad. Both Campos and Hernandez haven't played for El Tri, ever since El Vasco has taken over. They will be looking for a chance to impress.

Mexico Roster:
Goalkeepers: Óscar Pérez (CDSC Cruz Azul), Jorge Campos (Pumas UNAM), Oswaldo Sánchez (UA de Guadalajara)

Defenders: Manuel Vidrio (Pachuca CF), Francisco Gabriel de Anda (Pachuca CF), Melvin Brown (CDSC Cruz Azul), Alberto Rodríguez (Pachuca CF), Rafael Márquez (AS Monaco FC), Salvador Carmona (CD Toluca)

Midfielders: Gabriel Caballero (Pachuca CF), Sigifredo Mercado (CF Atlas), Germán Villa (Club América), Alberto García Aspe (Puebla FC), Joahan Rodríguez (Club Santos Laguna), Ramón Morales (UA de Guadalajara), Braulio Luna (CID Necaxa), Gerardo Torrado (Sevilla FC), Rafael García (CD Toluca)

Forwards: Jesús Arellano (CF Monterrey), Juan Francisco Palencia (RCD Espanyol), Cuauhtémoc Blanco (Real Valladolid), Luis Hernández (Club América), Jared Borgetti (Club Santos Laguna)

My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...


Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

Mexico 1, Bulgaria 0

April 17, 2002


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Francisco Gabriel scored in the 90th minute , just three minutes after entering the game, as Mexico beat Bulgaria 1-0 in an exhibition game Wednesday night.

Gabriel, who replaced Mexican captain Rafael Marquez, scored off Braulio Luna's header following Ramon Morales' corner kick.

Gotta be honest

Palencia and Luis looked good, Blanco needs another couple of games while Marquez is a great player...well deserved, BUlgarians were quick but not quick enough.

Yep....the score doesnt reflect how superior Mexico was...Then again friendlies are no barometer of how good or bad you might be...
