In the semis against Japan. Should be a good game. They are solid and are on a real fine form right now. Beat Mexico in a warmup game prior to the Games 2-1. They probably will be favored but it is anyones game. Brazil vs South Korea (the only team Mexico did not beat in group, 0-0) in the other semi. Thinking Brazil has to be heavily favored but anything can happen.
The game against Senegal was fun to watch if a bit nerve-racking during the last 25 min of regular time. Very big and physical team and both of their goals came in the air, one of Mexico's weaknesses. At the end of the day, it was that same size that led to their undoing in extra time. They were completely spent and made two very costly errors for the final score of 4-2.
Club America - Leon in the second leg of the play off final.
America 2-0 down from the first leg, the 105,000 capacity Azteca is rocking, America start like wild fire as expected with the great backing of the crowd, then Leon score out of nowhere to make it 3-0 on agg. Boselli of Wigan fame scores for them :howler: Has done well actually since he returned to "Americas" football.
Even if you don't rate the Mexican football league the spectacle here and the atmosphere is quite something.
And America will still play like mad dogs until the final whistle to get back into this. They have come back from the dead before in Azteca.
