Trap receives Mexico warning Monday 20 May, 2002

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti has warned Italy that Mexico could cause them problems in the 2002 World Cup.

The Rossoneri faced Italy’s group rivals in a friendly in Los Angeles and were defeated 2-1 by an outfit that Ancelotti rates highly.

"The Mexicans are an expert side that are well organised," he stated. "They are very good in defence and on the wings."

The former Juventus boss continued: "Italy definitely have the upper hand in the quality of players but they will need to remain focused for the whole 90 minutes."

Ancelotti’s warning came just days after the Azzurri put in a desperately disappointing show in Saturday’s 1-0 loss against the Czech Republic.

Milan also played Ecuador – another of Italy’s group rivals – earlier this month but Ancelotti maintained that Italy had little to fear. "The Azzurri are definitely much stronger than the South Americans," he commented.

The Azzurri will kick off their World Cup campaign on June 3 against Ecuador. They then face Croatia on June 8 before playing Mexico five days later.

The first post was clear, Mexico beat Milan 2-1...an Ancelotti is afflicted by diabetes and arteriosclerosis, so who heeds his bullcrap advice...

Ecuador is likely to give Italy more fits than Mexico, though the group as a whole is a lot more difficult than has been written about. All the teams in the group are no small risk for Italy.

September 11th? Is that a legal school holiday in Barbados?

What are you on, little fella? Viagra? Bad for the blood pressure and destroys precious penile tissue...

And be humble for once in your life, give up the jim jam speech..."cud"? That bespeak a chewing habit?

Dream on, sucka, start following teams from your shantytown land rather than the glorious, incomparable, historic teams of the land of the Caesars...

Yours truly,

Romulus

Mexico are a good side, they are only one place behind Italy and a few points on the FIFA ranking, but many say that means nothing. They have a good World Cup record, and will give the teams a run for their money. I think many are underestimating Mexico which might prove costly.
