Violence, mismanaged protests, gunfights: Veracruz's problems cap off horror weekend for Mexican soccer

Herculez Gomez explains the circumstances that led to Veracruz giving up two goals without trying to stop Tigres.

MEXICO CITY -- A child crying in the arms of his mother on the field of Estadio Alfonso Lastras presented an appropriate visual representation of what was a nightmare weekend for Mexican soccer.

Violence, mismanaged protests and a suspended game capped off a weekend that the Mexican federation (FMF) and Liga MX will want to move on from as quickly as possible but will need to learn from moving forward. These were events that flew in the face of the idea that the Mexican game is modernizing and on...

Roberto Alvarado, Rodolfo Pizarro shine in Mexico's easy win over Panama

Roberto Alvarado (11) celebrates with teammates after opening the scoring for Mexico against Panama on Tuesday.

Mexico is now two for two in the group stage of the CONCACAF Nations League. Following last week's 5-1 thrashing of Bermuda, El Tri returned home to collect another three points during Tuesday night's 3-1 win over Panama.

The match also marked the Estadio Azteca debut for manager Gerardo "Tata" Martino, who now has 14 victories as national team boss.

Mexico's Jose Juan Macias making most of Nations League chances

It's been a question circling El Tri for at least a few years, but it now has a tentative answer: all signs point to Jose Juan Macias.

And if that sounds like hype or ladening unwanted pressure on a 20-year-old striker who has only started 33 games in Liga MX, the difference is that Macias has...

U.S. players lack 'passion and love' - Earthquakes coach Matias Almeyda

Weston McKennie feels Christian Pulisic's additional minutes for the USMNT will do him a load of confidence.
Shaka Hislop evaluates the state of the U.S. under Gregg Berhalter ahead of a crucial match vs. Canada.
Michael Bradley says the U.S. will have to be at their best to win their Nations League match in Canada.
Gregg Berhalter explains why he played Christian Pulisic in multiple positions in the USMNT's win vs. Cuba.

San Jose Earthquakes coach and former Argentina international Matias Almeyda warned that players from the United States need to play like every match matters and put more passion into their game. 

The United States competes for the 16th time this year, against Canada, in CONCACAF Nations League play on Tuesday. Canada hasn't beaten the U.S. since a 2-0 friendly win back in 1985, a stretch of 17 games. Last week, the United States beat Cuba, 7-0, in their most recent tournament match.
