Mexico's ideal Gold Cup XI is coming together nicely

Mexico's Raul Jimenez sits down with ESPN FC to discuss the pressure on El Tri to win the Gold Cup and whether playing in CONCACAF is good for them.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It's job done for Mexico in Group A of the Gold Cup, with El Tri picking up nine points from the group stage for the first time since 2011. In general terms, it has been a positive start to the summer for Gerardo "Tata" Martino.

Martino has talked regularly about the "Plan A" for the team and it is slowly but surely coming together. And that's good news, because the Argentine doesn't have and doesn't want to possess a Plan B, or Plan C, in the near future.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Mexico coach Gerardo "Tata" Martino believes sooner or later a Copa America involving the whole American continent will become a reality.

The Argentine was questioned about the travel and distances in the Gold Cup in the United States this summer and was reluctant to give his opinion on what should change, although he did hint he believes there will eventually be a united Copa America.

"The Gold Cup has been played for a long time, I'm the new face at this Gold Cup," said Martino....

Mexico managers Tata Martino and Juan Carlos Osorio are more similar than you think

CHARLOTTE -- There's a tendency to get carried away with new coaches, like a new car or new clothes. There's an initial excitement, but as time goes by, they lose their shine and sparkle. Gerardo "Tata" Martino still has that fresh kind of feel with the Mexican national team. To use the old cliche: He's still in the honeymoon stage.

After six games and six wins and with Mexico preparing for what should be another comfortable victory against Martinique on Sunday, everything appears rosy. Martino...

Mexico delayed 10 hrs ahead of Martinique clash

Mexico's Raul Jimenez sits down with ESPN FC to discuss the pressure on El Tri to win the Gold Cup and whether playing in CONCACAF is good for them.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Mexican national team endured a 10-hour delay in traveling from Denver to Charlotte ahead of Sunday's Gold Cup clash with Martinique, eventually getting to the team hotel at 5 a.m. on Friday due to a tire problem with the plane that was due to transport them.

El Tri was supposed to set off from Denver around 2 p.m. Mountain Time and arrive in Charlotte at 7 p.m. Eastern Time, confirmed the Mexican federation, but the technical problem with the charter plane left the team not...
