NO argument there. Until Mexico sacks the likes of its aged dinosaurs they will never advance past quarters. Consistently gt out of group play, but they need a better push from their youth indeed.
Especially this Golden Generation of players, how often do you get a Dos Santos, Vela, Chicharito, and Hector Moreno at the same time. Even though Conejo was 37 I gave Aguirre the benefit of the doubt since experience often pulls throgh in so many tight spots like voter turnout for elections and even sports like NBA finals, but there was SUCH a talent gap in Mexico with the new kids that it was becoming glaring as the days wore on. I also give Aguirre credit for giving Chicharito a chance to play in the friendlies, then getting selected, then getting playing time, and finally starting against Argentina (with good results!)
