How good is the Mexican National Team- The purpose of this thread is not to start a loud argument but to really understand where Mexico stands in the world. Let me explain. I am a north american who has been watching Mexican soccer for over 20 years. The true standing of the mexican national team puzzles me. At times in the elevation of the Azteca they look like they could beat any team in the world outside of Brazil (not their 23 and under team which they did beat). At other times especially against physical and big european and neo-european teams (see-La Republica Oriental de Uruguay in Chicago and England in England) they look like any other Concacaf team. While I'm a great admirer of the Mexican people and Mexican soccer I have difficulty believeing that they are the sixth best team in the world as per the FIFA rankings. What do you think?
