  1. Although this was a last minute victory for Mexico’s cause, the U-23 squad has shown an impressive form which allowed them to win all of their first three matches. They will face Canada this weekend for a ticket for the upcoming Summer Olympic games and rumors have been surrounding some of the members of Mexico’s squad about scouts looking for next “stars” to flee to the Old Continent. How true could this rumors be? And if true could their possible participation in the Olympics be the stage to launch them to European football.
