I supporte the Mexican Soccer team but lately they have not been playing very well. Despite their recent win against Trinidad and Tobago, the team does not seem to be headed in the right direction. I've always felt that Mexico's Team problem is not the skill of the players but their general attitude towards winning.

I feel there is some sort of inferiorioty complex problems in the way the Mexican soccer player thinks. They win against Brazil but lose against Honduras or Salvador. They have players that play incredibly well in Mexican teams, but when they play in Europe they lose their touch.

I just feel it would be a wast if the Mexican team did not make it to next World Cup. Hey, it happened to Holand a couple of years back, so it could happen to anyone.

I think it may be a long shot. I'm not sure why they are in such a funk.

I would love to see Mexico fail to qualify. That would make my year.

They've definately got the potential becase they have some really good players. They've got to be able to gel as a team for it to work though and at the moment that is an issue for them.

LOL, That sums it up pretty much. You are right. Although I do believe they have great players, their numbers do not show it, and their pride makes them look even worse. Dont get me wrong, I am a supporter of the Mexican team, buy lately they have been very dissapointing.
