Chicharito rallies El Tri to a draw against Nigeria



The question many ask about the Men’s National Team, El Tri is whether or not they will ever win a match in 2013. In six matches where three of those matches were CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers, El Tri has failed to walk away with a win.

Friday night’s friendly against Nigeria over at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, the drought continued for El Tri. Despite being down a man, the 10-man Mexican squad was unable to produce a much needed game-winner.

While Chicharito’s second goal of the evening in the 70th minute rallied his team from a 2-1 deficit to level everything at 2-2, the reality is they’ve continued to struggle in the closing minutes of another match they appeared they could have won. For a full recap of the article, please go to
