Mixed emotions after latest El Tri friendly

“I’ve been replaying Rafa Marquez’s header from the first half over and over again in my head. It’s not a conscious decision, but every time I even begin to think about the Nigeria friendly, the replay rudely interjects and occupies my mind. The memory nudges its way past Guillermo Ochoa’s remarkable saves and shoves Hector Herrera’s movement forward out of its sight. I can’t help it.” ESPN

El Tri depth chart: Not much has changed for Herrera
“With fewer than 100 days until the World Cup kicks off in Brazil on June 12 in Sao Paulo, this is now a crunch time for coaches chiseling down their squads to be as effective as possible at the summer tournament. Players know that the window of opportunity is shrinking, but that it’s still there with a run of performances. It is a time when every slight injury to a player causes ripples of panic through nations, and a couple of bad games from a star striker becomes a topic of national conversation.” ESPN
