Mexico Wins Sub 17 Tourney!
I don't often get excited about football - soccer, but Mexico is having a banner year. A couple of weeks after defeating the US for a win in the Copa de Oro, Mexico's under 17 squad tonight came away with the championship after defeating Uruguay 2-0. The tourney was hosted in Mexico.
These are difficult times for many people in Mexico, fighting both negative world opinion and a cartel war at home. The sub-17 win is exactly the kind of thing Mexicans need to lift the spirits and keep the pride shining.
Guadalajara hosts the Pan American games in October giving the Mexico side another chance to shine in sport in 2011.
