Victor Guzman of Mexico celebrates after scoring his first goal.
Victor Guzman has come a long way in the last few months.

MONTERREY, Mexico -- Victor "Pocho" Guzman's first goal for Mexico goal in Thursday's 3-2 victory over Costa Rica was the closing of a chapter of sorts inside Estadio Universitario.

As Guzman celebrated his golazo -- the midfielder ghosted in at the far post, received a right-wing cross and volleyed into the top corner past a helpless Keylor Navas -- few watching realized just how much it had meant to him and its relevance.

"It'll remain in my mind forever," the 23-year-old said after the...

Costa Rica's recent rise has created a new regional rival for Mexico

MEXICO CITY -- The Estadio Azteca earned its reputation as a fortress for Mexico's national team by way of sheer physical imposition. The cavernous building is surrounded by stands that appear to rise straight up into the sky, filled to the brim with fans on game day.

Coupled with Mexico City's high altitude and notorious smog, the Azteca literally takes the opposition's breath away. These conditions combined to provide El Tri with a near-guaranteed win against opposition for the whole of the 20th...

Alexis Vega among Liga MX players overlooked by current Mexico squad

Another exciting round of friendlies are about to kick-off for Mexico. With matches set against Costa Rica and Chile during the international break, several fringe and inexperienced options will now have a chance to make a name for themselves for Mexico. In a transitionary stage for the national team after the World Cup, El Tri will now need to test out several new faces who have the capabilities of making an impact in the near future.

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop assesses potential moves for Hirving Lozano, Ever Banega, Anthony Martial and many more in Transfer Rater.

MONTERREY, Mexico -- Hirving Lozano arrived at the Mexico City airport in the early hours of Monday morning with his hood covering his forehead, his sleeping daughter wrapped around his neck and a tired look on his face. With cameras focusing in on the 23-year-old, fans asking for selfies and reporters interrogating him, Lozano paused to make sure his wife had her ride sorted before descending into a car to take him to Mexico's training camp.

It wasn't the snapshot of your average footballer turning...
