Mexico's Raul Jimenez sits down with ESPN FC to discuss the pressure on El Tri to win the Gold Cup and whether playing in CONCACAF is good for them.

PASADENA, Calif. -- Gerardo "Tata" Martino had a message for LA Galaxy winger Uriel Antuna after the 21-year-old netted a hat trick in Mexico's 7-0 Gold Cup victory over Cuba on Saturday in the Rose Bowl.

"I'd tell him to not to listen to too much, not to go on social networks, not watch programs [on TV] because we [in the national team] won't be the ones letting this go to his head," said Martino in the news conference afterwards. "His performance was superb for someone who has just recently started...

Mexico's Raul Jimenez sits down with ESPN FC to discuss the pressure on El Tri to win the Gold Cup and whether playing in CONCACAF is good for them.

That's seven goals for the seven-time Gold Cup winners. During Saturday night's tournament-opener for Mexico, El Tri walloped Cuba through a 7-0 win at the Rose Bowl. Surrounded by a sea of more than 65,000 fans clad in red and green, Mexico's performance should be seen as a potential warning for future opponents. Next Up: Canada on June 19th.

For regular observers of the Mexico national team, the green promotional banners outside of Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium with meticulously edited portraits of Javier Hernandez, Hirving Lozano and Miguel Layun jumped out for a certain reason: none of those players was there. Nor, for that matter, was any other recognizable star player like Carlos Vela, Hector Herrera, Giovani dos Santos or Jesus "Tecatito" Corona. But given how many of those identical banners there were around...

Following Sunday's 3-2 victory over Ecuador, the goalkeeper once again had his gloves off and was taking aim. The good news for Mexico fans this time around -- unlike when he slammed the team's lack of direction last November -- is that he is now happy with the path Gerardo Martino is leading the team down.

"With the interim coach [Ricardo Ferretti] we didn't work a single day," Ochoa told reporters after...

Mexico coach Martino's first six months in charge: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno breaks down Carlos Vela's rocky relationship with the Mexico national team after announcing he won't play in the 2019 Gold Cup.
USMNT's Gregg Berhalter praises the Mexican federation for its success in CONCACAF and says the organization has set the benchmark for MLS and U.S. Soccer.

DALLAS -- Gerardo "Tata" Martino was announced as Mexico's head coach on Jan. 7. The first six months of his reign have felt much longer, perhaps because so much has happened in such a short span of time. News that a former Barcelona and Argentina manager would be coming in to take over El Tri was a significant boost for a national team that had been thwarted at the round-of-16 stage of the World Cup for a remarkable seventh consecutive time.
