Mexico's Victor Guzman, Raul Gudino stake their claims for starting spots

Herculez Gomez examines the state of the Mexican national team, which is experimenting with a new generation while also searching for a head coach.

The international break is now officially over for Mexico. Following a 3-2 win over Costa Rica last week, and a 1-0 loss to Chile on Tuesday night, El Tri has emerged from the October friendlies with a number of lessons learned.

With a focus on those last two matches, here is the latest Mexico hot-list:

Warming up

Victor Guzman, MF, Pachuca

Why he's here: In the recent search for the next generation of Mexican talent, Guzman easily stood out amongst his peers. During the victory against Costa Rica,...

Hirving Lozano not the only young talent set to lead Mexico forward

MEXICO CITY -- At one point during Tuesday night's 1-0 loss to Chile, Hirving Lozano flew down the wing to recover a ball one of his teammates had lost far up the field. Minutes later, he was marking Alexis Sanchez as the Manchester United star attempted to create a chance for his country. Later in the match, Lozano paired with Jesus Gallardo to pressure Chile into turning the ball over in their defensive third.

Ricardo Ferretti lauds Mexico youngsters: '80 percent of them will be in next World Cup'

After Mexico's 1-0 loss to Chile in Queretaro on Tuesday night, interim Mexico manager Ricardo Ferretti was mostly complimentary of his young group of players.

"We're talking about a new generation of young players and naturally, we have to think they can make mistakes and have ups and downs like any youngster," Ferretti said in the...

Mexico's Hugo Gonzalez 7/10 for solid saves in loss to Chile

Following last week's 3-2 win over Costa Rica, Mexico wrapped up the international break with a 1-0 friendly loss to Chile on Tuesday night. Despite Mexico's promising start to the clash, which included a few dangerous opportunities, Chile eventually took charge with a late resurgence that helped secure a goal in the 89th minute by Nicolas Castillo.

Positives

Throughout the entire first half, Mexico looked much proactive and energetic than Chile when it came to the attack. With more possession and...

Mexico made key strides in respectable last-minute loss to Chile

Here are three thoughts from Mexico's 1-0 loss to Chile in Tuesday's international friendly:

1. Late goal shouldn't overshadow hard-fought match

There was no 7-0 for Chile and there was no revenge for Mexico. Instead, an intense "friendly" between two sides that played as if points were at stake and in which a late Nicolas Castillo goal was the difference.

Mexico goalkeeper Hugo Gonzalez looked to be heading for the man-of-the-match after one fine save in each half, but should've done better...
