Mexico vs Chile – International Friendly – Where to Watch

After beating Costa Rica 3-2 on Friday, Mexico will now take on Chile in another international friendly. Interim coach Ricardo Ferretti used a Liga MX-based lineup in the game against CONCACAF competition Costa Rica, but Tuesday’s game will see El Tri’s European-based players take the field.

But the last time these two national teams faced off, Chile walked away with a stunning 7-0 victory, a result that Mexico will be anxious to erase from people’s minds with a strong showing in La Corregidora.

Copa América: Chile vs Mexico – Recap and Highlights

copa america chileMexico is still winless in the Copa América, but they put on a much better performance tonight in a 3-3 draw with Chile. El Tri was looking to rebound after a disappointing goalless draw against Bolivia in their opening match, and they came out firing on all cylinders, twice taking the lead.

In an action-packed first half, Vicente Matías Vuoso gave Mexico the lead in the 20th minute, taking advantage of a moment of inattention by the Chilean back line to slot the ball home. However, it took just two minutes for Arturo Vidal to head home a cross from Charles Aránguiz and knot the score at 1-1.

Raúl Jiménez returned the lead to Mexico just before the half-hour mark with a header of his own, but Eduardo Vargas’s goal just before the break ensured it would be honors even at halftime.

Ten minutes into the second half, Chile earned a penalty kick after Gerardo Flores fouled Vidal in the box. Vidal himself took the spot kick and he took it well, giving Chile the lead for the first time that night.

It looked like the hosts were going to run away with it then, but Jorge Valdiva had a spectacular effort ruled out due to an offside call on Vidal. With Mexico trailing by just a single goal, Vuoso was able to level the score once more with his second goal of the night.

With the score at 3-3, Chile had another goal controversially ruled out for offside, after Alexis Sánchez’s effort was disallowed.

The draw leaves Chile at the top of the table, level on points with Bolivia, who have turned out to be the surprise of the tournament so far. Mexico, meanwhile, can still advance, but they’ll need to win their final group stage match against Ecuador in order to do so.



Chile: Claudio Bravo, Mauricio Isla, Gary Medel, Gonzalo Jara, Miiko Albornoz (Jean Beausejour 87′), Marcelo Díaz (Eugenio Mena 71′), Charles Aránguiz, Arturo Vidal, Alexis Sánchez, Jorge Valdiva, Eduardo Vargas (Mauricio Pinilla 84′).

Mexico: José de Jesús Corona, Gerardo Flores, Julio César Domínguez, Hugo Ayala, Adrián Aldrete (Carlos Salcedo 70′), Juan Carlos Medina (Javier Aquino 63′), Juan Carlos Valenzuela, Javier Güemez, Jesús Manuel Corona (Mario Osuna 77′), Raúl Jiménez, Vicente Matías Vuoso.

Mexico to Play Bolivia with Reduced Roster

el triAfter Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Chile, “el Tri” is heading to Colorado, where they’ll take on Bolivia on Tuesday night in Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (10:00 PM – Unimás / Univision Deportes / ESPN2). However, they’ll face the Bolivians with a reduced roster after Giovani dos Santos and Francisco Rodríguez picked up injuries in the game against Chile.

Dos Santos left the game in the 66th minute after appearing to pull a muscle just before taking a shot that went high. He left the field feeling the back of his left thigh, and he has returned to Spain and his club team, Villarreal.

Rodríguez has also returned to his club, Cruz Azul, after he limped off the field in the 46th minute after taking a hard knock to his left calf. Miguel Herrera explained that “Maza” suffered a “fairly strong knock” and that they preferred not to risk the defender.

“El Piojo” also added that he will not call up any replacements for Dos Santos or Rodríguez, and will stick with his remaining 20 players for Tuesday’s game against Bolivia.
