...root for Trinidad and Tobago in tonight's game. The level of disgust and frustration is quite high following the Tri's limp performance in San Salvador on Saturday. On the Fútbol Picante blog, David Faitelson writes that a trip to South Africa is drifting farther and farther away, and repeats a sentiment uttered endlessly over the past few days: Mexican football has hit bottom. That's a dangerous opinion to be voicing, because as bad as el Tri looked on Saturday, dropping (or even tying) a must-win game at home against the cellar-dwellers of Concacaf qualifying would be a surefire way to further destroy the nation's confidence in its football team, and, quite possibly, to provoke a mass uprising.
But I don't think that'll happen. For whatever reason, I have a hunch that Aguirre will come out with a more potent squad (no Nery, please!), and said squad will play better than it has in months.
