Mexico vs Spain August 11 2010 : Mexico vs Espana 2010 Draw 1-1 – Earlier today Mexico and Spain went at it in a friendly match which took place at the Estadio Azteca.
If you expected the new World Cup champions to dominate the match, well think again.

The match ended in a tied 1-1 on Wednesday afternoon thanks to Javier Hernandez who scored in the 12th minute but David Silva was able to give Spain a 1-1 draw later on.

The match that was held in the Azteca Stadium as part of the celebration of the bicentenary of beginning of the Mexican War of Independence revealed one thing for certain-the champs must be really tired if they can not beat Mexico that was eliminated during the round of 16, when they lost 1-3 to Argentina.
The other striking revelation of the game was that the vuvuzela should have stayed in South Africa and never crossed the Atlantic to settle in Mexican soil.


Let us hope that the Spanish squad gets some time off to really rest and recalibrate because there is another friendly match on September 7 against Argentina in Buenos Aires and you don’t want to do like the French who got their butt whipped on Wednesday night 2-1 in a friendly match against Norway in Oslo.
This what the lineups looked like:

MEXICO: Guillermo Ochoa (Jesus Corona, 56), Efrain Juarez, Francisco Rodríguez, Héctor Moreno (Leobardo Lopez, 66), Carlos Salcido, Rafael Marquez (Paul Aguilar, 58), Gerardo Torrado, Andres Guardado (Fausto Pinto, 70), Giovani Dos Santos (Elias Hernandez, 66), Carlos Vela (Enrique Esqueda, 58), Javier Hernandez (Pablo Barrera, 45).

SPAIN: Iker Casillas (Victor Valdes, 45), Alvaro Arbeloa, Carles Puyol (Sergio Ramos, 45), Carlos Marchena (Gerard Pique, 66) Ignacio Monreal, Sergio Busquets (Xavi Hernandez, 62) Bruno Soriano (Pedro Rodriguez, 72 ), Cesc Fabregas (Xabi Alonso, 45), Santi Cazorla, Juan Mata (David Silva 45), Fernando Llorente (Jesus Navas, 45).

  2. Mr.chismoso says:

    Chicharrito is not all that good. Im tired of people talking about him like if hes plays like C.Ronaldo.

  3. Todito says:

    Just a correction – Spain scored in extra time at the end of the game, not “a few minutes later”.

  4. Jose Hernandez says:

    The spanish team is at this point number one in the world they are the world champions but to blame fatige for the tie aganst mexico is realy stupid! i will give you some reasons for the 1-1 first: the game was played in azteca stadium where the mexican team has only lost one time in its entire history! second: the mexican couch actually put the best players on the pitch for this game unlike his predecesor who didnt have any idea or respect for his best players! third: althuogh the spanish team is the best at this time it is not perfect in fact i remember it losing a game against a second rate team in the confederations cup, tieing a game against mexico in mexico isnt much of a surprice if you ask me.

  5. Jose Hernandez says:

    concerning chicharito and ronaldo lets compare using the world cup performance too evaluate them c.r. made 0 goals j.h. i think scored 2 goals in three games c.r. played complete games j.h. played only half time in his games c.r. couldnt score even though he played with one of the best national teams in europe and he isnt lighting up the scorbourds with real madreid either. on the other hand j.h. hasnt stoped scoring goals in all the teams his played for including manchester united,thats why we here alot about chicharito! get used to it.

    Who the F*&y*K says he plays like C. Ronaldo???…DOn’t make S^&^&t up….he is a kid and you have to give him a chance…if you knew anything about futbol you would know what i am taling about…looser

  7. José says:

    ¡Por favor! Fue una tomada de pelo. Más arreglado no puedo haber estado!!

    To all the Cerotes that didn’t had a team in the World Cup, we always be better than you, so just shut the f*ck up and live with it. Viva Mexico Putoooos.

  9. ManU says:

    No! tiredness should not be an issue at this point, after the WC they celebrated and had some vacation down time of nearly 3 weeks leaving time for training, the problem with Spain was the lineup and the style of play (certain positioning of players that were not beneficiary to the game) Also I don’t think they really gave a fuck, after all it was just a friendly, if they play with the same “Were already World champs” attitude expect a loss against Argentina.

    P.S Mexico isn’t all that bad-and Javier Hernandez is a hell of a talented kid that will improve our positioning here in Manchester

    To the ignorant fool that wrote this. Mexico has been making that type of sound at Aztec stadium since the late 70′s, way way before the vuvuzelas were used in South Africa.

  12. LaLa says:
