Mexico vs Colombia 2011: U-20 World Cup Showdown Expected to Be Historic


CORAL GABLES (LALATE) – Tonight’s Mexico vs Colombia 2011 futbol game (en vivo on Galavision) is expected to be historic, not just because Mexico is facing the host country in the quarterfinals, but also because Mexico U-20 hasn’t reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in decades. Mexico vs Colombia 2011 is the second of two quarterfinal matches this weekend; but it is also the match most dominating news.

In advance of today’s match, Mexico last advanced to the quarterfinals in 2007; before that, their last quarterfinals bid was in 1999. But in thirty plus years, Mexico’s U-20 team hasn’t reached the semifinals. Could that change today? Despite that history, Mexico’s players have won more individual awards in FIFA U-20 matches than players of any other country.

Mexico advanced to the Round of 16 following a draw against England. Mexico has made news this Copa Mundial with strong defensive moves and explosive goals. Earlier in this Copa Mundial, Mexico lost to Argentina 1-0 after Lamela delivered a stunning goal at the seventy minute mark. But Mexico was determined to advance to the Round 16 and did it after a 3-0 win against North Korea with a goal from Guarch and De Buen. Diego De Buen plays for Puma UNAM and Liga de Ascenso club Pumas Morelos.

Nevertheless, Mexico has a strong opponent tonight in Colombia. Lead by head coach Eduardo Lara, most of Colombia’s players originate from Deportivo Cali. Colombia advanced to the round of 16 after scoring six goals in group action.

Colombia has been on fire this World Cup. It destroyed France 4-1, beat Mali 2-0 and defeated South Korea 1-0. Colombia has a bench with enormous depth. Against France, Rodriquez and Arias scored while Muriel delivered two goals. Against Mali, Rodriguez scored again, aided by Valencia. And against South Korea, Muriel scored early in the first half.

Start time of tonight’s match is 6 pm EST en vivo on Galavision. James Rodríguez has been star of this Colombian squad so far. He plays professionally for Portuguese team F.C. Porto. Four years ago, he made news in leading his team to second place in the South American Under-17 championship. And how about Luis Muriel? Last year he was signed to Udinese Calcio; he was later loaned to Granada CF.
