At Mexico, soccer began developing in various regions of the nation, together with the very first form of the organized championship being the Primera Fuerza, that was a neighborhood league consisting of several teams around the Federal District area. Gamers were semi-professional in this time, at a time where Europe had previously fostered soccer professionalism.
Achievement Of Mexican Soccer Team
- Participating in the first World Cup, the Mexico soccer team was not considered a football power at that point, which was verified with their lack of results from World Cup qualifications until 1950. Although the team was a continuous presence in the World Cup, they had tough times competing against the dominant.
- European and South American countries just won 1 match in 5 tournaments, against Czechoslovakia in 1962. However in 1970, to promote soccer nationally and to see the economic importance of hosting a World Cup, Mexico was able to get hold of the rights to arrange their first World Cup in history.
- The Liga MX was able to achieve the quarter-finals on this occasion, which remains their biggest general performance thus far. But they would equal this operation 16 years and 4 World Cups afterward, again on the home ground, since they would organize the 1986 World Cup, considered by many as the most entertaining in the history of soccer.
- Nowadays, reaching the quarter-finals of a World Cup is seen as harder than it was in the 70s or even 80s and even though Mexican soccer progressed considerably, they’re still suffering in leading competitions when facing football giants in Europe or South America.
- On the other hand, the future is looking much brighter for Mexican football in general and also for the Mexico national soccer club. Club soccer at the country is currently deemed among the richest from the Americas, and a few great organizations take part in the Copa Libertadores, a competition which was permitted only for South American clubs.
- Several leading quality gamers have moved in the Mexican league towards stronger ones, the clearest examples being Rafael Marquez and Giovani Dos Santos, who has been purchased by Spanish side FC Barcelona and are both important members of the group. With both of these players at the team, as well as several other emerging abilities playing in the national league, the Mexico national soccer team appears harder than ever and ready to conquer their quarter-final greatest end in the upcoming World Cup in South Africa, 2010.
