Yep. I just don't see how that's possible. I could understand it if soccer wasn't popular in Mexico, or was kind of popular but not the #1 sport, but Mexico eats, sleeps, and breathes soccer just like the South American and European powerhouses do.

I looked into it yesterday to see what others are saying and came across a Reddit thread that said they have awful leadership at the top. Not a good excuse, IMO; a group with their resources should be able to fix that problem.

They also said LigaMX overpays to keep Mexico's best players in Mexico, so they don't play in Europe. That doesn't really seem to add up either - maybe Mexico's players just aren't all that good and big European clubs don't want them, or aren't willing to pay as much as Mexican squads. They basically never have an international superstar playing for their team - I guess Chicharito is the closest?

Just look at the club teams their WC roster plays for - they've got 2 EPL players (one plays for a team that just got promoted), a few on bad La Liga teams, a couple for a mediocre Bundesliga team, 2 on a good Portuguese team (Porto), and arguably their best player plays for a good Dutch team. 9 play in Mexico and 3 play in MLS. That just isn't impressive for a large nation that is crazy about soccer.

These announcers might be a little bit biased towards Colombia.

Japan has great shirts.

They look like very traditional fabric used in yukata and other clothes.
