Unease ramps up in Mexico camp as 2-goal lead turns into loss in Colombia friendly

After a superb first 45 minutes of the match last night where Mexico displayed all sorts of skill and ability, they managed to reflect it on the scoreboard by taking a 2-0 lead into the locker room at the half. With goals that derived from high upfield pressure ending in a penalty and offensive patience with the ball, not making any rash decisions, culminating in a genius Alexis Vega move that froze the Colombia defense, leaving Gerardo Arteaga wide open for the second score, El Tri looked composed and like a World Cup team. Not to mention, leading against a very tough South American squad.
