Mexico will face the U.S. in a one-match playoff this weekend for a spot in the Confederations Cup. As strange as that premise is to begin with, it gets weirder still for Mexico since this game will mark the end of interim manager Tuca Ferretti’s four-match reign, because he doesn’t want the job full time after filling in for Miguel Herrera, who was sacked for punching a reporter at Philadelphia airport. But Juan Carlos Osorio has accepted the job and will take over next week, according to ESPN FC.
And now, with all this going on, the players are wearing deflated balls on their heads during training sessions. This is goalkeeper Moises Munoz wearing his new hat and perhaps crying out for help.
This team needs stability and they need it fast.
