Mexico vs. Costa Rica: 6 Things We Learned

Mexico had never tied three consecutive games at the Azteca in World Cup qualifiers before. El Tri received Costa Rica on home turf only to continue its winless drought.

The crisis is so deep that Mexico has not scored at the Azteca since September 2012, when the team defeated Costa Rica 2-0 in the third round of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifier.

The fans that attended the stadium in hopes to see El Tri win demanded the sacking of the manager, José Manuel de la Torre, chanting, “Chepo out, Chepo out.”

Here are six things we learned from the game.
