FIFA bans Mexico soccer coach for six games for insulting language

Mexico manager Juan Carlos Osorio suspended six matches, will miss Gold Cup

Juan Carlos Osorio has been suspended following the FIFA Confederations Cup for acting aggressively towards FIFA officials, FIFA announced on Friday. Mexico won the 2015 Gold Cup and has won the tournament a record-seven times.

Hugo Ayala and Jair Pereira are both experienced and solid Liga MX defenders, but Monterrey's Cesar Montes is a player with the potential to be a regular for Mexico for the next decade if he can prove himself. Marin, a 24-year-old defender for Chivas, powered his header in for his first international goal.

But, alas, even without Osorio present, the same issues remain.

MF Jesus Duenas, 5 - An erratic match from the midfielder. However, that was two years ago and the Mexicans enter the 2017 Gold Cup in a completely different fashion. Mexico's debut is slated for Sunday against El Salvador. I'm excited, I cannot wait to meet the lads, get on the training pitch and then get on the pitch to play.

No matter. El Tri is trying to win this tournament for a fourth time in five editions.

Mexico launched their CONCACAF Gold Cup title defense with a comfortable 3-1 victory over El Salvador in their Group C opener on Sunday.

The punishment was a harsh one, although it's unclear what exactly Osorio said.

Everton is not welcoming back a player as energetic and dangerous in front of the goal as the precocious teenager who left in 2004.

Once the third goal was scored, the match ended up being a training session, where Mexico worked on possession and movement of the ball.

It also earned Torres a move to Houston, but his first two seasons there were difficult; the striker didn't score a single league goal.

The disciplinary committee of soccer's world governing body found Osorio guilty of "using insulting words towards the match officials while displaying an aggressive attitude towards them" in the match, which Mexico lost 2-1 on July 2. Meanwhile, Mexico could also see a big performance from the pesky Orbelin Pineda, who will be a nuisance every time that he's on the field.

Osorio's squad has enough to get through a group containing El Salvador, Jamaica and Curacao, but he'll need at least one of the unproven strikers to make a mark if Mexico is to win the tournament. Jesus Gallardo whipped in a floating cross and Elias Hernandez - unmarked at the back post - volleyed the ball into the net. Was efficient with his passing, when he was involved and was slightly involved in the build up to Mexico's second.

MF Rodolfo Pizarro, 7.5 - After a dull start, Pizarro later proved to be a playmaker for El Tri with his creative and exciting passes in the attack.
