The Rockets are off to their best start since
AP Welcome to the new golden age of Mexican soccer.
No matter what the age level or competition, El Tri has been bringing home trophies and medals, usually of the golden variety.
Mexico, Honduras and Messi And of course, there are more challenges and opportunities to bring home wins and precious medals on the horizon as World Cup qualification begins on June 8 and the Olympics from July Aug. From what I have seen from the Mexicans, they have a pretty solid side Alan Pulido and Marco Fabian, among others, have impressedalthough their defense, particularly their play on set pieces, certainly can be improved.
As it turns out, Mexico could wind up getting some help. While El Tri and Honduras have qualified as U teams, they, along with the 14 other participants, will be allowed to use as many as three overage players. Given the talent that Mexico boasts at the senior level, coach Luis Fernando Tena has his choice of riches.
Where do you begin? In a perfect world, that striker would be the one and only Chicharito, who would be a perfect fit for this team.
He would give it a world-class striker, someone who could decide close games, turning losses into draw and ties into victories. While Tena said that Javier Hernandez would be a "natural" candidate, he might not get his wish if Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson fights allowing Hernandez to play in the Olympics.
United could lose several players to the Olympics, including the Great Britain team. Of course, that might not necessarily be the best public relations move, especially if Mexico is drawn to play a game or two at Old Tragfford, ManU home.
With Chicharito in the lineup, Mexico should have a fighting chance of getting out of its group and even into the medal round and become the first CONCACAF team to win an Olympic soccer medal of any kind.

But just remember, there are two sides to history -- continuing it, as in keeping the status quota, or making some news, sometimes some earth-shattering news.
After Mexico edged Honduras on Monday, defender-midfielder Miguel Ponce walked into the mixed zone after the match with a gold medal draped around his neck, I asked him if he would love to have one of those awarded to him in London in August.
