Mexico's national team showed speed, power, and endurance throughout the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament, in particular in its win over the USA 4-2 last night.
Speed, power, and endurance are the three things needed if Mexico wants to make a World Cup run when it is held in 2014 in Brazil.
Since the next World Cup will be held in Latin America, it should be an advantage for Mexico's team over the powerful European teams.
It's estimated that around 80,000 of the 93,000 fans at the Rose Bowl last night were rooting for the Mexico's team.
Mexico fans should be excited with stars who shined throughout the tournament like Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez, Pablo Barrera, and Giovani dos Santos.
In particular, Giovani dos Santos really surprised soccer fans with his amazing goal to seal the win for Mexico's team over the USA.
As the winners of the tournament, Mexico qualifies for the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil as the representatives of CONCACAF.
That tournament will be key for Mexico as a primer to the World Cup.
If Mexico's team can make a good showing at the Confederations Cup, there will be no stopping this team which showed all the abilities to make a World Cup run.
