As these players have made the step up from the domestic league to Europe via Major League Soccer (U.S.), they have raised the level of the national team and acquired the ability to compete with Mexico and the United States.
・At the Mexico tournament 36 years ago, the team lost three straight games and scored no goals, but at this year’s tournament, they are more than just outsiders and have the potential to leave a mark for sure.
