Mexico played hard and I was rooting for them to pull off the upset.Mexico pushed Japan to the eight inning and even though they had bases loaded with 2 outs we lost that match in the end
Japan 3-2 Mexico
The good news is that the team looked completely different than against the Canadian team less than 24 hours later, but the lack of big scenario experience showed and mexicans did not close the deal when they got full house and needed to score just ONE run.
Now I hope they get a big boost confidence because they really looked great and Japan suffered against them. Now Mexico has to go for the rest of the 3 games in the round robin, Gold/Silver medal is almost out of sight but still could fight for the bronze
I fully concur!Why not skip the second half and/or extra time and proceed directly to the penalties? That would be exciting!
Most games I’ve watched have not been major league games (minor farm teams so no commercial breaks.)I found it painful in person. It felt unnecessarily long just to accommodate for commercials. I left after a few innings.
I prefer fast paced team sports.
