Mexican and Ecuadorian players competing

North and Central American soccer powerhouse Mexico was eliminated in the group stage of the South American Soccer Championship (Copa America).

Mexico drew 0-0 with Ecuador in the third match of Group B of the 2024 Copa America held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 1st (Korean time).

With this, Mexico and Ecuador now have 1 win, 1 draw, and 1 loss, and the second place in Group B, following Venezuela, which has won three games in a row, went to Ecuador.

Ecuador (goal difference +1) secured a ticket to the quarterfinals by beating Mexico (goal difference 0) on goal difference.

Originally, the Copa America was a competition to determine the best team in South America, but this year, not only 10 South American countries, but also 6 North and Central American countries, including Mexico, are participating, making it a festival for the entire American continent. 슬롯사이트

The top two teams from each of the four groups will advance to the quarterfinals and compete for the championship in a single match.

Mexico, which fell to third place in Group B behind Ecuador, is a strong team ranked 15th in the FIFA rankings. 

Among the countries belonging to the North and Central American Football Confederation, they are the second highest ranked team in FIFA after the United States (11th), and were considered to have the best performance in Group B, but were eliminated in the group stage.

Mexico only scored one goal in three group matches.

Ecuador (FIFA ranking 30th), who defeated Mexico with difficulty and advanced to the quarterfinals, will face Argentina, the winner of the 2022 Qatar World Cup.

Currently ranked number one in the FIFA rankings, Argentina, a strong contender for the title, won all of its Group A matches, scoring five goals and conceding none in three matches.

Meanwhile, Venezuela, ranked 54th in the FIFA rankings, pulled off an upset by taking first place in Group B.  

Venezuela, which defeated Ecuador 2-1 in its first match of the tournament, had already secured its place in the quarterfinals by winning 1-0 against Mexico in its second match.

Venezuela, with its momentum on the line, defeated Jamaica (3 losses, 53rd place), last in Group B, 3-0 to achieve a perfect record in the group stage.

Venezuela took the lead with Eduard Bello's goal in the 4th minute of the second half, and completed a three-goal victory with consecutive goals from Salomon Rondon in the 11th minute and Eric Ramirez in the 40th minute.

Venezuela's quarterfinal opponent is Canada (FIFA ranking 48th), ranked second in Group A.

Canada, led by coach Jesse Marsh, who was mentioned as a strong candidate to lead the Korean national soccer team, won 1, drew 1, and lost 1 in the group stage, beating Chile and Peru to advance to the quarterfinals. 카지노사이트
