ESPN gets it wrong. Mexico vs. Honduras?

March 30, 2009

ESPN is reporting that Mexico cruised to an easy finish over Honduras this past weekend despite the fact that Mexico faced Costa Rica. It looks as though much was overlooked in a hasty attempt to have an article published.

The ESPN article, which provides no author’s name, states:

“Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson is calling on his team for a repeat performance when they seek their first away win of the World Cup qualifying campaign against Costa Rica on Wednesday…Mexico cruised to a 2-0 victory over Honduras last night at the Estadio Azteca…”

It’s bad enough that the mistake was not caught but the article even properly quotes Sven-Goran Eriksson‘s remarks regarding Giovani dos Santos‘ prospects of seeing minutes against Honduras as well as his decision to have  Guillermo Ochoa in the net against Honduras.  ESPN writes, “Ochoa is very likely to start the Honduras match, too. I don’t need to change after Memo did everything perfectly.”

Quality reporting ESPN.

For an opportunity to read the article before it is either revised or taken down altogether, head over to:
