Soccer: Mexico coach suspended by FIFA, will miss Alamodome match

Mexico came into the Gold Cup as favorites to win the tournament and, aside from a few lapses in concentration, were clearly the better side on the day and appear ready to make good on their promise.

What: Mexico will take on El Salvador in Group C play in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Federation Internationale de Football Association said on Friday it was suspending Mexico's soccer coach Juan Carlos Osorio for six games, saying he directed insulting words at match officials during a game against Portugal. El Tri maintained 66% of possession while completing their passes at a 90% clip, including 82% in the attacking half. "Mr Osorio is to be suspended for six official matches and has also been sanctioned with a warning and a fine of 5,000 Swiss francs ($5,040)", Federation Internationale de Football Association added. The shift to a game plan that enhanced build up of play and possession proved to be an accurate decision for the coaching staff since El Salvador was looking to tear through the field with their pacey forwards.
