Guardado: Mexico's 'golden' era fell short of World Cup objectives

USMNT's Gregg Berhalter praises the Mexican Federation for their success in CONCACAF and says they've set the benchmark for MLS and U.S. Soccer.

Mexico team captain Andres Guardado believes that the country's "Golden Generation" left a lot to be desired after falling one step short of the quarterfinal stage in each of the last four World Cups.

Real Betis forward Lainez's plans this summer have been the subject of much speculation in Mexico, with the U20s World Cup starting on May 23 and ending on June 15, the day the Gold Cup begins, but the 18-year-old will participate in the former.
