It wasn’t supposed to end like that.
Mexico’s hopes of a first Copa America triumph weren’t just dashed by Chile in a one-sided quarter-final on Saturday. They were stamped on, put through a blender and then incinerated.
After 22 games without defeat, a run that stretched back 364 days, El Tri were routed 7-0 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
That’s right. The pick of the ties in the last eight finished Chile 7, Mexico 0. Astonishingly, it could have been even more.
