What’s the difference between a club and an international team? Clubs are international but internationals aren’t clubs.😂😂😂 But, the difference when it comes to futbol is clubs are smaller teams with multiple teams in each country while International teams are teams for a whole country.

The Mexican soccer team is known for their championships and for all their amazing players. They have two nicknames. They are “El Tri” and “El Tricolor” both of those means the three colors because of the team colors: red, green and white. Today, they have 3 different uniforms:👇
Since 1994, they have been qualified to be in 15 Fifa World Cups straight. That makes them one of six international teams that have achieved this. They have also been in many other tournaments such as Copa America and Copa Oro (Gold Cup). The most recent championship that they have won was the Gold Cup in 2015. They won the final against Jamaica’s international soccer team.
They have not lost since their current manager Juan Carlos Osorio joined the team. They also have very good players such as:
⚽ Javier “Chicharito” Hernández (#14 Forward)
⚽ Guillermo Ochoa (#13 Goalkeeper)
⚽ Carlos Vela (#11 Forward/Midfielder)
⚽ Giovani dos Santos (#10 Midfielder)
⚽ Oribe Peralta (#19 Forward)
The top scorer for this team is Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez. He is tied with Jared Borgetti. They both currently have 46 goals all time. In my opinion, I think that “Chicharito” will get more goals since he is barely 28 years old whereas Borgetti has already retired.
The Mexican National Team is an amazing team that has incredible soccer players. Even though they haven’t won the World Cup in a long while, I am sure that they will achieve it sooner or later. This team has had many opportunities but there are more to come. I, along with many others, am proud to call this team, my team!
