Ramon Rayas´ side to satisfy high expectations
The Mexican National team has set their goals and they understand what they need to accomplish in the Beach Soccer Worldwide Tour Riviera Maya Cup 2014
A great challenge. For Mexico there is no other way to label the BSWW Riviera Maya Cup 2014, which will take place from the 16th to 18th of May at Mamita's Beach Club in Playa del Carmen. The Mexican side knows that their fans are expecting a lot from them. Especially with the Tri playing at home. Ramon Raya, the Mexico coach that led them to the final of the World Cup in 2007, is fully aware of the standards he and the fans have set for the National Selection. The coach and the players realize the responsibility that staying true to those standards entails. "We know that our people want to see us perform at a high level and we want to confirm that trust," says Raya.
Obviously, it will be anything but easy for the Aztec side, in part because in this Riviera Maya Cup 2014 the hosts are going to see the faces of their most bitter rivals, starting with the tetracampeona Brazil . Despite being immersed in a generational change, the green and yellow squad is always a difficult adversary, as explained by Raya, "Brazil is always Brazil featuring an inexhaustible talent pool, and whoever plays, they are a more dangerous team than you think. Tying to stop a player means another player can hurt you. All their players have the ability to win the game. "
Another contender is the neighboring United States. In addition to the traditional rivalry between the two teams, in all sports, the fact that the Americans seized the continental crown in the last FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2013 CONCACAF qualifier. The off the field leader responsible for guiding the Aztecs says about their border-sharing rivals, "Now they have even more experience. In addition to being a team with a lot of spirit, the fact that playing in a World Cup always makes you grow as a group."
The third and final competitor is Germany. The German team has not faced Mexico many times but Ramon says, "Anytime you have a country with a great football tradition that is now becoming a force in beach soccer, it's only a matter of time before an explosion of talent occurs and you put together a championship team.”
The Tri are facing these challengers and are also in a period of change, including new prospects and a team overhaul, but this BSWW Riviera Maya Cup is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate their power. The setting for the beautiful Riviera Maya is the ideal place for it; it combines an idyllic setting with the passion of a people who love Beach Soccer, as already shown in previous editions.
