All fellow Mexicans please win something other than the gold cup and then come talk.. Yes Uruguay lost but they did have to play against the host and they did hit posts and created chances. In the end you either lose or win and the ball didn't want to go in! They could have easily had a penalty called in their favour but clearly didn't. Uruguay is still one of the top footballing nations while you guys keep on trying to reach our pedigree! We have players all over Europe just remember that.. Cheers
