THE MERO MERO OF MEXICO
& nbsp; // March 20 & nbsp; 2017 // & nbsp;
It was hard to pick a Mexican player which highlight one of our "unforgettable moments" we become comic style drawing. The list starts obviously evaluated the plasticity of Hugo Sanchez, a shaft scorer and great career in Europe, he was still solvent Rafa Marquez and its strong presence in the selection, and even winked at the goalkeeper Jorge Campos showmanship. But Cuauhtemoc was more.
It happens that when you see guys like Cristiano Ronaldo, to give a clear example, know that this is an athlete, it is clear that a high-level athlete. However when you see guys like Cuauhtémoc - or pacifier Suazo - his image is far from that of an athlete. Prejudice leads to error - and subsequent humiliation in court, if you make that mistake is soccer player - thinking that is not a great athlete. There is the issue; Much of the popularity of football is that it is a sport in which there are many skills that go beyond athletics, and thus allowing many people without physical powers may even surpass others if they do. White is one of the great examples. It was not particularly fast or strong, neither tall nor strong punch, but had all the other skills that a great playmaker should have; high spatial location, good field vision, reading the game, good ball control, and a lot of conditions that can only be obtained in the neighborhood; lack of respect for the provisions necessary to compete on equal terms against the big, sharp cunning to provoke and exploit moments of weakness - or innocence - of opponents, & nbsp; and last but not least, a tremendous balls to always give their best for the national team in official matches, when it.
View Cuauhtemoc in court was the constant confirmation that talent and a good brain worth a million times more than a thousand players-athletes running in all directions.
The "Cuauhteminha" is the perfect summary of his game. Aesthetically unorthodox, but the perfect solution to take advantage of a disadvantage, occupying the body of his opponents, and his two arms like the wings of the eagle that is literally present in its name, its flag, and the club his loves.
We hope you enjoy this tribute!

BREAKING THE HISTORY
// March 14, 2017 //
We, the Chileans, have never won a world cup. We are very passionate about football, and sometimes that impetus leads us along the winding road of hope, which often goes blindly and without sufficient signs of danger on the road. With the years accumulate disappointments, but also the eye is sharpened when to re-enclose the illusion, when there really is a team with which you can fight.
Perhaps for all this we can empathize with the Spanish feeling associated with the moment immortalized in this humble drawing.
Generation after generation full of football promises, players born for glory, but never to raise this cup. Years of repeating and discussing with friends such as "Pushed the Divine Zamora", "Michel's ghost goal", "1994 elbow" or "South Korea robbery in 2002". Bitter tales that accumulate on each other until 2008, a year in which the work of reforming and refreshment of players gives its fruit, managing to distort history and win the Eurocopa.
Now the Spanish team not only promised, but had a clear style of play, great technical bill, much pass, lots of possession, and therefore great control of the game.
What a good time to go to a World Cup!
Surely hope was there, more nourished than ever, because this time, finally, Spain came not only as a projection, but as a certainty, but that would not be easy!
Despite the great tactical and technical work of the Spanish team, every game played was a problem, a swamp, a stumbling block. The vast majority of their opponents chose to back down their ranks, defend with the full bus, and counter-punch if given the chance. A shame. At least Chile was the exception in that sense; To die with his boots on. Spain methodically and patiently did their thing in every confrontation; Took possession of the ball and played the ball until the space opened, and in that second, in that blink, put precision passes that allowed to break walls.
The final was more of the same. The Netherlands entered knowing that it was not enough opponent for this Spain. He grouped his players back, and when he could not with the "tiquitaca" kicked after kick. The violence would have worked against others less prepared, against others less tanned on court, but did not make a dent in players with their balls and their head in place, who know that those kicks stick when there is no more resource to cut the game.
The soul of Spain was paralyzed with the start of Robben, that was the goal of slate, the pre-designed play with which we all knew that Holland hoped to close the game, but Casillas did not want that to be written history, it would not be that way . Holland simply had no other way.
The cups have the virtue of being even more extreme physically than the common tournaments. I write virtue because all the time that the players must be in concentration, the continuity of the effort, the injuries, the pains, the internal fights, are those that finally make emerge the real champions, to those who are prepared and determined to do what Necessary in those times of high demand. In this case the player that emerges is Iniesta. Any player with less hierarchy would have lived as a problem, like one of those balls that burn, and you can see that they just want to comply with kicking it so that the moment is over soon. But no, it was Iniesta who was in charge of managing that ball, a guy who knows what it costs that the ball gets there, with that profile, with that amount of space, with that speed. For him it was not a problem, it was the perfect opportunity to end the agony in a single shot, 4 minutes from penalties. Without hesitation he crossed it forcefully, with the whole body, with the whole country pushing his foot, and the rest is history, but one of those stories that is worth remembering.
For when you want to remember that important goal, we created this image in the style of our football cartoon "Pichanga". We hope you like it!

THE MOMENT WE BECOME CHAMPIONS
// March 10th 2017 //
There are unforgettable moments in the memory of each person, sometimes more near invisible scars, others, more like a cosmic tattoo. There are also indelible moments we share with others, and that entrench forever relations worth saving. Finally, there are moments immortals crossing the life of an entire country, that identify us, and that unite us around a transversal experience. A good example is the earthquakes; we all remember what we were doing at the time of each strong earthquake in which we live, and allows us to relate this experience and join it to the experiences of other Chileans, regardless of whether it was more or less tragic.
The first Copa America won by Chile is exactly the same, a seismic wave that travels throughout the country, not from south to north, but from the inside out, shaking everything in its path, knocking down these ossified constructions defeatism and chaqueteo, leaving the floor & nbsp; all those thoughts type "can not", "the cup look, but not touch", "moral victory" and covering them with enough land to build a new mentality above, that in which we are able to fight on equal terms with any opponent, that is, you can achieve the impossible, that in which we can pursue our dreams and achieve them. That in which are champions!
We wanted to shape the collective memory through this drawing the precise moment the ball slowly enters the Argentinean goal, with the goalkeeper flying to the other side, while all players, the stadium and the rest of Chile jump to scream GOAL! .
