Does It Still Hurt? It’s Been Nine Years Since “No Era Penal”
It's been 3,287 days. It was a hot summer day, not just in Brazil, but here in El Paso. El Tri fans knew that this game had to be won- if they lost, it was over. In the end, it was 2-1 and everyone's hopes went down the drain. It may sound dramatic, but that is how intense it gets during World Cup summer.
The curse ended with this past World Cup- but not for the better! After seven World Cups of getting eliminated in the Round of 16, Mexico was eliminated in the Group Stage and didn't even make it to the round of 16! It's obvious something needs to change. But for now, we all still yell: No Era Penal!
