I'm sure you all know by now, but yesterday in front of 100,000 people at Estadio Azteca, Richard Sanchez and the Mexico U17 National Team defeated Uruguay 2-0 to win the 2011 U17 World Cup, going undefeated in the process. Sanchez received mostly rave reviews during the tournament and the chatter about him on Twitter has been very positive. FC Dallas has a real star in the making on their hands here.

Congratulations to Richard, a World Champion and a hero in Mexico!
