El Tri soccer triumphs twice at London Olympics

LONDON - The Mexican Olympic Team has won two matches thus far in the Olympic men's soccer competition. El Tricolor opened the London Games with a 0-0 tie with South Korea last week. Last Sunday, México defeated Gabón 2-0 and awaits the Swiss contingent on Wednesday. "We're lucky that even with a tie, we can still pass to the next round," said head coach Luis Fernando Tena, "but obviously that's not our idea. We want to qualify (to the quarterfinals) in first place and we're looking to triumph."
