And it has to be said that even when Mexican players have failed in their Euro ambitions, their value has not decreased. Kikín went to Benfica for 4 million and Tigres paid 4.5 to bring him back. Bravo went there on loan and since the beginning it was obvious he wasn't good enough. The Guarch deal was clear from the beginning, he was going to play with the feeder team, not Espanyol themselves. As for Juárez and Barrera, I don't know how much América and Cruz Azul paid for them, but I'd be surprised if it was much less than what West Ham and Celtic paid for them.
