Mexico started its World Cup preparations with a 0-0 draw against Wales at the Rose Bowl on Monday night.Playing the first of three tuneup matches before its Group F opener against defending champion Germany on June 17 in Moscow, a rampant El Tri attack could not find a way to beat Wales goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.Hennessey made several impressive saves, including sticking out his right foot to deny Mexico captain Hector Herrera's shot in the 56th minute from the edge of the 6-yard box. Mexico's roster also featured three players from the city's two MLS clubs, with brothers Giovani and Jonathan dos Santos representing the Galaxy, and Carlos Vela from expansion team Los Angeles FC, though Vela did not play.Wales captain Ashley Williams was subbed out immediately after he collided with Mexico striker Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez in the 17th minute.
