A Mexico team in search of magic to avoid a historic elimination

Mexico’s first two games in Qatar are unconvincing. In addition to having only one point on the clock, the selection failed to score a single goal.

Usually, Mexico offers an attacking game with some gaps behind, which makes them a typical Latino team“, explains Axel, account manager Mexican soccer FR on Twitter. “Today, this has been reversed: the selection plays a more defensive, more European game. But offensively, it’s nothing: for two years, the animation that is proposed is tasteless.

In Qatar, Mexico no longer has great individuals to lead its attack. Carlos candle retired from international duty after the Russian World Cup, while Javier “Chicharito” Hernández was dismissed following a dark history of prostitutes during a rally of the selection in September 2019.

In view of Qatar, Tata Martino was counting on an attacking trio made up of Jesus Manuel Coronad’Herving Lozano and of Raul Jimenez. The first is injured and has not been taken back for the World Cup. Lozano has not progressed as much as one would have hoped four years ago, in particular due to physical glitches.

As for Raul Jimenezthe Wolverhampton striker, he had become the major element of the team after 2018. Unfortunately, the striker of Wolves will never be the same player again after a serious career-threatening skull injury in 2020. This season, Jiménez has only accumulated 4 games for his English club. In Qatar, the one who was the flagship player of the Verde recently had to settle for only two entries into the game.
